Does your body hurt?  Do you have any idea where your chronic pain may be coming from or rather what may be contributing to it?  If you are hurting, the first place to go is the Dr. and tell your story, get tests, a prescription and sometimes rehabilitation.  Are you all better now?

Medications help with pain, tests sometimes don't say much and after stretching and exercising for a few weeks, you are back with chronic pain that can sideline you for days to years.

My guest today is Dr. William Charschan aka 'the body mechanic'.  He is a Chiropractor in New Jersey and the author of the book we will be talking about today 'Cheating Mother Nature'.  Dr. William believes that everything your body screams at you may be related to how your body 'swings' or as he calls it 'gait'. 

Remember, we are, as I call it, a 'bag of bones, muscles, fluids and soul'.  Think of the body as a balloon, it is held together in a package and when one thing is out of place, the whole system is shifted to compensate.

If you are an athlete and constantly wrapping, iceing, getting injections or having a crisis but also if you are a casual walker or long sitter for work, this talk is STILL for YOU.  If you are in shape or out of shape, your body is shifting and may get stuck, ah, chronic pain.

Dr. Charschan's book can be purchased here and website is here.

No matter your age, pain is not something a pill can take away.  It is your body that wants to balance.  Listen to this lively conversation with Dr. Jeanette and Dr. William.  Let us know your thoughts, check out the show blog listing here.
