“Announcing The New ‘Back Pain & Sciatica Workshop’ In Lacey That’ll Show You Precisely What To Do, To Put An End To Low Back Pain & Sciatica, For GOOD…”

If you or a loved one suffer from chronic back pain then attending this Workshop may be the most important thing you do this year. It may unlock mystery of your back pain. It can show you a way to get back to the life you deserve… A life where you can sleep at night without tossing and turning. Hoping to find one position where the pain stops. One where you can wake up in the morning and not take 20 minutes to get out of bed. Followed by another 20 minutes to put on your socks and shoes. A life where you can pick up and play with your kids or grandkids without worrying when your back is going to “go out” and leave you crippled on the floor. A life where you can do and enjoy all the things you see so many enjoying. Things you want to do but your bad back has kept you sidelined. …Basically, a life without the curse of back pain. If You Feel Let Down, Disappointed, And Even Skeptical About What can Be Done To Help You, Then Read On… My name is Jennifer Penrose, Lacey’s leading back pain specialist. I have been helping people live with much less back pain for more than a decade now. And what we know now is that so many people are confused by the advice they’ve previously been given. They’re unsure about why it didn’t work out. Perhaps even skeptical about their… Read More

Back Pain: Why You Need To Drink More Water To Help Relieve It

Quick question: How much water have you drank today? For most people, the answer would be “not enough”. From everything we drink and swim in, to the ice that reduces swelling, it is all around us (and even in us). As a matter of fact – it basically is us! Water makes up around two thirds of who we are, and influences every single process in our body. This probably explains why we feel a lot better when we drink enough of it. Now, you might be aware of the many ‘tips and tricks’ that are out there on “how to avoid a bad back”, and “how to relieve pain” – but have you ever heard of drinking more water? My guess is you haven’t! I get that it might sound ‘too simple’ to make a difference, but dehydration really can be one of the culprits of back pain, and one of the reasons why it stays around for longer than it needs to. Let me explain… I know you already know that water affects every organ and cell in your body, but it also plays an enormous role in the health of your back and spine. In between each section of the spine (the vertebrae) lies a disc – these are mainly made up of water. During the day when we’re standing up, they slowly become dehydrated, then at night when we’re laying down, they rehydrate themselves again (so long as there is ENOUGH water in the body!). Here’s Where Water Comes Into Play… Read More

What to do about that aching pain in my neck and shoulders?

Most of the time the ache in our neck and shoulders is from overuse of those muscles. Are you sitting up with good posture at your computer? Do you carry your bag repeatedly on one side with considerable weight in it? Do you use the "arm rests" on your chair to rest your arms and decrease the tension in your neck and shoulders? Is the monitor at the right height so you are not leaning forward or bending your neck too far down? All of those posture issues can create neck and shoulder pain. Read More
