Approximately 76.2 million people, one in every four Americans, suffer from pain lasting longer than 24 hours and millions more suffer from acute pain.1  If you include the entire world population, this number is easily quadrupled.

Many pain sufferers rely on pain medications, risking harmful side effects including stomach,  kidney and heart damage.  Others prematurely resort to invasive procedures such as surgery and nerve ablation that involve damaging adjacent structures.  If not treated properly, pain is likely to become chronic (self-perpetuating). offers an alternative to managing pain.  The site was created in 2012 to demonstrate safer, non-drug approaches to treating and sometimes eliminating common forms of musculoskeletal pain.

The Big Picture

The internet is fast becoming a limitless source of information for every human being on the planet.   Some aspects of healthcare can be effectively disseminated via the web, because not all health conditions require a doctor’s prescription or in-office visit.   Many maladies can be managed, cured and prevented using methods teachable online.  This reduces dependency on harmful and questionable medications; encourages personal responsibility for one’s health and leads to longer-term results.

Let’s Connect?

The beauty of social media is that it enables people to quickly share information they find useful and/or interesting.  If you find an article or video on this site useful, please share because there is a very good chance that someone in your circle (or an acquaintance of theirs) can benefit from it–you will be their hero!

Dan Perez, D.C., Editor

About Dr. Dan Perez:  Dr. Perez is a long-time advocate of natural health, even before he knew it.  As a child he resisted taking medicine and developed an aversion to the taste of salty, sugary junk food his well-intended mother provided during his upbringing.   He is an avid reader on the topics of nutrition, exercise, longevity and wellness and incorporates what he reads into his own life.

As a 20 year practicing doctor of chiropractic who has helped thousands of people over his career, Dr. Perez truly understands how structure (one’s spinal alignment, posture, joint movement and muscle strength and responsiveness) affects function (overall health).  His mission is to research, develop and teach self-treatment approaches to pain, and help those who currently suffer from musculoskeletal pain so that they may lead better lives.
