Are you struggling with chronic pain? Have you tried everything but nothing has worked? Are you afraid that surgery is the only hope?

Over one billion people across the globe suffer needlessly every day from chronic pain. The medical model we’ve relied on to fix our pain isn’t working. If you want another answer for pain relief besides a serious surgery or taking pain medications, then The Pain Cure RX is your long awaited solution in living pain-free for good!

The suffering isn’t limited to chronic pain. There are many emotions and beliefs that befall those who suffer from chronic pain, including:

  • Loss of hope for a solution
  • Feel stuck in living with pain
  • Endless seeking for a solution but nothing works
  • Feeling unworthy of pain relief or somehow deserving of pain, especially if emotions of injury became stuck during trauma
  • Helplessness because the pain has affected everything in your life
  • A sense of fear: Fear of having to live with this pain and fear of what will come if pain is eliminated.

After living with chronic pain for so long, it’s hard to imagine or even believe that there is hope for a solution. You may feel like you are stuck with the emotional, physical and mental effects of pain. Like many sufferers, you have relied upon the medical model for their answers…until now. You don’t have to suffer any longer. You can resume living a life that is active and pain free and Dr. Yass can show you how.

The Pain Cure RX, by Dr. Mitchell Yass, presents an alternative model of treatment known as the Yass Method, that can resolve pain quickly and effectively without surgery or medication.

The Yass Method, developed through Dr. Yass’ work with more than 14,000 patients, focuses on finding the true source of the pain and then using simple exercises that strengthen and balance weak areas for lifelong relief.

If you suffer from chronic pain, you want a real solution that’s easy and inexpensive and one that actually works long-term. You long for the ability to experience the activities you once enjoyed before the pain took over. And you want proof that this solution will work for your pain.

How Dr. Yass Developed his Proven Yass Method

Dr. Yass has spent the past 20 years developing his method of diagnosing and treating the cause, not the symptom, of pain and believes that this is the future of pain relief. He is currently treating patients in Florida utilizing his unique method, known as the Yass Method, is the author of The Pain Cure RX, Overpowering Pain, and was host of the radio show Stop the Pain; I Want My Life Back. He has written articles for various publications including Advance for Physical Therapists and PT Assistants, Bottom Line Health, and, and he has been featured on numerous radio shows.

PBS Special: The Pain Prescription

THE PAIN PRESCRIPTION is a 60-minute public television pledge special that shows viewers exactly why they no longer need to suffer from chronic pain and some of the simple ways to resolve pain. Dr. Yass is a powerful advocate for a new way to look at chronic pain—a way that is non-invasive. In about 90 percent of cases, the cause is actually a muscular weakness or imbalance—a condition that’s easy to treat on your own. The Yass Method®, developed through his work with more than 10,000 patients, focuses on finding the true source of the pain and then using simple exercises to find lifelong relief.

If you’ve been to a medical professional to treat your pain, you’ve probably been told that one of the conditions listed below is the cause of your pain—but this may or may not be true:

  • Frozen Shoulder
  • Arthritis/Osteoarthritis at the knee, shoulder, hip
  • Bulging Disc (neck, mid-back, lower back)
  • Bursitis (shoulder, hip)
  • Compression Fracture (neck, mid-back, lower back)
  • Fracture knee, shoulder, hip
  • Herniated disc (neck, mid-back, lower back)
  • Impingement Syndrome (shoulder)
  • Labral Tear (hip, shoulder)
  • Ligament Tear (knee)
  • Meniscal Tear (knee)
  • Necrosis of the Femoral Head (hip)
  • Nerve Root Impingement/Pinched Nerve (Neck, Mid-back, lower back)
  • Patellofemoral Syndrome/Chondromalacia Patellae (knee)
  • Pelvic Fracture (gluteal region)
  • Rotator Cuff Tear (shoulder)
  • Ruptured Disc (neck, mid-back, lower back)
  • Scoliosis (mid-back, lower back)
  • SI Joint Dysfunction (gluteal region)
  • Spinal Fracture (gluteal region)
  • Spondylolisthesis (neck, lower back)
  • Spondylosis (neck, lower back)
  • Stenosis (neck, mid-back, lower back)

Many of the people Dr. Yass has treated came to him as a last resort before surgery or as a follow-up after surgery that didn’t resolve their pain. Many of them had been told that they would have to manage their pain with drugs for the rest of their lives, or, worse, that there was nothing left to try; they would simply have to live with the pain. This revolutionary book shows that, in most cases, this simply isn’t true—and empowers you to create a pain-free life. 

If you’ve been suffering from chronic pain, you know how it can destroy your life. You can’t work, you can’t parent, you can’t have a normal life. But there’s absolutely no reason you need to suffer physically, emotionally, and financially because of our faulty medical system. There is freedom from pain. You just have to know where to look and when to question what you’ve been told. 

Common Types of Pain Treated by the Yass Method

  • Neck
  • Mid-Back
  • Lower Back

“I have referred many patients to Mitchell Yass. His diagnostic and therapeutic abilities have shown him to be a man able to resolve complaints of pain at all areas of the body including the neck and lower back. I was pleased to find out that Mitchell wrote a book describing the idea that most pain is caused by muscular weakness and imbalance. I am in complete agreement with this idea and therefore I wholeheartedly endorse his book.”
MARK STERLING, MD, FAAPMR, Chairman, Department of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation, St. Catherine of Sienna Medical Center, Smithtown, NY

Why You Should Try the Yass Method

Most people suffer from pain because in trying to perform their daily activities all the muscles responsible for performing the activities are not strong enough to do so. This leads to the muscles straining and emitting pain. It can cause the muscles to weaken or become unbalanced and create a misalignment of joint surfaces in joints which create pain at the joint. The key is that for each person, their functional activity loads are different so it is a question of the relationship between the strengths of the muscles of the person versus the strength requirements of the activities being performed. Due to less surface area taking the full forces through the joints, this can lead to deterioration of the structural components. So arthritis, stenosis, herniated discs and meniscal tears are in fact, in most cases, the result of muscle weakness or imbalance.

The flaw in diagnostics resulted when these structural variations were found and were thought to be the cause of pain when in fact they were degenerative in nature and not emitting pain while it was the muscle weakness or imbalance creating the pain. The Yass method uses the exact system that the body has designed to create awareness of the cause of pain. It provides a set of symptoms which when interpreted tells you which tissue is the cause of the pain. The most common tissues associated with pain in the extremities, neck and back are muscle, nerve and bone. Each one of these presents with specific symptoms that can be interpreted to tell which tissue is creating the pain. Once the source of pain is determined, then you work the muscles to strengthen and increase flexibility.

How Long Will the Yass Method Take to End My Pain?

In 90 to 95 percent of the cases where doctors had identified a structural problem as the cause of pain, Dr. Yass found something completely different. What he discovered as he worked with people was that most of the pain they experienced actually came from muscular weakness or imbalance rather than structural problems.

Using the simple tests and techniques in The Pain Cure RX, you’ll be able to determine whether your pain stems from a muscular or structural issue. If it is structural, surgery is the proper course of action. More likely, however, you’ll discover that the pain is caused by a muscular issue. The length of time it takes to eliminate muscular issues will depend on the individual and how well they follow the step-by-step instructions in this book. You’ve been living with pain for years. Now you can experience relief in as little as two weeks when you follow the Yass Method as outlined in Dr. Yass’ book, The Pain Cure RX.

Everybody has the right to live without pain.

What people are saying about the Yass Method

“After 10 years of suffering with pain in my right hip area, I am now pain free. I went to half a dozen chiropractors seeking relief and I only felt worse. But Mitchell Yass identified the source of my pain and within a few minutes I was exercising to strengthen the appropriate muscles. What a revelation!”
Health Reporter, Cablevision News 12.
“Before coming to Mitchell Yass, I wasn't able to walk or stand upright and had back pain for more than 13 years. I now can walk and stand up straight without back pain. I have muscle I never knew I had! I've learned to value of exercise.”
“I went to Mitchell Yass for severe leg pain. I could no longer even think about playing the sport I love- racquetball. I had been to an Orthopedic MD, Neurologist and Chiropractor. None of them could help to relieve the pain. The Orthopedic Doctor thought the pain was due to the herniated discs that were in my MRI. The neurologist said that I had nerve damage in my leg and referred me to a Neurosurgeon. I went to see Mitchell Yass instead. He reviewed my MRI and examined me. He told me the pain had nothing to do with my discs or nerve damage. He was right! He resolved the pain and had me playing racquetball in four weeks. He is truly a ``miracle man.”
“When I came to Mitchell Yass, I couldn't even tie my shoe due to lower back pain. Now I am able to play golf and other activities due to the resolution of lower back pain achieved with physical therapy and strength gains I have made with personal training. I have achieved such high level of fitness that at my last stress test, my doctor had to terminate the test because they couldn't raise my heart rate enough to reach a maximal rate on the treadmill. I have truly learned the lesson, Strength = Function.”
