I am interested in the Diagnosis and Natural Therapy treatments of Chronic Low Back Pain, Fibromyalgia, Migraine, Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS), Temporal Mandibular Disorder (TMD), Thoracic Outlet Syndrome (TOS), Sciatica, Chronic Pelvic Pain, Interstitial Cystitis (IC), "Endometriosis", and other Chronic Pain Disorders. In 2007, I attended the 6th Interdisciplinary Congress on Low Back and Pelvic Pain in Barcelona to present my study of pelvic girdle disorders. At this meeting, I met Dr. Andry Vleeming and studied his discoveries about sacroiliac joint function and disorder. I also met Dr. Vert Mooney, Professor Emeritus of Orthopedics, University of California at San Diego and studied his sacroiliac joint investigations. The work of these men and my own clinical observations have shown me that the sacroiliac joint has a normal range of motion, and is susceptible to injury more readily than was taught in medical school. Modern methods enable doctors to prove that this joint is unstable and a pain generator. An unstable sacroiliac joint causes the overlying body tower to lean to one side, which imposes significant mechanical stress on muscles, tendons, ligaments, and fascia of the upper body tower; leading to evolution of several Chronic Pain Disorders. An unrecognized mechanical force parameter is body weight motivated by the ambient gravitational field. My theories and practices can be reviewed on-line in Practical Pain Management, September 2009 issue, "Sacroiliac Joint Disorder", and within my e-Book, Pain Syndromes; free at Quora.com.
