I have the book and work book, Stop Pain Now, and am actively reading and doing the exercises.
I am interested in Mayo Clinical Trials.
I do not know why http://www.theACPA.org is not up.

Please advise clinic trials from the author Adam Heller, and the book ZERO PAIN NOW, conducted at the Mayo Clinic, previously, mentioned in book.
Is this mind-body review of negative emotions actively being used at Mayo Clinic today to reduce or eliminate chronic pain ?
JJ, You’re welcome. Like getting through grief, the mental health for all of us with physical health issues need to share. I found several groups through Mental Health of our local hospital that was helpful for me. Hearing and seeing others in person, and outside group lunch with members of group, let me see how fortunate I was, from MVA, and the physical health issues other were living with and seeing their pains in group times, in sitting or standing, and bending over in pain. Keep seeking and you will find a group or one individual to share what is on your mind. Keep moving and talking, 123 Zale

Just opened at 9:40 PM. Any repeat available. Advise how to find and open to view. Thank you.
jjwest—an osteopathic doctor, suggested I reduce Rx Gabapentin with the side effects I informed him I was experiencing. This doctor recommended 100mg 3 times per day and one-300mg at bedtime. This appears to be working for me for about 60 days.
Inflammation is still an issue in my body. I have an appointment with a special nutrition MD, in three days, who gives lectures to other doctors. He Rx several special blood test that took about 5 to 7 days to get results, previously.
I am obese, and following my pulmonary doctor advise, cut my weight from 230/235 lbs to 200/205 following his suggestion. He said eat everything I regularly eat. Only half as much, as often as I can when eating. It wasn’t easy, however it worked for me. Since motor vehicle accident with my anxiety, I have eaten more. However I am holding at 2o5/215 lbs, 20 to 30 lbs less than before MVA.
You should continue to count your blessing, as I do several times per day, that you keep going. GOD BLESS YOU and all of working to be the best in health that we can as we mature.
JJ WEST SOUNDS LIKE A STRONG PERSON. We all work at improving our physical, mental and spiritual lives. We need all three to live fully in this life and to remember to keep moving as much as we can.
Marcia, PT also has helped me, and exercises at home. A few yoga positions or exercises have also helped. I lay on rolled towels under my lumbar area and under my neck or under my head. I place a roller under my knees to relieve back pressure. I can usually fall asleep in about 5 minutes and stay that way for 15 to 45 minutes. Sometimes I do this going to sleep in bed for the night. Recently the Chiropractor suggested I use foam wedges for greater results, his words. Chiropractor says my “S” curves in neck and lumbar are improving.
Balance is another issue. Check with your local county for any balance training they may have by volunteer instructors. Our county has a 6 or 8 week program for seniors. I completed to date 50% of the training to volunteer to teach balance program with other more experienced trainer.
I am just starting to feel peifial neuropathy in my legs and foot at times. About 20 + doctors have preferred not to prescribe any opiates for pain. I had some left from a previous unrelated surgery and took one when I was really in pain. What a help and I pushed myself to do extra work that day and no extra pain was felt. I prefer not to use more at this time. If moderate pain becomes more severe a higher percent of time, I will try more and push for Rx.
I use tens unit and ultrasound units at home on different areas of my body. Chiropractor higher power units also help me.
I’m considering buying a electro pulsed magnetic system and have been after chiropractor to buy a laser unit, that has helped me previously with plantar fascitas issues and severe muscle spasms within three weeks of motor vehicle accident. Treatment were cash. Insurance did not cover.
