Pain is something many people carry around with them each and every day. At some point, the pain they experience becomes a way of life and they start believing it’s something they’ll always have to live with. Maybe you’re one of those people. Maybe you know someone like this. If so, then you need to stop being a pain who believes they'll always be in pain. Learn more misconceptions below and how you can find relief in your feet.

7 Top Pain Myths—What's Actually True And What You Need To Stop Believing ASAP

Here are 7 popular theories on pain—and the facts you need to know to avoid making your symptoms worse.

Theory #1: Weather can affect pain.

The facts: If your joint pain gets worse when it's cold or raining, it's not your imagination. Although studies have shown mixed results, changes in barometric pressure can cause some people—especially people with arthritis—to have increased pain in their joints. Experts think this is because the change in barometric pressure affects joint pressure. When the weather heats up, or a "high pressure system" moves in, the increase in barometric pressure usually brings relief.

Theory #2: Rest is good for back pain.

The facts: Apart from post-injury recovery, most experts say complete bed rest is one of the worst things you can do for back pain. If you're not active, your body quickly becomes deconditioned—causing even more pain when you eventually do move. Stretching, yoga, and strength exercises can all help lessen your pain. Just watch out for these 9 exercises that could pump up your back pain.

Have you been believing any of the myths above? It’s especially important to remember that even minor pain shouldn’t be ignored. If you’re experiencing body pain – especially in your feet, knees, hips, back and neck – you may be able to find relief with a simple yet effective procedure that corrects misalignment in your feet. By aligning your feet, you align the rest of your body, and will be able to do things you couldn’t while living with pain day in and day out.

The treatment is called HyProCure®, a small titanium stent that is placed into the naturally occurring space between your ankle bone and heel bone (called the sinus tarsi) to keep the talus – the bone above the sinus tarsi – in a stable position as nature intended, and keep the ankle bone from sliding forward and off the heel bone.

This treatment is something you can trust. Learn more from patients who have received HyProCure® here or download the free eBook below.
