What People Think about "Pain Free: A Revolutionary Method for Stopping Chronic Pain"

While raising my own daughters, I taught Physical Education in a private school.....(Phys. It was the first time in my life that I actually 'loved' the books we were reading. Truth is, anyone who studies Kinesiology loves 'the human body' and MOVING! but one of 'the ladies' from my water class bought Paul and I this book. Truthfully ....there is not much new in this book that I don't already know ( spine prevention has been a pet peeve of mine - and the exercises I do and show others are like breathing air to me - simple - easy - but important. Spine prevention programs ought to be taught to children before they are allowed to participate in sports. I always taught my kids. I've read 'many' books of this subject ... to see how most people feel about this book...

I skipped straight to the exercises at the end of the book, and found my fasciitis gradually improving. First of all, I've yet to encounter a fitness/health book that isn't framed with an evangelical my-way-or-the-highway language, and Pain Free is no exception. Our species has been around for a few million years, and we're still figuring things out.

Rather remarkable for severe, disabling Myofascial Pain, Chronic Fatigue, and Sleep Disorders. If you've got Fibromyalgia or related chronic pain conditions, try this method! It's been a while since I read it, honestly, and am due for a re-read, but I will say that the 'Pain Free' book, and especially the two Pain Free DVDs are the one thing I tell any of my friends suffering with chronic pain that they cannot live without. I'm not as diligent as I should be in applying Egoscue's methods, and I have a very severe disabling pain condition. I've read a good 100 titles on chronic pain/disability/wellness over my nine year struggle with severe myofascial pain and fatigue... Here is my review on the Pain Free DVDs and a link to grab them at Amazon.

He gives simple exercise to retrain body parts that are not performing their primary function properly, or performing for muscles that aren't functioning. The exercises almost seem too simple to help. I've been twirling my foot to strengthen my ankle, but that alone has not helped me to run.

I read about this book in 4 Hour Body By Tim Ferris. Because I have tried Yoga on my own reading books and that did not help me the way these poses helped. I definitely recomend this method to people suffering from cronic pain, postural imbalance etc and urge them to at least give it a try and see if it helps.

I would recommend this book to anyone whose life has been limited (even in small ways, which can lead to big ways) by musculoskeletal pain.

It has greatly helped me recover from disabling plantar fascitis, and I've also used it in coping with and lessening knee pain and lower back problems.

Doing my best to not give a spoiler, but instead provoke you to pick up this book: The author believes that our bodies are built to last forever, but we don't use them the right way which leads to pain. Also the same exercises are used for multiple pain locations which is just fascinating, but again makes sense!

If you are suffering from pain, YOU NEED THIS BOOK! You are worth every minute of each E-cise.
