While science marshals gene hacks and virtual reality to control pain, in many cases what we most need is day-to-day solutions. BodyGuide is an app built to help you fight pain quickly, using basic exercises. Its list price is $229, but it's on sale now for just $39.99, a drop of 82%!
Stopping Pain With Movement
BodyGuide is built on exercise science and reporting on the effects of exercise on chronic pain. In many cases, pain is due to a lack of strength in specific muscles and muscle groups. If you only rely on one muscle or set of muscles, eventually they'll need backup.
Similarly, the skeletal system relies on the muscles for support. If a muscle isn't up to the task, your body will let you know about it.
Guiding The Way To Relief
BodyGuide sums up this science in some straightforward and simple taps of the app. First, you use the diagnostic quiz, detailing where you feel the problem, and what your range of motion with that particular joint is. Within two minutes, the app will generate a program to follow.
Each program is built on three steps, each of which are taught in short sessions, so it's easy to fit into your day. First, you learn relief, with self-massage techniques and a discussion of anatomy and how it works. Resolve discusses the muscle system and skeletal system and how they're interconnected, introducing a series of simple exercises to begin loosening things up. Finally, the resilience phase moves into strengthening the body, building those groups through exercises, and moving on to a better understanding of yourself.
As you go through the steps, you'll learn more about how your body works and get practical rehabilitation you can do at home. Whether you're managing a problem now, or want to try something non-invasive and safer, BodyGuide can help you better understand how you work as a person.
