For Anyone Struggling with Chronic Pain...

Get Started on the Road to Recovery And Discover the True Sources of Chronic Pain Using Six Simple Movements

Let’s face it. 

If you’re on this page, chances are good that this isn’t the first time you’ve tried to get a grip on whatever chronic pain you’re facing. 

Whether you’re frustrated by a nagging “tweak” that’s affecting your performance and well being…

Or you come home every day feeling stiff and “out of whack” from the hours spent sitting behind a desk…

Or the pain is so bad that you wonder if you’ll ever get to live a “normal” life after a world changing injury (like I experienced)…

You’ve TRIED to get relief. 

But no matter how much “This isn’t covered by insurance” money you fork over or how many hours you spend with different experts…

The relief you’re looking for is barely coming – if it’s even coming at all. 

When You’re Honest With Yourself, You Can Probably Admit that Your Current Approach IS NOT Working.

The experts you turn to mean well, and they’re genuinely doing the best they can. 

But their good intentions don’t change the way your body feels. 

Maybe you try to ignore the Rice Krispy style ‘snap, crackles, and pops’ and just push through the pain. 

Or shrug it off and tell the folks around you, “I’m fine.” 


But those 2AM breakdowns where you can’t sleep because your back feels like an elephant is standing on it…

… Or those workouts where you can’t lift the weight or run at the pace that used to feel so effortless?

That’s when it really starts to get to you. 

And with so many failed attempts and promising solutions that don’t pan out – it can start to feel like you’re the only person in the world with this unsolvable problem. 

Which means you have one of two options. 

Either accept that this is “just the way it is” and that chronic pain is your “new normal.” 

OR–– find a solution that gives you the lasting relief you’re after. 

Somehow, giving up and settling for a life filled with aches, pains, imbalance, or even “Do I need to go to the ER?” spasms doesn’t seem like much of an option at all. 

Which means… 

It’s Time to Finally Get Started On the Path to Ending Chronic Pain and Resolving Muscle Imbalances for GOOD.

When I broke my back in my early 20s after a brutal surfing accident (that very nearly left me paralyzed)….

I thought life as I knew it was over. 

Overnight, I went from a professional athlete training for the olympics to a functionally disabled 20-something with no prospects and no idea how to turn my life around. 

My journey to pain freedom was long and miserable… and I wouldn’t wish what I went through on anyone.

But there was one silver lining.

Because my pain forced me to get creative.

And hunt for unconventional solutions to (quite literally) get me back on my feet.

What I discovered after YEARS of trial and error and spending tens of thousands of dollars on experts and medical bills was this:

There IS a proven path to eliminating pain for good and feeling comfortable within your body!

But for this approach to work, you first need to understand how the body works.

Specifically…

To Create an Effective Solution to Any Type of Chronic Pain, You Need To Understand 3 Things

01.

The Source of Your Pain is Not Always the Symptom

Let me ask you a question…

What if the area that hurts isn’t the problem at all?

For years after my accident, I focused on fixing my back – because that’s what I’d broken (seemed pretty straightforward to me). 

But it wasn’t until a movement therapist – who I thought was an absolute QUACK at the time – helped me fix an imbalance in my left knee that I started to get relief. 

At the time it didn’t make any sense (how could my knee be one of the sources of my chronic back pain?)

But as I started to dive deeper, I realized this is actually the RULE, not the EXCEPTION. 

I was so focused on the pain in my back that I didn’t see how my legs were making my back hurt more and actually preventing me from healing for years.

I realized that, for most people, the area that hurts ISN’T the source of the problem. 

And after working with thousands of people, I realized that two people can have the EXACT same SYMPTOM… but the SOURCE of that symptom is wildly different.

One person will have back pain because the muscles in their hips aren’t firing correctly and they’re causing imbalances in the knees and ankles that impact the back. 

And another will have back pain because of a shoulder injury they experienced as a teenager that’s causing their upper body to overcompensate, twist, and shift off center to the side which puts excessive pressure on their spine with every movement. 

Chasing symptoms by focusing on just the area that hurts might get you temporary relief. 

But if you want to experience lasting change, you need to solve chronic pain at the SOURCE.

02.

You Need a System to Spot the “Hidden Pain Points”

Tell me if this has ever happened to you…

You walk into a room with a strong smell – good or bad – that almost knocks you off your feet. 

But after spending a few minutes in the room… you barely notice the smell at all? 

Well, your body reacts to pain in a very similar way. 

With enough time, your body starts to “normalize” pain. 

When you deal with the same nagging pain day in and day out, eventually your brain starts to adjust. 

And you no longer FEEL what’s really happening in your body. Because your brain and body have adapted to the pain.

Every student we’ve helped here at Pain Academy all had one thing in common…

Even though they were dealing with a specific pain point

… There was a BIG problem in their body that had become so normal they didn’t even know it existed. 

And it’s usually THAT problem which was at the core of their pain or discomfort.

03.

Lasting Relief Is Possible – But Only If You’re Addressing the Right Problems in the Right Sequence

Once you understand these first two points, there’s one final piece to the puzzle. 

And THIS is why most of the solutions out there aren’t as effective as they could be. 

To solve chronic pain as quickly as possible, not only do you need to solve the RIGHT problems (i.e. the source of your pain), but you need to solve those problems in the RIGHT order. 

For example…

Listen.

Silent.

These two words mean completely different things, but they are spelled with the same letters.

What’s different is the order the letters are in.

If you change the order the letters are in, you’ll get an entirely different word and meaning.

The same thing happens with exercises.

If you strengthen muscles or change movement patterns out of sequence… it can actually make the road to recovery longer and actually make the pain WORSE by creating new imbalances. 

But when you attack the right imbalances and problems at the right time, you CAN get lasting relief (and you can get it much faster than you probably think is possible). 

If you’re still with me and you’d like to take the first step to solving chronic pain for GOOD and understanding EXACTLY what’s happening in your body then I’d like to invite you to join… 

Introducing:

The Pain
Assessment Toolkit

Discover the Source of Chronic Pain (and/or Nagging Muscular Imbalances) and Begin Your Journey to Lasting Relief

the-pain-assessment-toolkit

Before I explain exactly what The Pain Assessment Toolkit IS, let me first tell you what it is NOT… 

This is NOT yet another program promising that the solution to your pain is just one “Forgotten Tibetan Stretch” or “30-second posture fix” away. 

I know what it feels like to be desperate for a solution and to be burned by unethical “experts” trying to make a quick buck… 

… And I refuse to be a part of that crowd. 

Which is why I want to be VERY clear about what I’m offering today. 

The Pain Assessment Toolkit is designed to help you get a snapshot of how your body is moving right now – and where the real problems are. 

And then provide you with a set of basic tools to start the road to relief by rebalancing the body and addressing faulty movement patterns.

pain-releif

To do this, I’m going to walk you through six simple assessments – that I explain in detail below – where you’ll: 

  • Complete a specific movement
  • Take pictures of how your body handles those movements
  • Learn how to analyze your results so you can start creating a long term solution to fix your pain for good.

Here’s exactly how it works and what you’ll find inside:

Test #1:

The Standing Test

In this first test, I’ll share how to quickly assess the way the body “stacks up” against gravity (literally) by looking at the connection between your ankles, knees, hips, pelvis, spine, and shoulders when standing. 

When our body is aligned and naturally stacked, we evenly distribute tension throughout our entire body.

But when we’re imbalanced and misaligned? 

We start to shift weight and force into some areas and not others. 

This oftens leads to discomfort, tension, and excessive stress.

Test #2:

The Hanging Test

Every time the body bends forward when putting on shoes, picking up kids, or cleaning the house, the right and left side function together. 

And when there’s an imbalance? It can make bending forward feel like a herculean task.

Which is why this second test allows students to analyze their bending patterns to see how the hips, pelvis, and spine move together (or in many cases don’t)

For folks who experience pain or tightness when they bend over or notice that they always place a hand on their knee to bend forward – this test is a huge eye opener.

Test #3:

Single Leg Test

During this test, I’ll help you spot how the hips, pelvis, spine, and shoulders work together to ensure balance. 

And most of our students are shocked when they view their photos and realize just how imbalanced their legs really are.

Again, with enough time, these imbalances and dysfunctions become normalized to the point that we no longer feel them. 

But by doing this assessment, students are able to see the imbalances that they aren’t able to feel. 

Test #4:

The Walking Test

In the words of Ron Burgundy, walking is, “Kinda a big deal.” 

Even in our sedentary modern lives, the average person takes anywhere from 4,000 to 5,000 steps a day. 

Meaning that they could be reinforcing faulty or irregular movement patterns hundreds of thousands of times each month. 

Which is why one of the most important parts of living a pain free life is to understand (and fix) the imbalance movements most of us have when walking. 

You’ll never be able to look at someone walking or feel yourself walking the same way after learning how to do this assessment!

Test #5:

The Hip Assessment

Considering that the average adult spends more than 6 hours a day sitting (conservatively) the hips are one of the primary sources of dysfunction and chronic pain. 

Most of the times when we have a big hip imbalance we can’t even feel it anymore because it’s been there for so long. Again the pain becomes “normalized” 

This test helps you feel and understand exactly what those hips are doing.

After doing this test you’ll gain an in-depth insight to how your body has learned to compensate for any imbalance that is coming from your hips.

Test #6:

The Squat Test

Finally, we have the squat assessment.

By doing this assessment, you’ll be able to see the true relationship your ankles, knees, hips, pelvis, spine and shoulders have through movement.

There’s no hiding or masking any imbalance, asymmetrical weight shift, or off center loading with this one.

You will take a look at how both sides are, or aren’t working together, as well as side views to understand how all of your joints coordinate motion together.

How All of This Works Together

With each assessment I’ll show you how to:

  • Take your photos
  • Assess and analyze what your body is doing (so you can identify the real problem areas)
  • Understand how joint dysfunction and muscle imbalance is impacting the way you move and feel
  • Gather important information that will then help you develop a strategy to get results

Our goal with each assessment is to help you understand what your body is doing when given a certain stimulus. We want you to see how your body works as a whole so that you can achieve the results you are looking for.

Now that you understand how it works, you’re probably wondering…

A diagnosis tries to understand a problem by examining the symptoms. A prognosis looks at the potential causes for a problem to occur. The Pain Assessment Toolkit is not about coming up with a diagnosis, it is about looking for the prognosis. I believe a strong prognosis can help resolve a diagnosis better than just having a diagnosis without understanding what caused it to be there. You’ll discover the power of The Pain Assessment Toolkit comes by teaching you how to objectively look at your body, how it performs, and how it’s not performing as it was designed to. This is the strategy we’ve used to help thousands of students resolve whatever underlying problems they have been experiencing for years.
