Where are the Integrative Pain Specialists? Does Mayo employ them in their Pain Department?

I have also had some wonderful massage therapists who are trained in cranial sacral release.

Dec 14, 2018 · Restless Leg Syndrome in Sleep Health

I have struggled a lot with restless legs and overall jitters at night. I use tonic water for the quinine….it helps. But I also put two tablets of AlkaSeltzerGold (must be the Gold!) into a glass of water and drink it. The results are oddly amazing. Amazon sells the AlkaSeltzerGold….I buy it by the carton! Try it…you will be so glad you did! Best wishes!

Just two quick ideas….I have some good results with 1) Alka Seltzer Gold – available from Amazon – it resets the pH level in the body; and 2) Tonic water with quinine to help the restless legs. I like to add a little fruit juice to sweeten the sour taste. Both of these seem to help with the shakey quivers that I get due to RD and CRPS. Best wishes…

Mar 19, 2018 · Scoliosis - Introduce yourself and meet others in Spine Health

This is great news to hear! So often, I think that the people who have had successful surgeries move on and enjoy life…and only those still in pain remain on the social media pages telling about their unsuccessful surgeries. You have given many of us encouragement today, John Broward! Best wishes!

Hi, Gailb! Thank you so much for your encouragement and for sharing your experience with me. I have looked into ART before and it seems to be very similar to Rolfing, also called Structural Body Integration – both of which have been extremely helpful for me. The sessions are often very painful and the next day, I have wondered why I was doing that to my body! However, a second day after, I could really feel a positive difference. It was very worth it and I continue to do those stretching exercises at home too. Thanks again fr sharing your story! Best wishes! Vickie

I had surgery in 2005 with Dr. Dudley at Mayo and he has since retired. I now see Dr. Yazemski and he has amazing credentials and a caring personality. My situation needs a full fusion and the chance of increased mobility and decreased pain is low, so I am trying Rolfing, Structural Body Integration, Acupuncture, Physical Therapy, etc to reduce my pain levels. I use a small electric scooter, a Luggie, as walking any distance is almost impossible due to pain.
