What is PAIN, what is the cause, how do I recover, and how do I prevent it? Treating SYMPTOMs and CAUSEs! Flip Chart By: Jim Wissing Athletes4Life, LLC Owner, LMT
Hi, and thank you for taking time to review this Flip Chart about PAIN! There is a ton of confusing information about our health, what to do, and what to eat. Even with a license from the Ohio State Medical Board it was driving me crazy. Emotionally stressed, all I wanted was to get rid of my pain without becoming a chemist in the grocery store, and without spending a fortune on pills and organic food! Today I have control of my healthcare, am virtually pain free, getting better at exercising (lol), and eating healthy food I like that is affordable. It took research from doctors, nurses, and the National Institute of Health in order for me to understand what to do and what to eat so I could make my own choices. So I put this together so you don’t get lost in the alphabet soup! There is a lot of medical information here, and we did our best to simplify and organize it. You don’t need to understand or remember everything, we just want to be sure that you know we do, and the care we provide is clinically correct. Jim

PAIN is the SYMPTOM OF: Muscles at rest should be smooth and loose. Tight muscles at rest are congested and inflamed. Inflamed muscles put pressure on the tendons by the joints. Tendons have defense sensors to tell the brain to relax the muscle. Inflamed muscles cannot relax and lengthen so tension continues. Continuous tension causes PAIN! MOST JOINT PAIN IS/ORIGINATED AS A MUSCLE PROBLEM! AT RESTACTIVE
When you burn energy Aerobically (With Oxygen) – 38 energy molecules are created! When you burn energy Anaerobically (Without Oxy) – ONLY 2 molecules are created, AND free radicals are created. Free Radicals attack cell walls, proteins, and DNA! TISSUE DAMAGE BEGINS (Oxidative Stress), and you feel tight muscles! Free Radicals attack muscles AND tendons! What Causes Inflammation? Poor Energy Burn!
Why don’t we have enough Oxygen? Physical Stressful Jobs Poor posture / decreased lung capacity Tight / knotted muscles Smoking Air Quality – pollution, being indoors Spinal disease – Kyphosis Lack of exercise Excess Exercise or the body cant ingest enough oxygen to satisfy the body’s needs. *All day meeting in a conference room.
Free Radicals vs Antioxidants What are Free Radicals? Unstable molecule, or a molecule with a missing electron (energy). Steals electrons from other molecules causing Oxidative Stress / TISSUE DAMAGE. Kill Mitochondria (organelles that produce energy for the muscles). What are Antioxidants? Antioxidants have an extra electron. They give an electron to the Free Radical and NUTRALIZE Oxidative Stress. The best antioxidants are in vegetables and fruits, so eat 10 servings per day!
Acidosis Caused from lack of oxygen and Free Radical damage
Ok, so that was a lot ! At this point, we know that we have tight inflamed muscles, PAIN/Acidosis in some parts of our bodies. We also know we need more oxygen, and we need to eat more veges and fruits to stop tissue damage. So what’s the process? First, to improve blood flow and oxygen/antioxidant delivery we need MUSCLE THERAPY. Not just any massage or any massage therapist is able to apply the proper techniques in the proper sequence to systematically restore blood flow. I have personally trained and certified our therapists on our Athletic Relaxation Massage that uses our unique, self developed procedures. Our procedures …
