I pride myself on having a very high tolerance for pain. I’m not really the type of person who would always resort to medications when I have body pains. The only time I take oral drugs or use topical solutions is when I can’t bear the discomfort any longer.

A few years ago, I went to see a doctor because I was having a tingling feeling in my right pinky finger whenever I’m working with my hands. It turned out I had arthritis. I was advised to stay away from certain foods, to put hot compress on the affected area, and to apply topical gel twice a day until the pain and swelling subside.

I know there are people out there whose tolerance for pain is too low that the only means to alleviate what they’re feeling is to receive medications. It is a known fact, however, that not all drugs are without side effects. Is it possible to relieve musculoskeletal pain without drugs?

The answer to that question is a resounding yes. Egoscue Inc., a pain management clinic, introduces a unique and highly effective program of providing pain relief. Instead of using drugs, surgery, or manipulation, the Egoscue Method involves stretches and egoscuecises (“e-cises”) that strengthen specific muscles in the body. This serves to properly align the body and help prevent musculoskeletal pain. They have clinics in the U.S., Mexico, and Japan.

This blog was originally put up to document my son’s growing-up milestones, all for posterity’s sake. But there are other things to write about, aside from “mommyhood,” that merit my attention, and I’m including them all here. This blog now chronicles my life as a mom and a wife and everything else in between. For collabs, please email tgfiguerres@yahoo.com.
