Cutting Edge Techniques for Handling Injuries, Concussions and Improving Performance

Muscles will burn. Joints will ache. Exhaustion will set in. But when your body pleads with you to stop due to pain, your mind can keep you moving. New research suggests that your pain threshold is not set — and that the mind can, to some extent, tolerate pain.

As athletes strive to compete, some measure of discomfort is normal. But at what point does pain limit an athlete’s performance?

Mental tricks, used by elite runners, can actually help you redefine your limit of pain tolerance.

A treatment called PsychoNeuro Pain Response (PNPR™), also known as Talking Away Pain™ (TAP™), has shown promise for injured athletes. Non-invasive and drugless, it helps the athlete to avoid surgery or manipulation.

Sports psychologist,  Raymond J. Petras, Ph.D has helped teams; athletes and coaches improve sports performance and overcome pain. He joins us LIVE on Wednesday, November 6 @ 7PM EST at BEYONDtheCheers on blogtalkradio. Dial-in TOLL FREE 1-877-357-2448 in Canada and United States to ask a question, or email in advance.
