Techniques-Train Your Mind, Heal Your Body

In a recent Arizona Republic article, Bob Young reported on Mets outfielder Eric Young Jr. using hypnosis to train his mind. “I wanted to make sure we get everything covered from head to toe, including the brain,” said Young.

In another article <http://telemedicine.arizona.edu/blog/telemedicine-sports-pot>, a mental technique called PsychoNeuro Pain Response™ (PNPR™) also called Talking Away Pain™ (TAP™) is used to safely and quickly to eliminate an athlete’s ankle pain, concussion symptoms and breast biopsy surgery pain, even at a distance using “POT.”*

Stress Not A Bulging Disc May Be The Cause of Tiger Woods’ Back Pain?

A safe, non-invasive technique called PsychoNeuro Pain Response™ (PNPR™) or Talking Away Pain™ (TAP™) could most likely help Tiger, if he knew about it.

Tiger Woods has a bulging disc in his back that will not require surgery, according to Jeff Rude of GolfWeek.

That’s good news because it probably would not be successful and is most likely not the problem. Research below reports that structural abnormalities are not the cause of back pain.

Research – As reported in…

1994…the New England Journal of Medicine by Maureen Jensen…conclusion:  “The discovery by MRI of bulges or protrusions in people with low back pain may frequently be coincidental…”  all diagnosed with TMS (Tension Myositis Syndrome).

1976…Almost all of the structural abnormalities of the spine are harmless.  p. 100 …Dr. Alf Nachemson of Sweden, “The Lumbar Spine: An Orthopedic Challenge,” 1976 in Spine (V1, p. 59) the cause of back pain was unknown in the majority of cases and almost all should be treated nonsurgically.

1985…H.L. Rosomoff, neurosurgeon, lumbar disc herniations are responsible for low back and leg pain in fewer than 3 percent of cases…treats nonsurgically…Rosmoff, H.L. ”Do Herniated Discs Produce Pain?  Advances in Pain Research and Therapy (Vol. 9), edited by H.L. Fields et al. NY; Raven Press, 1985… (p.71 MBP)

There are many more studies.

Athlete Uses POT To Heal Injury

Head Football Coach Wallace is interviewed on his use of a mental trainer and POT (plain old telephone) to safely speed healing and improve the performance of his injured players.

One player was on crutches. After some time on the telephone, he walked out of the coach’s office, crutches in hand and ran with the team that night. Read how he does it.

Brain Trauma In Retired NFL Players

Former NFL players performed close to normal on a tricky logic problem that relies on spatial perception and planning. Functional MRI (fMRI) testing uncovered changes that the behavioral test missed. Also, the timing in other brain regions was off. The more injuries they had, the more pronounced the differences.

Also, hits on the field can cause repeated mild traumatic brain injury, which puts players at risk for neurological problems later in life. (Adrian Owen, University of Western Ontario, Canada–October 17 in Scientific Reports – Laura Sanders Science News/Body & Brain)

PNPR™ has been shown to safely eliminate the concussion symptoms of headaches, nausea and dizziness.

Concussion Risks For Young Athletes, Treatment

Concussion studies in young athletes gaining wider focus nationally*

  1. Little is known about risks for young athletes.
  2. It’s not clear if better headgear is the answer.
  3. In high school and college concussion rates are higher for:
    1. Males-football, ice hockey, lacrosse.
    2. Females-soccer, lacrosse, basketball.

There is a gap in information in concussion rates before high school. The report recommends a national system to better track sports-related concussions.

Also, the report stresses wearing proper safety equipment. However, there  is little evidence that current helmet designs, face masks and other gear really prevent concussions.
