I managed to work through the pain and disability to finish a 30 year nursing career, but I have lived with ever increasing pain and loss of motion since I retired. I have often felt as if I had no reason to continue living, since I've not found much of any way to reduce the pain. So this book, with so much extremely simple and obvious information has hit me like a ton of bricks. I've been doing it all wrong for so many years.
Just to illustrate, the last few years I've had increasing pain in my shoulders and arms, especially at night. I've tried every medication, rub, hot showers before bed, and endless attempts to arrange the pillows and bedclothes to reduce the discomfort so I could sleep. Along with other pain and problems, sleep became a very iffy thing and the accumulated sleep deprivation has been devastating.
So, one of the first things I discovered in this book was the vicious cycle of pain, poor posture, and poor overall body alignment. I discovered I was walking hunched over, throwing my shoulders forward when I sat and worked, and shuffling around like I was a sick ape. Dumb.
Three days after getting the book, doing the exercises and working hard to remember to stand up straight and walk straight... very little pain in those arms and shoulders - and NONE in the back where the old injury had plagued me for more than 50 years. And each time I feel the pain returning... I look at how I'm standing or sitting and correct it. The pain is gone quickly. As I retrain myself to stand, walk and sit correctly, I am confident the pain will be gone and never return.
Get this book, then follow the simple exercises. You'll be throwing away your pills and special appliances soon.
After suffering weeks of pain, while lying on the floor, my orthopaedic doctors authorized epidural shots to relieve the pain.
Each of them strongly recommended that I purchase, read, and followup with the exercises in 'The Egoscue Method of Health Through Motion'.
The work is terrific in its clear, concise descriptions, and, explanations, as to the causes of lower back discomfort, and how to alleviate it.
We now have several of our pitchers who have also purchased the book and are executing 'the Method'; much to their back's relief.
Once again I am catching 2 bullpen sessions per week, and, a game on Saturday, and one on Sunday.
