Free Book Review:
A Revolutionary Method for Stopping Chronic Pain
by Pete Egoscue with Roger Gittines
Does your back hurt? Your knees? Your feet? If you have any sort of musculoskeletal (bone or muscle) pain, this book is a miracle. I have had terrible pain in my feet and left knee for years. After doing the exercises in this book for only a short time, I can do things I haven't done in years!
Why do these exercises work?
Modern people don't get enough exercise. We develop muscle imbalances as a result. When we do exercise, the few muscles we use regularly sitting at a desk, driving a car, etc. have to take over for the ones that have shrunk or atrophied. That leaves us vulnerable. All it takes is the smallest fall or accident, and we're in a lot of pain. This is because using the wrong muscles to do things pushes your body out of position. It's also probably why different people get arthritis in different places. Those joints are under more stress.
What do I have to do?
All you need is a few special stretching and isometric exercises a day to wake up the right muscles and change the way you move. Then you can get your life back.
I have been to orthopedists, podiatrists, and physical therapists. None of them really helped me. All of them suggested highly priced orthotics and/or surgery. Even the physical therapist wanted to sell me an electrical stimulation device. Maybe it's just because curing people with 5-10 minutes worth of exercises a day is just too easy and cheap to be profitable. Again, I am not a physician, and I can't guarantee anything, but if there's any chance this book can stop a lifetime's worth of pain and expensive treatments for you, too, it's certainly worth it. I can't thank the author enough.
