Having to work and live with pain can really suck. There are days when I wake up and I have that little stabbing feeling in my lower back that used to really scare me. This meant that my herniated discs would act up. Now, I know how to handle that and I want to share with you an app that has really helped me. Really?
I was at a conference for Corporate wellness (in addition to being the founder of Workvie®, I am also a Certified Corporate Wellness Specialist). There was a presentation on how workers are falling apart from sitting too long, standing too long, driving too long, pretty much anything that you do too much. That’s when the presenter mentionedJointStrong®.
It is an app that helps you to determine your type of pain based on a series of very thoughtful questions. After you answer the questions and do the physical assessments on your phone, it gives you some moves that you can do at home, all by yourself to help you feel better.
The app was created by a group of doctors in the US based on analysis of thousands of patients. They took all this data and formed a board to peer review the information and the recommended assessment and moves.
For my lower back pain, I do the cobra move 10 times while lying on my stomach and it has helped tremendously. First, I apply the Workvie Pain Relief Cream and on days where the pain is stronger, I layer on the Workvie Vegan Lidocaine Roll On. The I lay on my exercise mat and do the move. I feel better right away and it lasts throughout the day.
I hope you check out this app and let us know how it goes in the comments. It is truly the only app you need for pain relief. Workvie is not affiliated with Joint Strong, but I just love how much they have helped me and thought I would share this app for pain relief with you.
