This statement refers to a method for removing chronic pain. It comes from Pete Egoscue's book, Pain Free: A Revolutionary Method for Stopping Chronic Pain. It's about The Egoscue Method. A method that works!

But there's no such thing as "Pain Free"!

From my experience, it actually is possible to get back to pain free - time and time again! Like many of us, I sit at a computer all day and eventually work and stress build up and I find myself slouched over lie the homosapien pictured on the right...

... LOOK familiar?!

Or perhaps you started up an exercise class or sport only to find odd aches and pains the next day...

... FEEL familiar?

This post describes my experience, the Method, the book, the author and gives more resources.

Your body tells you when it is suffering

Many of Pete Egoscue's "e-cise" exercises take only a few minutes a day, but can fix a many "permanent" chronic conditions. Not Physical Therapy (PT). Not chiropractic. Definitely not surgery. 

Here is some of the best of what I've learned so far on this topic...

  • If you are in acute pain, I'd suggest gettting the Pain Free book by Pete Egoscue. It will serve you for years, like it has me. There is so much packed into even the first 3 chapters. See the bonus You can watch a video story about it.
  • It uses simple "e-cises" (exercises) for posture alignment to gently take our bodies back to they way they were designed. After maintaining bad posture, we get bad muscle memory and eventually chronic pain.
  • You can usually google 'Egoscue [pain]' and Bee pain free!...
  • Sitting at a computer all day, I often get back pain. His book and videos like this one from Pete at Sonima.com gets me "back" every time. ;)

What, exactly, IS Egoscue?

Founded by Pete Egoscue in the 70's, The Egoscue Method is postural therapy. We believe that pain, both chronic and acute, is due to misalignment in the body as it loses its designed posture. The human body is designed to move! However, with most of society becoming more and more sedentary, the body begins to develop musculoskeletal dysfunctions and compensations. When those are present, pain and injury set in or are lurking right around the corner. The Egoscue Method restores the body back to its designed posture, alleviating pain and returning you back to an active, pain free lifestyle. You can learn more by watching our “What is Egoscue?” video.

Who is Pete Egoscue?

Pete Egoscue, an anatomical physiologist since 1978, is the creator of the Egoscue Method for safe, effective, and permanent relief from chronic pain without prescription painkillers or invasive surgery. His exercise therapy program is acclaimed worldwide for treating chronic musculoskeletal pain attributed to workplace and sports injuries, accidents, aging, and other conditions. He has been consulted by some of the biggest names in sports. His books include Pain Free, The Egoscue Method of Health Through Motion, Pain Free for Women, Pain Free at Your PC, and Pain Free Living.

Sonima founder Sonia Jones credits Pete Egoscue with saving her life. Egoscue, the alignment and pain management expert, first met Sonia after she had undergone back surgery and could barely walk. His revolutionary approach to fitness and alignment transformed her physical body and turned her on to yoga, one of her greatest passions.

I am si excited to check out this book! My husband had been dealing with severe chronic pain for years that has been unsuccessfully managed with high doses of different narcotic medications. He went through a life threatening experience about 5 years ago when his pain management doctor was transitioning him from fentanyl to methadone. The methadone has caused an increase in as well as the addition of numerous health issues for Christopher over the past years as well! I am always keeping my eyes out for anything that could possibly be an effective alternative to his current pain management medications which in truth, are not managing his chronic pain at all and! The benefits of the various high doses of pain medications Christopher has been prescribed over the past several years, in my opinion, absolutely have not out-weighed the increasingly severe side effects that have caused! I am grateful to have found this book and look forward to reading it! I am also glad to have found this hive that will hopefully give me the opportunity to make some amazing new connections!
