You can’t be a BOGO pain relief shopper.
I wanted to share a quick story of a mistake I made for over 4 years and I am saddened to see so many so-called back pain guru’s still trying to sell people on crap solutions to their pain. If you see this RUN. Run as fast as you can the other way. I’ll tell you exactly how to tell whether your coach is legit or not.
I know there are some people on here that think F4BP.com is some corporate website that dishes out content to pitch their local services or contraption.
I am actually the opposite.
I am a back pain sufferer who has found freedom from chronic pain and am constantly striving for ways to reach YOU, the sufferer in search of relief.
I love to catch up and read what other “pain relief providers” are doing and since back pain affects 80% or more of Americans there are LOTS of people trying to capitalize on that fact.
Pain relief will never be squeezable or found on a BOGO shelf at your local Publix. Whats sad is when you see if from what could be YOUR back pain coach.
I was surfing some back pain sources and I came across a website that talked a big game about beating back pain and how they had all the secrets. Knowing what it actually takes to beat back pain I am always curious as to what other people have to say.
I subscribed to this guys email list to receive a free download and guess what I got a day later.
That’s a BOGO add for freakin pain relief cream.
Which will do absolutely nothing to establish long-term relief. You might get a decent nights sleep with a bunch of this lathered over your sore spots but that’s about it.
What breaks my heart is this is the solution some LBP sufferers want.
Cheap and Easy.
I can’t stress this enough. Nothing sold in a bottle or squeezable tube for back pain is going to work.
Whether you have had a
- Vertebroplasty/ Kyphoplasty
or whatever else you may have had done.
It’s not just the squeezable relief that I’m talking about
Back to this back pain guru, I found. A couple emails later he sent me another add for the “most expensive back pain relief tool he owns”. Reading his sales page I was almost convinced that all the reviews and success stories of going from not being able to walk to kayaking and playing tennis ALL by using this one tool.
Can you take a stab at what you think it was?
It was an inversion table.
The only reason why I passionately hate people who try to sell back pain sufferers these is because the majority of them don’t understand that not all back pain suffers need to decompress their spine. Yes, it might help but it could actually make it worse. When buying something like this make sure you are buying it because you need it and not just because they say it’s for back pain.
The process of learning how to move pain-free and get your life back is the same.
Lets put it this way.
The ultimate goal for us is to desensitize our lumbar spines.
If I could only teach 3 things to anyone I come in contact with it would be these.
Breaking your own personal pain cycle: How you move and operate on a daily basis (as it pertains to movement)
Core Coordination: Don’t just do more ab exercises but learn to brace and breath while you move. It’s about learning to stabilize the spine in a good position while under stressful situations such as exercise or excessive movement. Remember, it’s not that you’re fragile, you just took too long to fix the issue and now you’re in pain.
Trust the Process: It took you a long time to dig this hole your in so you are going to have to be patient while you dig yourself out. I let my chronic pain rule my life for over 5 years. For the majority of those 5 years, I was doing more stuff to make it worse thinking I was making it better. I have spent another 4+ years fixing and learning how to fix the 3 things you read above.
When it comes to getting your own relief if you spend more time reading and researching then actually doing you are already so far behind. You have to start today and it starts with movement.
Don’t get sold another quick fix or pain relief cream that promises life-changing relief. Because once the cream wears off you’re faced with the same old pain. The marketers of these products are simply capitalizing off desperate people.
You WILL need to invest in your relief. Nothing will come for free but be sure to invest in what works.
What has been your experience? What has been the one thing you were sold that you used for your back pain? I bet I can beat it!
To your continued success,
