Fed up of being in pain?
A long time ago, we had pain that originated from boney changes in our spine. We had physiotherapy and a long, long course of osteopathy. We felt better, but we were still having to take pain killers. We had to stop doing what we loved. Our martial arts practise was over after 7 years of dedicated practise - we were not going to reach our second Dan black belt and this was sad. We were avid horse riders and now we were being told to stop this activity too. Our visit to the Doctor and the tests that followed confirmed that the athletic life I had led had started to take its toll on my skeletal system. The Doctor told me that it was time to give up my sports and lead a more sedentary life.
As far as I was concerned, my life felt like it was over. I was not ready to give up on my pained, but otherwise strong body. Nights passed and sleep eluded me due to pain. Pain killers became my best way through this period. I asked the physiotherapists what I was supposed to do. How would I manage my pain levels? They recommended a Pain Management Clinic.
The truth is, when we are in pain, we can become locked in to a pain cycle. Pain becomes the norm for your body. Seeking assistance in the early stages of pain offers better results for pain management.
What can we do to minimise pain? We have to look for the pain triggers and we have to deal with them. This may mean modifying or getting rid of an activity that causes us pain. It may even be necessary to stop some activities altogether; this should be avoided, but may be an option for activities we do not like anyhow.
Our latest book takes you through the stages necessary to identify your pain triggers. We learnt these technique when we were managing our own pain and during the 12 years plus that we have been specialist Sports Massage Therapists. 'Say No! To Neck & Shoulder Pain' is an info-book, work-book guide that shows you how to log your activities and pain levels. It teaches you to be in control and find your own pain triggers. Why suffer in silence and be sentenced to a life full of pain killers? Take control and use this new book to help yourself recover and lead a fulfilling life again.

Say No! To Neck & Shoulder Pain
Our latest book came in to fruition because we have many clients with neck and shoulder pain. We found ourselves repeating the same advice and giving the same information to our clients about dealing with and managing their sore neck and shoulders. In the end, we decided to put all the relevant information that was needed in to one guide. It is in a info-book/work-book format, succinct and easy to read. With no frills and no excess information.
Neck pain can be excruciating. It can be debilitating and it can stop you getting on with your daily life. Is your life impacted by awful headaches, neck stiffness, a lack of mobility, an inability to turn to look over your shoulder, tightness creeping on to the surrounding muscles and structures, are sports activities becoming too difficult to embark upon, do you get migraines, are you having days off from work, are you fed up of being in too much upper body pain to socialise, do you have difficulty sleeping due to neck pain? We know what it is like to suffer from chronic neck pain. We also know that this need not be the case. It was not until we became an experienced Sports Massage Therapist, that we started to understand that there are many things that we can all adjust, modify and counter in our daily lives that can help us to become and remain pain free.
Too many times, we see clients in our busy Sports Massage Clinic at the end of their tether with their neck and shoulder pain. They often have severe headaches and some believe they have migraines. They think that this pain will be with them forever. Some believe that they will need to be on pain killers for the rest of their lives. We can honestly say that this does not need to be the case. Find out what can be making your pain symptoms exacerbate and what you can do about it to make it stop. It really does not have to be this way for you.
This new book will help you to find the causes of your particular neck pain. It will give you the tools to help you get rid of, change and manage situations that make you have pain. It will give you the simple exercises that you require to help you ease out your neck and shoulder muscles. It will teach you how to reintroduce activities in a way that prevents them from impacting your health. You will become your own neck pain expert and be in charge of your own well-being.
