#53: Addressing Joint or Muscular Pain & Elliot Hulse’s Meditation Camp

November 27, 2018

Muscular, tendon or joint pain can be so restrictive and uncomfortable, and can often lead us to believing we are ageing and/or broken. That it’s a fact of life that needs accepting, or something like surgery is needed.

However, a huge percentage of body pain is reversible, and is a message that there is some dysfunction or imbalance in the body that needs addressing. Work out the root cause, do some corrective strength and mobility work, and much more often than expected, you can return to full and pain free function. 

If you want to know more, this is the episode for you. 

Here’s what we cover in this Episode:
