How Stiff Joints Are Causing Your Pain

Asset 57
Compressed Nerves

Most of the pain we experience is a response to pressure on our nerves. So, to fix your pain, you need to remove the pressure from those nerves.

But where does that pressure come from?

Asset 56
Compressed NErve in Stiff Joints

The stress on your nerves almost always comes from the joints in your back. That's because the nerves in your neck, back, arms, and legs all start from the joints in your back.

Asset 55
Pain felt in centre of back

Your back is a magnet for stress in the body: It keeps you upright and bears the weight you carry. That stress accumulates as stiffness in the joints in your back, and just as a bicycle chain gets rusty in the rain, the joints in your back get stiff under stress.

Asset 54
Pain spreads around the body

Stiff joints in the back don't just cause pain in the back; the stiffness travels through the fascia to other parts of your body, resulting in headaches, shoulder pain, tennis elbow, tight hamstrings, tight calves, Achilles tendinitis, and much more.
