Here it is. I am attaching this month’s copy of What Doctor’s Don’t Tell You in which I wrote the cover story regarding the unnecessary over usage of total hip replacements. For those that don’t know this magazine is produced in the UK and is sold in 20 countries and translated into 14 languages. The editor, Lynne McTaggert has used the Yass method to resolve her lower back pain which she highlighted in the May 2016 issue https://www.wddty.com/magazine/2016/august/the-true-cause-of-back-pain-1.html . I have since written 3 articles for the magazine which has brought me a more global audience. In this article I provide the theoretical, clinical and scientific evidence as to why the diagnosis of bone-on-bone for the hip joint is in almost every case baseless and invalid. If you read the article you will come to the same conclusion, I promise you.
What you need to understand is that those that you seek care from have a very specialized education and training. They are taught what a joint should look like and what is looks like when deterioration has occurred. They simply are trained to make the worn joint look like the original one. Their ability to associate pain in the region to anything other than the joint is simply non existent. If you get 3 opinions and think you are actually getting 3 separate opinions you are simply not being honest with yourself. You are actually getting 3 of the same opinion because that is what these people are trained to know and do.
If you have any hope of resolving your pain, you need to understand what pain is, why it is elicited and how to identify the tissue in distress eliciting it. The Yass method is not another treatment method. It is the only logically based, empirically proven method to diagnose the cause of pain meaning it identifies the tissue in distress eliciting the very symptoms being experienced. It does not through the interpretation of the symptoms the body is providing. Since tissues provide specific symptoms, understanding the symptoms allows you to identify the correct tissue. How many of you have been told the cause of your hip region pain is arthritis, bone-on-bone, a labral tear or bursitis? And yet how many of you can confidently tell me you know where you hip joint is (spoiler alert! you will learn where it is in this article).
If you have had a hip replacement and still have pain and have already had a revision or are being told you need a revision to correct the pain that the first surgery was supposed to correct, do you want to trust the same person that told you the first surgery was going to fix your pain and you would be dancing in just weeks? Start to think more logically. The first surgery didn’t work because the structural element of the joint you were told was causing the pain wasn’t. If it were and it were corrected it would have to elicit the emergency signal of pain, right? Chronic pain exists for one reason; MISDIAGNOSIS!!! The wrong tissue is identified and treated while the original tissue in distress remains in distress. If a muscle around the hip region were strained and elicited your pain, how would it be diagnosed? It won’t show up on a diagnostic test and certainly the medical specialists you seek a diagnosis from cannot identify this. Can you see the makings of chronic pain unfolding before your eyes?
The Yass Method can identify all tissues as the cause of pain because it interprets the symptoms of tissues. In more than 98% of cases I have treated the tissue in distress was muscle. If you having difficulty performing activity and the symptoms you experience are brought on or worsened by this activity, the tissue you seek for resolution is muscle.
Read the article below. If after, you acknowledge everything I am saying is right, reach out and end your pain and return to a fully functional life. You can contact me by email at firstname.lastname@example.org. I perform both in-person treatment and Skype based.
Don’t live with chronic pain any longer because the medical system is unwilling to acknowledge they are simply incapable of getting the proper diagnosis. You pain in most cases is fitness based; not medical.
