The Yass Method is the only true method for diagnosis and treating chronic pain. It works by interpreting the symptoms the body is presenting to identify which tissue is eliciting the pain. This is a stark contrast to the existing model of using MRI findings which simply find structural abnormalities that exist as a result of improper forces running through joints including the spine causing a progressive and slow decay which in most cases never creates pain. This why treatment of these structural variations such as herniated discs, stenosis, arthritis and meniscal tears does not resolve pain. A false narrative has been created over the past 30 years that these variations do cause pain and has justified the use of this false mechanism.
The Yass Method has been used over 20 years to resolve the pain of thousands including those who were scheduled for surgeries who never received them as well as those who had surgery that did nothing to resolve the pain. All evidence points to the fact that in 90% of cases of pain, the cause is muscle weakness or imbalance. These types of causes will not show up on any diagnostic test nor is there any medical practice designed to identify these types of causes. The Yass method can do so by interpeting the body's symptoms and determining if they are caused by muscle, bone or nerves.
The entire basis of the MRI is a correlative connection between pain and a structural variation identified for the first time while pain exists. The reality is that the structural variation existed prior to the pain beginning and an MRI performed even a year before would show the same structural variation. Also as many people without pain can be found to have the same exact structural variations in the same percentages clearly proving the structural variations are not the cause of pain. Finally muscular causes will never show up on diagnostic tests nor is there any medical specialty educated or trained to identify and treat these courses. Therefore if a muscular cause is creating your pain and a structural variation is identified you will be taken down the false path of treating the structural variation. Chronic pain can only exist due to missed diagnosis. If the correct tissue in distress is identified and treated at its inception of distress when pain is initially emitted, then pain would only exist in the acute phase.
The campaign will be used to fund the creation of various types of content so people have the opportunity to get the information they need to resolve their pain, the use of media to create awareness of the Yass method and why is must replace the existing failing and invalid system and the creation of tools so other medical practitioners can be trained to perform the Yass method so as many people in the shortest time can get to use the method to properly diagnose their pain and resolve it.
The global population is in the midsts of a pain medication crisis. People are addicted at all ages and some are even dieing due to overdose. The wrong questions are being asked. It is not how we control the use of pain medications that needs to be addressed. It is the reality that so many people are in pain because they are not being diagnosed properly which leads to the long term use of narcotic medication. Misdiagnosis occurs because the existing model of using diagnostic tests to identify the cause of pain will almost always lead to a false diagnosis. This needs to stop now. I developed my method 20 years ago. It is theoretically, clinically and scientifically irrefutable. Now it is time to put it place of the existing system and create one, unified method to identify and treat pain just as cardiology or dermatology has one standard.
Thank you for listening and hopefully seeing the future now.
