PAIN-FREE AT LAST! Synopsis and Benefits of Performing This Exercise Program


PAIN-FREE AT LAST! has three main sections. I. The Daily Stretching Program includes specific, detailed references to stretching of all major muscle groups, including all extremities, as well as the back and neck. Since the model(s) referenced have normal muscle and joint flexibility, not only is the stretch posture described, but the final flexibility goal for each muscle group is also demonstrated. This enables the user to quickly assess their current level of flexibility, and to ensure that normal values are achieved. Nearly all reference works I have evaluated fail to cite what normal values are (resulting in readers either under- or over- stretching: either condition will result in premature arthritis, due respectively to either: 1) excessive joint compression abrading the cartilage joint surfaces; or 2) joint instability producing pistoning within the joint resulting in extraneous forces and ligament laxity). II. Stretching With a Partner. While the entire program can be performed in an effective manner on your own, the rate of progress will be enhanced when a partner is available to assist with a few select exercises; and III. Strengthening Exercises are designed to restore normal strength in major muscle groups, which, in combination with consistent performance of the daily stretching program, will act to spontaneously correct most acute postural faults. This section primarily emphasizes strengthening of the abdominals (upper, lower and oblique), the neck and back musculature (which prevents the development of the "hunchback" posture); the hip abductors; and the wrist extensors (where acquiring normal strength ensures against he development and progression of Carpal Tunnel Syndrome/CTS symptoms). Booklet. Additionally, an accompanying booklet provides a narrative description of all video-referenced exercises.


PAIN-FREE AT LAST! is reliable and different from other stretching programs because 1) it sets objectively measurable goals for monitoring your progress throughout the course of the program; 2) the exercises are biomechanically efficient and safe to perform; and 3) it is easy for the consumer to understand how to properly "dose" an appropriate amount of stretching exercise to meet their own individual needs, regardless of what occupation or sporting activities they prefer.


Author is a Medical Professional. This exercise program is the product of more than 15 years of clinical research. Through simple language, it reflects the most effective and concise means by which the user can immediately benefit from the knowledge base I have acquire after having treated thousands of orthopedic and neurological conditions that resulted from untreated AMS.

Video Instruction is Superior. Unlike a book, video exercise instruction provides enhanced spatial orientation so that you can be certain of how to utilize specific stretching and strengthening postures. Or, as I have learned from providing exercise instructions to my patients: Observing = Remembering, and Remembering = Following Through With It.. This comprehensive, yet user-friendly exercise program quickly provides a functional understanding of the correct performance of an effective daily stretching program. Most subjects can obtain maximum benefits from stretching 15 to 30 minutes per day.

Specific Benefits Provided: 1) prompt relief of muscle and joint pain, including arthritis- related pain and children's "growing pains"; 2) spontaneous improvement of (acute) postural faults; 3) protection from injury, including Repetitive Stress Injury (RSI), whether occupational- or sports- related; 4) maximum physical independence in the elderly, by resolving muscle and joint pain while improving joint function. Increased joint motion improves walking stability and speed, in addition to making it much easier to perform routine activities of daily living (ADLs); Individuals may work at their own pace and within their current tolerance; 5) this exercise program can minimize and prevent the incidence of osteoarthritis; 6) Maximum athletic potential is achieved by promoting normal joint biomechanics and increased protein synthesis in muscle tissue, while acting to improved muscle function (elasticity, strength, local muscular circulation, and other physical properties) which: 7) safeguards against muscle pulls and joint injuries; this is beneficial to young athletes and students who are aggressively involved in sports, but may not be following a sound stretching program. 

Economy: For less that the cost of one office call, you will have lifetime access to a clinically-proven reference that offers freedom from activity-limiting muscle and joint pain, while providing protection against work- and sports- related injuries. While the program is not intended to take the place of maintaining routinely scheduled medical examinations, many benefits are provided which help to promote maximum health, while retaining the economy of a preventative approach. Many elders could attain an independent or modified-independent lifestyle, thereby avoiding or greatly delaying the need to pay out-of-pocket expenses for an assisted living center; or having to "spin-down" their estate to initially fund their residency at a skilled nursing facility (either of which can easily cost $50,000 to $100,000 per year, often economically mandating lifestyle changes for their spouse in the process).

Exercise Books:  Beware of Dangerous Imitations:  At this point I would like to caution readers against utilizing lesser references, as optimal health can only be obtained by achieving 1) normal muscle and joint range of motion; and 2) correct postural alignment. I have performed an in-depth review of past and recent works, and find that no one work consistently demonstrates accurate nor comprehensive information regarding: 1) biomechanically correct (and therefore SAFE!) exercise postures; 2) correct postural alignment; or 3) normal values for muscle and joint flexibility (most programs fall short in encouraging the subject to acquire normal flexibility, which is a problem since even a 10% decrease in normal flexibility will promote pain syndromes in some individuals; while others cite incorrect exercises that promote excessive soft tissue flexibility, leading to joint instability, increasing the potential for incurring arthritic deterioration and injury). It is ironic that many individuals unwittingly give prompt credence to the works of retired athletes who have never received any professional anatomical training.
