I can accept questions that relate to chronic or acute pain caused by muscle spasms and contractions. Repetitive Strain Injury is actually Cumulative Trauma to muscles. Releasing the spasm &/or contraction will relieve the strain that is felt at the insertion point on the bone. I am the co-developer of the unique safe-stretching program "Focused Flexibility Training," which combines easy instruction for self-treating spasms throughout your body with proven yoga stretches. I have recently authored two new books: "The 15 Minute Back Pain Solution," and "The Secret to Your Best Golf Game EVER!
Since 1989 I have been working with endurance athletes and individuals suffering from chronic pain conditions. I have authored seven self-treatment books and three self-treatment DVDs and I have developed the Julstro System for the treatment of carpal tunnel syndrome, Trigger Finger, and other Hand/Wrist pain. I am a national and international presenter at conventions, seminars, and workshops. Principle topics are "Work Shouldn't Hurt," and "The Pain Free Athlete." In 2005 and 2006 I was the massage therapist for ultracyclists competing in the Race Across America (RAAM) 3000+ mile race from San Diego, CA to Atlantic City, NJ. I've taught the Julstro techniques to physical therapists at the Cleveland Clinic, to massage therapists in areas around the USA, and I've taught Julstro self-treatment clinics to dancers at Juilliard School of Performing Arts (NYC),the sprinting team at NC State, and I am working closely with several Olympic-hopeful. We have successfully eliminated the repetitive strain injuries that could keep them out of the Olympic Games, and the best part is they know how to do the self-treatments so they can stay pain-free and flexible.

Privacy prevents me from filling in this section without prior consent from my clients. Life Experience: I have been specializing in the treatment of chronic pain and sports injuries since receiving my NY massage license in 1989. A personal bout with carpal tunnel syndrome was the catalyst to my developing a self-treatment that heals the symptoms of carpal tunnel syndrome quickly and without surgery. My work with endurance athletes was the inspiration to teach people how to self-treat so they could stop pains even during a race or heavy training day. Both of these situations ultimately became the products that are sold on my websites: http://www.FlexibleAthlete.com and http://www.julstro.com. I currently treat people in my offices in Sarasota, FL, Cary, NC, or Pearl River, NY
I love working with people! My personal experience with conditions such as frozen shoulder, sciatica, and especially with carpal tunnel syndrome, has shown me that muscle contractions are the primary cause of most joint pains, and that only deep muscle therapy worked to release the strain that was being placed on the joints/nerves.
I love learning about the body, and how it works and sharing that knowledge with others. Many conditions that are called by other names (i.e., bursitis, arthritis, etc.), but respond extremely well to deep muscle therapy. I am working toward my goals to teach self-treatment techniques worldwide and earn my Master's Degree in Anatomy.
Massage is truly the oldest medical profession. When the caveman was hunting the mammoth beast, after running after it, hunting it down, carving it up, and dragging it back to the cave - surely his muscles hurt and someone rubbed his shoulders!
Muscles are rarely considered when a person is seeking the source of pain. Often people suffer needlessly from low back pain, trigger finger, joint pain, headaches, etc . It's so logical! Just as pulling your hair makes your scalp hurt, so can a muscle pulling on a joint cause pain and limited mobility. You don't need drugs or surgery to stop the pain, you simply need to release the tight muscles.

Hi Chris, There are three muscles of your lower leg that will cause the pain pattern you are describing. The first is your tibialis anterior and the second is your peroneals, and the last are the muscles
Hi Hayden, Wonderful! Please wish your mom the very best from me. I believe she's going to not only overcome this situation, but because of what she'll learn in my eBook, she'll ultimately help someone
Hi Hayden, I'm so glad to hear that your mother is finding encouragement, that's so important to her healing. Did you go to http://www.julstro.com? I wrote a book titled "Treat Yourself to Pain-Free
Hi Hayden, I am always of the thinking that something can be changed and that it is never too late. That may be a bit Pollyanna, but I've seen miracles such as a man named Morris Goodman who was paralyzed
Hi Nitin, In answer to your question about eliminating spasms, the response is "YES." I'm happy to say that when you eliminate the cause of spasms, they do release. Most of the time spasms are caused
