The Gray Method works because:
- It treats your pain once and for all by treating the cause of your pain rather than just the symptoms
- There are no pills, injections, surgeries, or risky treatments
- Numerous studies such as this study prove that physical therapy can save you time and money
When you’ve suffered from pain or an injury without any treatment success, you may begin to make assumptions that you are just “unlucky” or unable to heal with treatment.
But you’re not simply “unlucky.” There are just too many treatments out there that mask symptoms rather than fix the cause of your pain or injury.
Before you give up on injury treatment, check out these common false beliefs that can prevent you from getting well through physical therapy:

“Cursed,” you say? We don’t think so.
You just haven’t found an effective treatment yet.
Medications, injections, supplements, surgeries – does this sound like your life right now? If it does, you’re definitely not cursed. The reason why you aren’t getting better is that these types of treatments are typically unhelpful in fixing the underlying cause of your pain or injury.
Most cases of pain and injuries result from underlying issues such as tightness, weak muscles, or a lack of mobility (how far you can move your joints).
There are a lot of doctors out there that hand out prescriptions or offer injections to “help you feel better.” The problem is that when the prescription runs out or the injection wears off, you will end up right back to where you started.
Seeing a pain management specialist such as a physical therapist is totally different from seeing other types of doctors.
While other doctors’ hand out prescriptions, physical therapists are treating patients with safe and effective solutions such as targeted exercises, stretches, and manual therapy.

We get it. As you grow older, you start to hear more and more of your friends and family members complain about their “aging pains” and you start to believe that pain is just part of the aging process.
It’s easy to fall into the trap of accepting pain as a part of getting older, especially if you hear a lot of your similarly aged peers talk about pain or injuries as a normal part of aging.
You don’t need to accept pain as a side-effect of getting older. When you get the right treatment, you are not only helping yourself but setting an example for your peers.
You’re once doubtful friends and family members may see your recovery and realize they don’t have to accept pain as a part of aging, after all.
