Now I know how to do that – and I’ve put all my hard-won secrets from the last 18 years into an affordable online course that will change the course of your career and give you the satisfaction of truly helping people.
Treating pain isn’t very difficult once you understand where it comes from. Unfortunately, the medical system and nearly all alternative practitioners are uninformed about the true origins of pain.
Oddly enough, pain is a mystery to the medical profession. Our medical system is still in the middle ages in terms of understanding pain, which is why we have over 65,000 people a year dying of opiate overdose in the US. Pain is assumed by the medical establishment to always be a product of injury or disease, but this is just plain wrong.
I’m a trigger point therapist, and it has been demonstrated in repeated studies as well as my own 15 years of clinical experience that the vast majority of pain is from muscles that have developed trigger points.
I developed my own system by combining techniques from Thai massage and other modalities with trigger point therapy and modern neuroscience. It really works, and now my mission is to teach others this revolutionary approach.
Trigger points, which are actually responsible for most pain, are small areas of stagnation in muscle tissue that develop in response to chronic or acute stresses on muscles. Trigger point ideas are very powerful – but unfortunately, most students are taught trigger points in a way that is not very useful – or they don’t learn it at all. I call my system Trigger Point 2.0 because I teach it very differently than you might have learned in massage school.
Trigger points aren’t injuries – but they commonly send pain to other areas (pain referral) in a way that can be confusing and feel very much like an injury. This fools everyone – doctors, PTs, most practitioners.
While the pain can be severe, trigger points are fairly easy to correct. The techniques aren’t difficult – what’s important is knowing what muscles to treat and in what order. Our system combines the insights of modern neuroscience with a new take on trigger point therapy – and some extremely effective techniques and tools for putting these ideas into practice.
If a client goes to the doctor with pain in the front of their shoulder, the doctor is very likely to tell them that they have an “itis”… bursitis, arthritis, tendonitis, something torn, some type of inflammatory disease state or injury. Somehow, their body just broke.
It seems obvious and tempting to blame the problem on the structures and “injuries” near the site of the pain – however, this is almost never the true cause.
Pain for the most part comes from muscles. A single muscle accounts for the vast majority of the pain in the front of the shoulder, and it happens to live in the back of the shoulder. It’s confusing until you have seen it over and over, in hundreds of people – as we have.
That muscle is the infraspinatus. It can easily become overloaded because it has to stabilize your arm in the shoulder joint any time you move it.
Like most muscles, the “infra” is fairly easy to treat. We show you in detail how to find taut fibers, work the muscle into short and length, and provide manual distraction and feedback on related muscles during movement.
Individual muscles are fairly easy to treat. The thing is, it’s very rarely about a single muscle. It takes a village. In the shoulder, muscles are required to work together in a complex way because it’s a delicately orchestrated joint with a lot of mobility. You have to not only treat the infraspinatus, but understand and treat its related muscles that tend to perpetuate its dysfunction.
We understand these relationships and have incorporated them – along with our decades of clinical experience – into what we call our Shoulder Pain Core Protocol. In this course, you will be guided through an intelligent sequence, or protocol, that covers the muscles and relationships behind the vast majority of shoulder pain.
You will learn the satellite and functional muscle relationships that tend to cause dysfunction in the infra, along with common
perpetuating factors that are likely to set the whole thing in motion. This analysis is the key to giving people significant benefit in a single session, and keeping their pain from returning.
Even severe pain cases and scary diagnoses, such as frozen shoulder, tend to follow the same common patterns. These cases won’t be scary or frustrating any longer when you’re armed with true understanding.
This exciting new online course incorporates our decades of clinical experience in treating shoulder pain using my Coaching The Body™ method. I can safely say that this is the most powerful and effective course on shoulder pain that I’ve ever created.
We’ve distilled out the most important muscles and the best sequence to treat them in. More importantly, you learn how to use our analysis method to understand and resolve your clients’ shoulder pain at the source, not wasting your time on esoteric muscles that don’t often contribute.
I’ve taught this approach to hundreds of students successfully at my school in Evanston, IL, and now all of my shoulder secrets are available to you in an affordable, online course – the cost of which you can recover in a session or two.
Chuck's in-person and online teaching has now achieved international recognition as one of the most sophisticated and successful approaches in the world for treatment of pain and dysfunction.
Doug was a yoga instructor (and a musician, and a graphic designer, and a soccer player) with chronic back pain. As long as he was practicing yoga, he wasn’t in pain.
But he found himself unable to help his students with their chronic and severe pain. He felt frustrated by his lack of knowledge in functional anatomy and kinesiology.
Doug explored a myriad of learning opportunities—but after a life-changing experience with Thai Bodywork, he decided to enroll in Chuck Duff’s Level I training program. And we still can’t get rid of him.
Three years later, Doug quit his job in digital publishing to become a full-time therapist and teacher. He’s been teaching alongside Chuck since 2014, and he now sees clients at his Highland Park clinic in addition to his training and curriculum development at CTBI.
I have had a shoulder issue for 2 1/2 yrs never went to dr. I have just been treating with massage therapy weekly with some relief, & added Rom but never seem to regain all my Rom w/o pain. OMGoodness I just self treated with Liberator & full Rom w/o pain Im absolutely amazed! keep checking it and it is gone w/ full Rom!
The content of the course is very well presented from the anatomy to pain referral patterns. The demos are easy to follow. It is great to be able to go back and review the material as needed.
This training has been one of the best investments I have made. And I’m not even halfway through my training! I highly recommend it if you’re considering it.
I want you to do this, because my mission is to change the way that pain is understood and treated in our society. The best way for me to achieve that is to create a movement of highly effective Pain Hackers – so I’m offering you an incredible value on this course. The CEs alone are worth much more than what I’m asking you to pay.
While we clean up the final details, I’m opening this fantastic course up to you for less than $200. Once you purchase, you will have permanent 24/7 streaming access to the videos, and can review them at any time. This offer won’t be coming back.
Do this now – and become the Pain Hacker that all of your clients are talking (and telling their friends) about.
