“Discover How To Finally Ease Long-Term Chronic Pain, Recurring Headaches, Reduce Unwanted Stiffness And Release Tension In Tight Muscles, Naturally – Without Any Nasty Side-Effects

If you’ve been suffering with chronic knee pain, lower back stiffness, serious muscle tension, agonizing headaches, excruciating migraines, or even painful arthritis that runs inside your joints – it can be very tempting to simply live with it and hope that it’ll go away on it’s own. Or pass it off as something that “everyone your age will have to “put up with” at some point…

Or maybe you’ve tried just about everything from rest to medication to injections, and advice from other healthcare professions, but still nothing seems to be able to give you the outcome you’re looking for – an end to pain and suffering.

If that’s happening to you, and you’re experiencing any of the above – you’re not alone. We hear this type of thing all the time at our clinic… People who have been living with chronic pain, unwanted headaches and tension, for months (sometimes even years) who can’t seem to find a solution to fix it.

And when it comes to living with this frustration, everybody we see wants to know:

Why is This Happening to Me?

or

Why am I STILL suffering for months even though I’ve tried just about everything to ease the pain and fix the problem?

Most people hope that when they get pain in their knee, back or neck, tension and tightness in their muscles, headaches that spring on them out of nowhere, and annoying pain in their joints – that it’ll go away on it’s own…

…That they’ll wake up one morning and like “magic”, it’ll be as if it never happened… But then 6 months later (or even years) you’re still living with the problem – often even worse than it was when it came on.

Does That Sound Like You?

Another scenario we see all the time in our clinic is when people go to the Doctors, and the Doctor tells them to rest and “try these painkillers” and “see how it goes”.

But this is rarely ever the best advice and often 6 weeks later, they end up going back to the Doctor again because it hasn’t got any better. Worse, they’re often given yet another prescription of even stronger pills, advised MORE rest, and even told the only solution is to get injections. This is madness and explains why so many people aged 50+ are suffering with chronic pain, daily.

Has This Type Of Thing Happened To You?

Why else do these types of things last longer than they should? Well, it’s easy to get confused because you’ve been told different things, by different people. There’s lots of people out there who are happy to dispense advice – but not all of it is credible.

Maybe you think your pain was caused by doing something – like lifting or sleeping awkwardly – but really it was caused by years and years of poor posture that caused your muscles and joints to become weak and the lifting, or the awkward sleeping position was just the RESULT of that.

Maybe you think your frequent headaches are brought on by stress, and your migraines by something you ate which you can’t quite put your finger on – but really they were caused by all of the tension you carry in your neck and shoulders that only seems to get worse.

Or maybe you think your arthritis is an inevitable part of getting older and that everyone your age experiences at some point – but really it was caused by something else completely like wear and tear, or the tissues in your joints becoming weaker because of an injury that never properly healed…

All of this can be very confusing, and because of this, many people just end up accepting it as ‘part of life’ – as if it’s normal, and ‘just the way it is’.

Do You Feel That Way Too?

If you’re currently suffering with pain, headaches or tension, here’s 8 more reasons why it could be lasting longer than it should:

  • 1. You hoped it would go away on it’s own - but it didn’t
  • 2. You went to the Doctor who told you to rest and take painkillers - but the pills did nothing to help, and as soon as they wore off, chronic pain struck again
  • 3. A family member, or friend, told you that everybody gets joint stiffness, aches and pains as they get older, so you just accepted it
  • 4. You tried other Healthcare Professionals, or a Physical Therapist in the past, but nothing they said or did seemed to help
  • 5. You put your headaches and muscle tension down to being “stressed” - but nothing you did to relax or destress made a difference
  • 6. You thought it would be a good idea to rest because your pain was so bad, but all that did was make your body feel even more stiff and tight
  • 7. You were advised that the only way to help with your arthritis and joint pain was to get injections - but you have to keep going back to get them, and you don’t want to have to keep getting injections and taking pills to ease the pain long-term
  • 8. You wish there was natural solution - but you’ve been told there’s no such thing, so you stopped looking

Now you know why you’re still suffering – the next thing you might want to know is this:

“What Can I Do To Finally Get Rid Of MY Pain Once and For All?”…

Well, here’s 4 things you can do:
  • 1. First off, you need to make a decision about getting help. So many people procrastinate for so long, thinking that their health concern will ‘just go away with time’, or that they have to ‘live with it’ but then months, or years later down the line they’re still putting up with it, and nothing’s changed… Or it gets worse
  • 2. Next, do the RIGHT exercises – one of the best things to help you ease your pain and stiffness is to do the right series of progressed exercises - the right exercises given to you by a Physical Therapist alongside Cupping treatment will help reduce pain, and allow you to move freely again quick - and make sure that the problems don’t come back anytime soon (or aggravate your muscles and joints even more like some exercises do).
  • 3. Avoid taking pills and strong medications – it’s likely you’ve been prescribed countless medications or even injections, to help ease your pain, headaches, or arthritis - but the truth is, all of those painkillers are no good for your health long-term, and they only mask the pain. It would really help if you tried a natural solution to ease your long-term pain like Acupuncture, which has helped many people just like you who have hit a ‘roadblock’ when trying to find a solution to ease their pain.
  • 4. Get a real, natural solution with Cupping and Physical Therapy - A mixture of Cupping and Physical Therapy is proven to help people with long-term chronic pain, muscle tightness and headaches. In fact at Empowerment Physical Therapy we see people all the time who feel like they’ve tried everything they possibly can to finally get back to living life free from pain. If your health concern is affecting your job, your ability to keep active, if it threatens your independence or gets in the way of spending quality time with family and friends - Acupuncture can help get you back to living the life you deserve as quickly as possible, naturally.

Patient Testimonials

I recommend Shi Feng because he is an amazing physical therapist well worth the time and money.

For context, I threw out my lower back on April 25th, in the middle of returning a tennis serve. Spasms hit my lower back as I finished my return shot causing me to lose my ability to do anything normal (e.g. walk, stand, sit, get up on my own, put on my socks).

I was in desperate need to be normal again. I found Shi Feng and he really came to my rescue Sunday, April 28th. On Sunday, April 28th, I was able to get up from dining room chairs but could not get up from my couch. I could walk extremely slowly but with a limp. Any quick movements caused spasms and all of the activities listed above caused some sort of pain.

When Shi Feng visited, he was very patient. He asked about any historical conditions, asked about my day to day activities, and took the time to really learn about me and my body condition. Shi Feng seems to have a combination of eastern and western techniques to help relieve muscle pain. He provided a cupping experience on my back, which relieved any pain and strain for at least 2 hours so that he could show me the physical therapy exercises I could do to strengthen my core. Shi Feng also used a myofascial tool to feel out the pain points that needed work and provided exercises that targeted the stressed areas. Shi Feng explained the causes of lower back pain and provided me with a track to get back to normal state. Shi Feng is very knowledgeable.

I find that when the job is done, most people go away until called again for another session. To my pleasant surprise, Shi Feng is the exact opposite. He looked for ways to get free equipment that can further assist me in my recovery. Shi Feng followed up on my progress and kept me accountable for the exercises I promised I’d do. All of this came with no extra charge. This shows that he simply cares about the people he works with and is very into his career.

Today is May 28, a little over a month after my incident, and I’ve regained most of my mobility. I once again feel normal and can play some recreational tennis. I really thank Shi Feng for all of his assistance throughout the month. It was a unique experience and I don’t think I’d be where I am today without his help.

I’m struggling with hip and foot pain for close to a couple of years now. I’ve had 4 epidurals in the back and 2 steroid injections in the hip so far and nothing seemed to help. I’ve also been to a lot of PT sessions at different places and no relive from the pain.

After the epidurals and the steroids failed recently, I wanted to do more conservative treatment and looked online for good reviews for a PT and found Empowerment. True to all the reviews online, Shi-Feng Lin had a really good diagnosis of my problem and making good progress just under a handful of sessions. He identified problems with my posture, gluteus muscle in the hip and the upper back not being able to stretch properly. The thing I like most about them is instead of addressing the symptoms, Shi-Feng addressed the root cause so the symptoms doesn’t pop again. Even though, I’m still at the early stages of the PT and have a few weeks to go, I feel truly confident I will be back to normal very soon.
