Hi everyone, welcome to my website!
I am glad to be able to share with you all who I am as an individual, first and foremost.
As a back pain expert and specialist who focuses on inflammation from body mechanics to nutrition, The back pain industry has been an aspect of my life that I hold close to my heart, and not because I have had my fair share of encounters with ALL levels of back pain, in which range from acute, chronic, to sciatic nerve pain; but because I get to help 100’s of people a day get back to their optimal health.
my past troubles more specifically all entailed disc, muscles, joints, ligaments, tendons, scoliosis, arthritis and abnormal curvature in the spine.
Not only was I a victim from lower back pain, but I also struggled with the most basic foundations- “how to treat it the right way, both fundamentally and naturally.“
As an active athlete for the majority of my life who specialized in soccer, I learned from a young age how to not only perfect the sport, but learn how to break it down from a Body mechanic, nutrition, and mental as well as physical point of view.
In my times of healing from acute and chronic lower back pain, the only thing on my mind I remember some years back being that I couldn’t wait to get back to doing what I loved – kicking the soccer ball, and strengthening my muscles and joints(makes me excitingly anxious 🙂
But there was only one HUGE proble standing in the way of my sports and academic success…
My Spine – Everything related to and non-specific to the Lumbar region.
I now know all too well the consequences of not taking better care of your back, and all the structures that make it up. Like:
- your joints
- facet joints
…and way more!
to take care of the lower back, takes some “trial and error”, and as you might know already you’ll fail before you succeed. Everyone’s different, your process is different, but we can all use similar methods to heal, and prevent lower back pain from stopping you from living your best life. A
I Take Things With A Grain Of Salt
About 5 years ago, I could get away with a small strain or sprain, a muscle and joint ache here and there. I’d use menthol, capsaicin, and oil creams to treat my less severe knocks. Wrap some KT tape, and call it good.
It worked like I needed – in the short run.
In a couple years, that’s when things got “tricky”…
fast forward to age 21, something new had developed.Degenerative disc disorder.
I tried just about everything to get rid of a Degenerative Disc (DD) in my L1-L3, L4-S1.
I lost mobility and strength. My muscles became weak and In fault my joints became even weaker, and I heard some crunching.
I started hunching, and slumping anywhere I found myself.
A herniated disc is no fun when it disrupts daily activities either…
I couldn’t get up to do the simplest low-impact activity like walking, sitting in a car, and sitting at work- haha, just forget it.
My posture just got worse, and my weight increased an extra 25 pounds! Who was I right?
It didn’t help my on going scoliosis, arthritis, anterior tilt from my hips, hamstrings and glutes, and my nerves started to shake a bit.
But I found support, change, and solutions…
Icing helped to lessen the swelling from inflammation, and so did heat therapy to bring blood circulation to my area of pain. Alternating between the two worked especially well for my random flare ups, when my pain was more acute.
When my pain became more severe, I found more long term solutions…
Then I crawled my way into topicals/analgesics. What I needed was not just a temporary “fix” to alleviate my pain, but something more long term.
certain creams helped me, not on the soccer field, but with my day to day living. I was able to do the things I needed to before. I noticed my muscles didn’t hurt, the 100% all natural cream I used specialized for my joints, made me feel brand new.
and so that’s when it started looking up…
I began to work on my posture, investing about 1 hour each day to standing better, and at work I used the right tools and ergonomics to help. By far was the best decisions I’ve taken.
Thereafter, I was able to focus more deeply on my day to day exercises, I strengthened my L4-L5 region(offers your flexibility and strength) and I reshaped my weight by trimming my stomach, working my abs – allowing me to take pressure off my spine.
My nutrition took off!
I ate clean, I started to incorporate anti-inflammatory meals with herbs.
My mentality rose, and I noticed as I was going through my exercises with yoga, it helped me decrease pain.
I even took lessons from DR John E. Sarno on Healing Back pain. A whole 360 on handling pain. “It’s more in your mind that we create the pain”
A clear picture began to form…
I now knew the way to remove lower back pain in less than half a year.
i truly reloaded what it is like to not live with lower back pain as an athlete, but as a less active lifestyle.
I worked with my closest family member my mom, and helped her. I took my years of pain and condensed into into less than 6 months.
I listened to her, her body, and configured a blueprint, if you will.
Now, I had a system to work with…
It was evident that I now knew the process to get people where they need to be. Whether you started with different conditions, there’s a healing process tailored to your needs.
“It is common sense to take a method and try it. If it fails, admit it frankly and try another. But above all, try something.”
― Franklin D. Roosevelt,
I found solutions from the people around me, and I have them to thank for my recoveries.
Onto I went, using the most old school techniques combined with the more advanced and latest treatments…
What I Do Best
I am an active person within my community, and within the online world, trying to make an HONEST living in helping other people and patients succeed from their back pain issues, and getting them to use more natural treatments that actually help treat the root of the cause-inflammation.
When I am not working you can find me dedicating my time to my hobbies, such as soccer, working out, and most importantly, squeezing in that much valuable time with family and friends.
A Little Back Story
Growing up I will remember always thinking big… I knew very little of what I wanted to be but my thoughts about prospering were never cut short. I will recall my first measurable goal. This was in the world of sports, in particular with soccer.
One year led to the next and I found myself at a division one program. My vision of a student athlete was created right in front of my eyes. I surely was not the most athletic out there, but I kept in mind that I had the heart to get my batteries charged.
Fast forward two years later and I made the decision to move back to Vancouver, Washington. Here I continued my two year education at the local community college, where I was pursuing a degree in business with an emphasis in chemistry.
After attaining my associates degree in general arts, I had to make a choice. Either I continue my education, or I take this time to work. I choose the labor force.
The road to success is not only justified by an education but in many other routes as how I saw it at the time.
It was while I was working at my recent job position as a material coordinator that I realized I needed a REAL change…
My road was not easy, I started working for A company known as Liobridge Technologies, and under the same building with Hewlett Packard(HP). I did work here as a material handler/coordinator, and I was using a forklift and picking up heavy boxes manually. I didn’t get an actual screenshot of the environment, but this is what I was lifting manually at times:
This, and heavy sized and longer boxes that either came in A3 Size or Legal. The point being was that it was making my back cry in pain. I had to deal with putting boxes on pallets, stacking small boxes like the one above(A4 Size) of like 15 or so pounds over and over, and other much larger like up to 45Lbs.
And imagine not using tools to make it easier, yeah, I had to do it manually at times with a pallet jack, pushing and pulling over “tons of pallets”. I did use belts, and proper position, but when I let up, it really gave out.
None the less, I attained success, and learned many lessons.
The road to success is not only justified by an education but in many other routes.
Life was getting on the back burner and I was searching for the momentum to get me rolling once again. I knew I needed to help others. I have all this knowledge in academics, and from personal experiences, but how do I use them?
It was not until my best friend talked to me about helping people online. I asked how? He proceeded to tell me that I could help people understand and fix their own problems. It was a no brainer…
I jumped right into the field I had much experience in, lower back pain.
You Are Why I Get Up Early In The Morning
There are many people like myself that believe we were not just placed on earth to help people, but have become molded to do it. Yes, my own words lol.
I did not wake up out of my bed one day and assume this is what I needed to do. Rather, so, I adopted a philosophy over the course of my teenage yours and into adulthood.
My philosophy was that to gain more in life I must help show action to others and give my support to their specific needs.
I’ve had TONS of back aches, continuous pain(nonspecific, specific) and re-appearing inflammation. Being a chronic pain patient, I want to give back to what helped me overcome it, and I hope to make sure you get the most benefit, and if need be cost effective solution.
I would like to take you back as far as my junior year of high school, so please let me journey us back to 2010.
This was an instrumental year because of the people I learned to lean on. My teachers, guidance counselor, and even my coaches made an impact on me.
My teachers did not want to see me slump in class when I thought I could for a short period in time. When I thought about putting in less work to earn a satisfactory grade, they were there to push me to turn my B into an A.
The integral point was not how I knew to do an assignment or exam, but the outcomes of why I was doing it; for better skills and knowledge.
My guidance counselor created my path post high school. I remember my senior year being pivotal. I would meat regularly with my counselor just to catch up and have word on how classes went, and in general life talk.
Unlucky, I not have all the resources to make decisions about what school I wanted to end up at or if I should even continue higher education as a student athlete.
I give my gratitude to Mr Woods for the fact that he was never short on quality information about what options in education were the best out there, and he even talked about his backstory as to how he made decisions.
I figured out that through their own personal stories they were reaching out to me to go and get it.
Mentors will always be key. My soccer coaches were vital. I learned through them that it was about putting others first and not themselves.
When I felt I could not help my self, these men were here to help me battle through the difficult times. I asked my coach one day, why is that you do what you do?
The response I got: My experiences and knowledge in this field serve better purpose when I am exchanging my time to others.
