Since YOU now understand where pain CAN BE coming from—potentially in any connective tissue structure—as opposed to where people are usually TOLD these symptoms are ‘coming from’, let us revisit the issue of ‘the diagnosis’.  Because while you have now heard that stretch-induced small fiber nerve damage, evidenced by tenderness in connective tissue, is a possible cause of body pain, your family doctor, Orthopedic doctor, Neurosurgeon, Rheumatologist, Neurologist, Physical Therapist, Chiropractor, etc. have no idea that this is possible.  The several physicians who sat across from me and my wife, who were evaluating her severe pain, and coming up with no answer, were not aware of this possibility.  The Orthopedic Surgeon who offered me a ’several level fusion’ was not aware of this possibility.  The word ‘ligament’ was never mentioned in our discussions.  Literally thousands of practitioners who evaluated thousands of our patients before I first saw them have not correctly and completely diagnosed the actual cause of pain prior to those patients’ arrival in our office.
