Where is Your Pain?

Where is Your Pain?

My general approach to treating the body is to understand the systems of muscles, joints, and movement that stress damaged or painful tissues. In general, I do not treat diagnoses because a diagnosis only tells me which tissue is irritated. It does not indicate what is the cause of your pain.

As you will see, fixing the causes of the irritation is what fixes the pain. This requires a shift in your thinking. The current perception is that the damaged tissue is the problem. While it may (or may not) be the tissue causing pain, the actual problem is in the fact the other players (muscles, bones, and movement habits) designed to support that damaged tissue are not functioning properly, causing it to breakdown. Typically these are systemic problems rather than a single tissue or joint problem.
