Hello. I’m Brian Rothbart. As a man, I’ve lived with agonizing chronic pain. I know how it feels. I know the feelings of hopelessness and despair that accompany it.
And as a doctor, I’ve spent more than 40 years in clinical research, working to understand the source of chronic pain and how to cure it.
Let me tell you my own story.
And as a doctor, I spent more than 40 years in clinical research, working to understand the source of chronic pain and how to cure it. Let me tell you my story:
As a child, my body was inflexible. By the time I reached my teens, my muscles became even tighter and stiffer. As I entered my 30s, this stiffness became worse and it was harder to stand for long periods of time without feeling achy in my low back. By the time I reached my 40s, I needed to sit in supportive chairs and sleep on hard mattresses to help ease the stiffness in my low back and now also in my shoulders and neck.
I ignored all these early warning signs because I wasn’t yet in chronic pain.
Then my life took a drastic turn. On March 17, 1991, at 6:30am, on my way to work at the medical clinic, I was hit by a bus which took off the front end of my car.
I was diagnosed as having severe whiplash, placed in a neck collar and sent home with instructions to take a week off from work. After the collar was removed, I found that the stiffness in my neck and shoulders had become much more severe. I was prescribed pain medication and referred to a physical therapist.
My pain became worse and worse with each passing month. My entire body started feeling so weak that I no longer had the physical stamina to see my patients eight to ten hours a day and was forced to reduce my work schedule. My wife filed for divorce because I could no longer afford to maintain the lifestyle that she had become accustomed to.
I started having other problems. It was impossible to drive without experiencing excruciating low back pain. If I lifted my hands over my shoulders, they would go to sleep. I couldn’t sleep at night because of the pain. I started having headaches.
I went to one of the finest surgeons in the state. He suggested surgical decompression of the nerves in my back and fusion of the vertebrae. Through my own medical training, I realized the risks and poor outcome of this type of surgery, so instead turned to alternative therapies to try and resolve my chronic pain.
Over the next 12-18 months, I saw over 15 different types of alternative healthcare providers and an occupational counselor to handle the impact that my injury was having on my career. The effect of all this was marginal. My pain continued to escalate. It became obvious that the only person who could help me overcome this nightmare was me.
Though I had already spent many years in chronic pain research, I was now motivated more than ever, in order to resolve my own personal suffering.
After years of hard work, persistence, determination and just plain stubbornness of not wanting to give up, I discovered a common source of chronic muscle and joint pain. With this information, I found a way to eliminate my own pain and then went on to develop a therapy which has permanently eliminated chronic muscle and joint pain in thousands of my patients.
