Publisher's Summary

Chronic pain has become an international epidemic - an estimated one billion people across the globe suffer every day. And, what Dr. Mitchell Yass has found over his 20-year career is that many of these people suffer needlessly. While the current medical model for treating pain isn't helping, there is hope - and that's what this program is about.
In The Pain Cure Rx, Dr. Mitchell Yass presents the Yass Method, an alternative model of treatment that can resolve pain quickly and effectively without surgery or medication. While working with more than 14,000 patients, Dr. Yass realized that many cases of chronic pain are the result of misdiagnosis and thus improper treatment. In the medical community today, most chronic pain is attributed to a structural problem, such as a herniated disc, stenosis, a meniscal tear, or arthritis. But Dr. Yass has found that in about 90 percent of these cases, the cause is actually a muscular weakness or imbalance - a condition that's easy to treat on your own with very little equipment. The Yass Method focuses on getting the proper diagnosis - finding the true source of the pain - and then using simple exercises to find lifelong relief.
In this recording, Dr. Yass looks at the most common areas where people experience pain - the neck, low back, mid-back, gluteal region, knee, shoulder, and hip - and lays out simple tests that examine things like range of motion, flexibility, walking patterns, and posture that listeners can do in the comfort of their own homes. He teaches them how to use this information, along with an analysis of their symptoms, to identify if their pain is in fact muscular rather than structural. If it is structural, they can choose surgery, knowing that the outcome will likely be good. But if the pain is muscular, they can use the easy, step-by-step exercises and routines referenced in this program - and shown in videos on his website - to get the pain resolution they're searching for.

Very informative and put well together.

I highly enjoyed listening to this book. It provided great explanations of different diagnosis and how to treat them. I recommend listening to it. It is a good refresher for current practitioners and great start for patients who prefer to fix their own issues by themselves.
