Perry Nickelston, DC, NKT, FMS, SFMA, is a Chiropractic Physician with primary focus on Performance Enhancement, Corrective Exercise, and Metabolic Fitness Nutrition and he runs one of my favorite Instagram accounts – Stop Chasing Pain.

He is one of the leading practitioners in self care education for chronic pain and inflammation, with a focus on lymphatics, blood flow, and the vagus nerve.

If you have any kind of nagging pain or injuries, this is a MUST-LISTEN episode!

Some of the topics Perry and Ryan discuss:

  • Every man over 35 needs to pay attention to THIS!
  • How emotional distress &/or trauma can impact physical health and healing
  • How – and why – we create coping mechanisms that become wired into habits and patterns
  • Why we repeat bad habits – even when we know they’re not “healthy”
  • Pain is an output, not an input. It is protection, not punishment.
  • Pain also means we need a change: We cannot get well in the same environment in which we became ill.
  • Why pain is a sign that body is low on oxygen somewhere
  • Transcending the siloed “systems” approach: the muscular, skeletal, nervous, respiratory & other systems are all interrelated
  • Why the lymphatic system is the new fascia (in terms of fads/focal points)
  • And much, much more
