I know what you are going through.
I understand the confusion, anger, and depression that chronic yet undiagnosed pain can cause.
My name is Neal Hallinan and while I have over twelve years of experience in the fields of massage, Postural Restoration, and strength and conditioning, I had over 20 years of experience with just the type of pain that you are probably feeling right now.
From fourteen to thirty-five years of age my body was in a state of almost continuous breakdown. Even when I wasn’t going through one of my frequent episodes of debilitating pain, I rarely felt good. As an athletic teenager, I was told it was growing pains.
But it wasn’t.
As a desk-bound twenty-something IT worker (but not unhealthy or overweight) things got worse and no one had any explanation.
I was bewildered by what was happening to my body, how it was that I was still relatively young yet experiencing debilitating foot and lower back pain that made standing and walking unbearably painful.
What was the origin of the intense neck spasms that left me incapacitated for days?
“You are in good shape, you shouldn’t be in pain”.
But I was.
No one in my life understood or related to what I was going through. It was lonely and isolating.
Unable to imagine any hope of improvement, just many years of misery ahead of me, I fell into numerous deep depressions.
Finally, in 2012 I found the Postural Restoration Institute and my life changed instantly. I discovered that the source of my pain was the improper alignment, or posture, of my pelvis, spine, and ribcage.
Just like improper alignment of a car will result in wear and tear, improper alignment of our pelvis, spine, and ribcage results in dysfunctional muscle function and pain.
It turns out that these postural alignment issues are completely fixable because it is our muscle’s unbalanced “behavior” that causes them.
This unbalanced muscle function is what causes skeletal misalignment and ultimately pain.
Now I use what I’ve learned about alignment and muscle function to help other suffering people resolve the mysterious pain that doctors can’t figure out.
My mission in life is to help others with their pain so they can stop trying to survive from day-to-day and get back to living!
I’ve done it, and so can you.
