Someone recently asked me which medical interventions I like best. She said she heard of a certain therapeutic device often used in physical therapy clinic.
I don’t think she quite had the gist of what I do yet.
Rather than use medical interventions, when it is possible, I suggest the use of natural therapies such as:
- massage and other self-help muscle/soft tissue treatment to eliminate tight muscles that cause pain
- correcting diet and eating REAL food and getting rid of vitamin and mineral deficiencies because bodies need these little powerhouses to function well
- drinking plenty of water so support muscle function
- correcting posture that strains muscles and causes dysfunction and pain and getting back into neutral positions.
We used to be in neutral, balanced postures when we were little children.
What happened was we got into bad furniture, car seats, desk chairs and habits.
But we can change! 🙂
Conventional medicine usually treats symptoms. Rather than treating symptoms, my goal is to help people get to the root of the pain–to the cause–and get rid of the cause.
Bodies are so logical! But they complain when we do things they don’t like.
And that’s what causes pain.
