Everyday i encounter more and more people who have been left suffering with chronic pain for no reason other then the ineptness of a system unwilling to acknowledge that they are promoting a baseless method of diagnosing the cause of pain. As a result the number of people suffering with chronic pain continues to rise and the time frame that people are suffering continues to lengthen almost endlessly. It is devestating to see people completely giving up on their lives. They have accepted a fate taht they will never live without pain again. Relationships are lost. Jobs can not longer be maintained. Addiction to prescription pain medication becomes the primary inhibitor to a normal life superceding the pain that it was supposed to be treating. Hopelessness becomes common place. This is where more than a third of the American population find themselves and roughly 1 billion people in the world. Everybody feels alone in their sense that their is no answer to their pain. Nobody realizes that it is not an individual issue; it is in fact a systemic failure. The very way that each person enters the medical establishment through the use of the MRI condemns more than 90% of people to getting a wrong diagnosis. This is why all the treatement, medications, procedures and surgeries don’t work.
Put simply. the wrong tissue was identified and therefore the wrong tissue is being treated. Pain is an indication of a tissue in distress. It is the attempt of the distress tissue to create conscious awareness of its distress so an intervention can be performed to resolve the distress of the tissue. Once the distress is resolved, the tissue no longer has to emit the signal and pain ceases. Each tissue elicits a specific symptom. This goes for bone, nerve and muscle. The only way to truly identify the tissue in distress is to interpret the symptoms being experienced. The MRI has circumvented this most basic of ideals about pain. The structural variations found such as herniated discs, stenosis, arthritis and pinched nerves have nothing to do with the symptoms being experienced. They are slow and progressive in nature and take years if not decades to develop. They existed way before your pain began but since the MRI is taken at the time you are experiencing pain the premise is created that the structural variation is the cause of the pain. If you had taken an MRI a year before your pain began, the results would have been identical. You have been programmed to believe that structural variations are more like cancer then wrinkles. The mere identication of the structural variation requires treatment. This is pure insanity. These structural variations are exactly like wrinkles. Very slow in their progression but creating no symptom and requiring no intervention. You are not even aware that studies show that over the age of 60, 90% of people with no back pain are found to have bulging or degenerative discs. How can these structural variations be the cause of pain when 90% of people with no pain have them.
The most horrifying aspect of this debacle is the fact that muscular causes of pain are never identified. A muscle in spasm at the lower back will never be identified. A strained muscle at the shoulder/ shoulder blade complex leading to shoulder pain will never be identified. A muscle imbalance of the muscles that attach to the knee leading to knee pain will never show up. A strained muscle leading to groin pain will never show up. A muscle referring symptoms to another location like a rotator cuff muscle creating altererd sensation in the hand will never show up. A muscle impinging on a nerve that refers a symptom will never show up. This is the real cause of sciatica.
The reality is that you are in chronic pain for one reason. The right tissue responsible for your symptoms is never being identified. There is no other possible solution for this to happen. The medical establishment will never change. Too much invested in keeping the system as is and the chance of changing the status quo is very difficult. So each individual will have to make up their mind whether they want to continue with things as is and believe that the third, fourth or fifth surgery will somehow create a different result then the first couple of surgeries. You will have decide whether the use of cortisone, epidural nerve blocks, prescription pain medication, rhizotomy or radiofrequency ablation, none of which will ever resolve the cause of your pain and will only keep you in pain unendingly is the path you want to continue on. There is a real and clear choice to be made. The Yass method denounces the use of diagnostic tests and would have them abolished as the primary method of diagnosing the cause of pain. It establishes cause by use of interpreting the body’s presentation of symptoms to identify the correct tissue in distress actually emitting the symptoms being experienced. In more than 95% of cases the cause is muscular and with the proper prescriptive progressive resistance exercise routine, the pain can be resolved and function fully regained.
It is your choice to resolve your pain, regain your function and reclaim your life. The only way to do so is to choose the Yass method. If you want more information about the Yass method you can go to my website at www.mitchellyass.com, my youtube page at dr. mitchell yasss, or Facebook page at Dr. Mitchell Yass. You can get treatment at my office in St Augustine, Florida and can get a Skype computer evaluation and treatment if getting to the office is too difficult. I will be in Manhattan, New York the week of April 24-28th, Monday thru Friday if you are in the area and would like to get treated through the Yass method. If you would like to contact me regarding making an appointment or have questions you would like answered you can contact me at my email address: firstname.lastname@example.org.
