A Personal Message from Specialist Back Pain Physical Therapist, Alex Gometz
THIS REPORT is for the person suffering from debilitating Back Pain.
The type of “dull ache” or “sharp pain” where you get so frustrated that you feel your only option is to stop what you’re doing completely, reach for the pain medication and wonder how long you’ll have to restrict your enjoyment of life – as you wait for the pain to go away.
The thing is, all those pain medications are not good for your stomach and the long periods of rest you’ve been told about, that’s not likely to be doing you much good either.
Since 2001, I’ve been working on daily basis to help people aged 35+ find relief from acute AND chronic back pain – and what I can tell you is the un-healthy cocktail mix of more rest and more pain meds will do absolutely nothing to get to the root cause of most types of chronic back pain… no matter what most doctors say!
And it’s because I’m growing increasingly frustrated with the number of people suffering un-necessarily that I’ve written and published a 14 page report that details the 9 things ANY person aged 35+ can do to relieve back ache or pain, naturally… and I want you to have it at no charge.
Now, I don’t know if these 9 things will relieve you of your back pain completely.
And I can’t promise that what has worked for most of my patients and clients over 15+ years will also work for you.
However, reading this report has to be better than spending another day “resting”, accepting it, thinking, “it’s your age”, or worse yet, masking it with pain medication.
If your back pain is affecting your job, your ability to keep active threatens your independence or hinders family leisure time… then you really need to read this free report.
I want you to imagine how life would be in five years from now if you DON’T get a grip on your back pain NOW. How will your back pain affect your job? Your preservation of self worth and your independence? Will you be a fun person to be with? Or, even live with? Ok, you get my drift…
It’s time to request my free tips report… do that by calling the clinic at (212) 717 8330 or, click the button below and confirm your details.
There is a limited number of free copies of this report available – so please do it today.
For your health and wellness,
