Pinched Nerves

Pinched nerves are extremely misunderstood and often incorrectly blamed for long term pain.

While a pinched nerve can be extremely painful the pain rarely lasts longer than a couple of weeks. If there is pressure on the nerve the blood flow is restricted and within a couple of weeks the nerve dies. Therefore, if the pain lasts longer than a couple of weeks a pinched nerve is probably not the culprit.

A pinched nerve occurs when too much pressure is applied to a nerve by surrounding tissues such as bones, cartilage, muscles or tendons. This pressure disrupts the nerve's function, causing pain, tingling, numbness or weakness.

Anything from normal use to a structural abnormality such as a herniated disc or spinal stenosis may cause a pinched nerve. While these structural abnormalities are real, the pain from a pinched nerve won’t last more than a couple of weeks.

COMMON SYMPTOMS Incorrectly blamed on Pinched Nerves

  • Pain lasting longer than 2 weeks

  • Sciatica

  • Tingling

  • Burning

  • Weakness


Remember this before seeking treatment... Pinched nerve pain rarely lasts longer than 2 weeks.

This is proven by scientific studies and published by the most trusted medical journals in the world. If your pain has lasted longer than this, it probably has nothing to do with the nerve.

That’s why everything you’ve tried so far has only provided some temporary relief. Then the pain and other symptoms come rushing back again and again...

The old-school medical approach treats the symptom, not the cause. Since the nerve is almost never the cause of subacute or chronic pain any positive results are only temporary.

The latest neuroscience studies have shown that the cause of pain, and other symptoms based on structure and physiology, actually have a psycho-physical cause associated with stress and tension.

You already know that stress and tension exacerbate your pain. What you’ve never known before right now is that what causes your stress and tension is what actually causes your pain. The same pain that is almost always incorrectly blamed on pinched nerves.

Over 30 years of scientific and neuroscientific research have determined this outcome. The biggest benefit for you is that the real cause of most pain has been determined. You have new options to relieve your pain that were completely unavailable before. This stops the days of ongoing pain management and adds the possibility for millions of people to use a conservative, safe and proven method to permanently eliminate their pain and other symptoms.

A purely intellectual and emotion focused approach pioneered by Dr. John Sarno in the 1970’s has proven exceptionally effective for people diagnosed with bulging disc, herniated disc, fibromyalgia, spinal stenosis, radiculopathy, whiplash, sciatica, migraine headaches and other incomplete diagnoses.

While most doctors are not aware of this concept, millions of people have been helped through the work of Dr. Sarno and many other doctors and experts since then. You too can benefit by opening up your mind to this alternate reason for your pain and the simple approach to ending your symptoms.

The downside is that not everyone can be pain free. The upside is that there is a Pain Test that has been scientifically developed to provide an objective result based on your specific situation. This will provide you exactly what you need to know about whether or not you can permanently end your pain.
