Pain help Book

The Pain Cure
by Dharma Singh Khalsa , MD with Cameron Stauth
The proven Medical Program that helps end your Chronic Pain

What i read so far is about different levels of chronic pain and how it creates it's own cycle in the brain, spasms, referred pain- like headaches,TMJ, sinus problems ect.

Pg 33- "chronic pain syndrome is characterized by physical inactivity, inadequet sleep, depression, poor nutrition, fear, anxiety, reliance on medications, and mental lethargy...."these traits are almost certain to lock in- and amplify- pain signals that have become engraved upon the nervous system."

She advocates nutritional therapy, physical therapy, medication changes{ to natural,homeopathic and herbs}and mental and spiritual pain control

Default nerve glides & info

http://www.handhealthresources.com/S.../Exercises.htm

see the link for the photos & explore the whole site.

from the link -
[If you are experiencing nerve symptoms, these exercises to glide (or slide, or pump) the nerves are critical. In fact, in one study, the chances of avoiding surgery improved dramatically when nerve glides were added to the therapy program.

It is very important not to over-stretch the nerve while exercising or you will create symptoms. Perform these exercises at a quiet time when you can pay close attention to the signals from your body. Feeling some tension is good but do not stretch to the point that you feel pain or numbness. You may feel tension anywhere along the nerve pathway, sometimes at quite a distance from the site of pain. I've had clients feel tension in their arms, shoulders, neck, even chest and back!

I teach clients to gently "pump" the nerve so that it is carefully teased out of adhesions. Some therapists instruct their clients in a sustained hold of 10 seconds. Try it both ways and see which feels better for you.
* Median Nerve Glide (the carpal tunnel nerve)


o Sweep your arm out to the side until it is slightly behind you, palm facing forward, elbow gently straight
o Pull your wrist back until you feel a gently tension somewhere in the arm
o Relax the wrist forward until tension is relieved
o Repeat 10 times


o Ease the tension on the wrist to about half
o Holding this position, gently raise your arm until you feel tension (stay below shoulder height)
o Lower the arm until tension is relieved
o Repeat 10 times


o Ease the tension on the arm to about half
o Tilt your head (bring opposite ear towards opposite shoulder) until you feel tension
o Straighten the neck until tension is relieved
o Repeat 10 times



* Ulnar Nerve Glide (the funny bone nerve)


o Place your arm out to your side with the wrist pulled back as if you are saying "stop"
o Bring your fingers toward your ear as if to cup the ear with the palm, fingers pointing to the shoulder. Stop when you feel a gentle tension.
o Bring your hand back out to the side until tension is relieved
o Repeat 10 times.

As an alternative:
o Hold your arm out to the side, elbow straight, fingers gently curved but not in a fist
o Rotate your arm fully until the palm is up.
o Gently tilt your head (bring opposite ear towards opposite shoulder) until you feel tension
o Straighten the neck until tension is relieved
o Repeat 10 times


* Radial Nerve Glide (the back of the hand nerve)
o Place your hand at your side with the back of the hand facing forward
o Push your shoulder down towards the floor (the movement comes from the shoulder, do not lean)
o Bend your wrist toward the palm until you are in the "waiter's tip" position (as if you are a waiter unobtrusively taking a tip)
o Move your arm back behind you and up at a slight angle to the side until you feel tension
o If you feel as if you need more stretch, gently tilt your head (bring oppositie ear towards opposite shoulder) until you feel tension
o Straight the head or move the arm back down until tension is relieved
o Repeat 10 times



These nerve glides deserve a repeat of the previous cautions. Stretch only until you feel a gentle tension. Avoid pain. Perform in a quiet environment and listen carefully to your body's feedback while performing.]

OK now I'm not so frustrated cause I found something about it!
yeah!!!
