6 Easy Ways to STOP Pain Now

Today I want to share with you my own little “pain” story and give you the simple strategies I used to get rid of it within just a few days.

I just recently got back from a wonderful
Weekend in San Diego celebrating my 25th anniversary with my husband.

It was glorious and we spent a lot of time sight seeing and doing outdoor stuff!

We also threw in some workouts too since we both love to work out.

Now my old knee issues have flared up which does happen from time to time…

Read my interesting knee story at the link below:

The first thing I did, as soon as I got home, was go right to Jesse Cannone’s The 7 Day Back Pain Cure book…

(I have 1 copy at home and Jim (my husband) has another copy at work in case I need to call him to look something up)!

You may think it’s a bit strange that I would go to a book on back pain when it was my knees (especially the right one) that were in pain, but I use Jesse’s book as a reference for any and all body aches and pains.

Yes, you read that correctly. Jesse gives these books away for free, and I highly recommend you keep 1 or even better, 2 copies, handy so you have it available whenever pain strikes.

The only thing you pay is for shipping.

I think that’s a pretty fair deal, considering it’s one of the most valuable books I own, and he gives it away at absolutely no cost.

With Jesse’s permission, today I’m going to share with you the 6 super simple strategies he gives in Chapter 12 that helped me get a handle on my nagging pain.

Tip #1 Use your body symmetrically

Most of us have a dominant side, so, of course, we tend to use that side most often. What we don’t realize is how badly that will throw our bodies out of alignment. Using 1 side repeatedly will strengthen some muscle while leaving other underdeveloped and weak.

For me, I almost always do and carry everything on my right side. My purse, luggage, everything.

My solution: I focused on stretching the muscles of my right lower body and was extremely mindful to either carry my purse on the left side, or switch back and forth.

Even better, when I travel, I will use a small light weight backpack instead of a purse when out sight seeing or walking around.

Tip #2 Make your work area posture friendly

Here is something I knew I needed to change, but until I was in pain, I kept pushing it off for another day.

If your work day is anything like mine, you sit in front of a computer for several hours each day.

Even as I am writing this, I notice myself slowly falling into a slouched position. Tightening up my neck in concentration etc. It is so important that your computer screen is adjusted to the right height and that you get a quality chair or even an exercise ball to sit on.

My solution: This may vary from person to person. As a blind person, the level of the computer screen is not relevant…

However, for most people, the first thing you should do is ensure that your computer screen is at the right height.

If you are looking down all day, you are signing yourself for some guaranteed neck pain, which can sometimes lead to back pain.

The most important thing I do is to get up out of the computer chair ever 15 to 30 minutes and move around, even do some quick calisthenics.

Next, I brought an exercise ball into my office and I alternate sitting in my office chair and sitting on the exercise ball throughout the day. Many offices now encourage employees to do this, so don’t be afraid to ask if you can bring in an exercise ball to use while you work.

Tip #3 Use a Telephone Headset

Picture this: I’m chopping veggies to prepare dinner with the phone jammed up between my neck and shoulder while I talk with clients or one of my 4 sisters.

You would think I was trying to create pain on purpose! With all the fancy and inexpensive head sets on the market today, there is no excuse for this.

My solution: I purchased an inexpensive head set for my cell phone and I use speaker phone when I use my land line at home. The speaker phone has also helped me to free my hands more and I can multi task while I catch up with my sister on the phone.

Tip #4 Make your car seat posture friendly

Okay, again, I don’t think they let blind people have driver’s licenses. But, as a passenger, I need to have a back friendly sitting environment, right?

My solution: I inclined the seat and brought a rolled up towel into the car for my lower back. The rolled up towel helps ensure I am always sitting with good posture while I enjoy my husband driving us to places like San Diego!

If you are someone who drives a good bit throughout the day, this is an absolute must!

Tip #5 Use Posture support devices

This does not need to be something expensive or complicated. The best example of a support device is any small pillow you can use to help you sit with a natural arch in your lower back.

My solution: I use one of the small throw pillows from our sofa (it’s a rectangle that’s about 12 inches in length and 6 inches in height) and place it right at my lower back in situations where I’ll be sitting for more than 10 minutes at a time. This is an incredibly simple strategy for those who sit in an office chair all day and tend to slouch at any point during the day.

Tip #6 (For Women) Limit the use and height of high heels

Ladies, I know. Some of the cutest shoes are the ones that resemble walking on stilts.

Trust me, when you’re petite like me at 5 feet 3 like I am, high heels are your friend. This was definitely a huge contributor to my pain after wearing some pretty mega heels in San Diego…

When I’m at home at the computer, or off shopping, it’s usually flip flops or sneakers for me, so wearing heels for 3 days definitely threw my body out of alignment.

My solution: Realistically I’m not throwing away my favorite heels, so I pick and choose when and where I wear them.

If I know there is going to be a lot of walking, I stick to flats or sneakers.

Ladies, the good news is there are so many pairs of beautiful flat shoes available now that high heels are no longer necessary even for the fanciest occasions.

Listen, if you are someone who is currently suffering from any type of shoulder, neck, hip, knee, back, or even fibromyalgia pain, I want you to do 2 very important things:

1.Take Jesse Cannone’s tips above very seriously and see how you can implement each one into your life.
2.Get your own copy (even better, get 2) of Jesse’s book, The 7-Day Back Pain Cure, completely Free (just cover the shipping and handling) and keep this book handy at home so you will know how to easily handle any body aches and pains that may come your way.
