Facts to keep in mind when searching for pain relief.
1. Bones are important building blocks, but they can't do anything without the muscles that attach to them.
BONES only go where MUSCLES pull or hold them. Bones don’t move on their own-this is very important to understand. They are just anchors or leverage points that enable muscles to perform their jobs. Bones are important building blocks, but they can't do anything without the muscle that attach to them.
2. By tracing and releasing the muscles along the nerve pathway for your specific joint pain, you can often free yourself from joint pain.
MUSCLES only do what NERVES tell them to do – and we know exactly where those nerves are for each muscle. Every muscle in your body has a nerve pathway - a dermatome - that we can predictably trace back to its origin. By tracing and releasing the muscles along the nerve pathway for your specific joint pain, you can often free yourself from joint pain.
3. Only MUSCLES are dynamic enough to rapidly change the alignment of a joint in a positive and stable manner.
JOINTS are made up of bones, muscles, and soft-tissues like tendons, ligaments, and cartilage. Only MUSCLES are dynamic enough to rapidly change the alignment of a joint in a positive and stable manner... by releasing the inappropriate tension in the muscles that are negatively affecting your joint you can relieve your joint pain.
