Self-Care Secrets for Muscle and Joint Pain

Self Care Secrets

  • Knee pain
  • Back pain
  • Shin splints
  • Heel pain, sole pain, or plantar fasciitis
  • Shoulder pain, or
  • Aches and pains anywhere else.

No matter which specific pain pattern you have, you can empower yourself by attending to your own body. Your body can teach you to

  • move your body parts with freedom, balance and ease
  • loosen your tight spots with effective mobilizing exercise
  • avoid those too-soft beds, crippling office chairs, and scrunchifying car seats
  • correctly engage postural support muscles
  • work out muscle kinks with self-treatment methods
  • and much more.

You just need a little information and a boost of confidence to get started.

My colleague Paul Ingraham, a relentless medical journalist and massage therapist in Vancouver, has developed some useful resources to help you on the path to intelligent self-care.

He’s researched and published a series of e-books to point you on the way to controlling your own situation.  They’re bursting with effective, safe measures based on thorough scientific knowledge combined with old fashioned common sense.

He’s been gracious enough to make his e-books available to readers of Your Body of Knowledge.  Here are some of the topics you can access:
