Blog Talk with Lori Duncan – Do You Deadlift? (Episode 3)

Thanks for listening! ~Lori

Muscle Atrophy: Unexplained Body Pain

Muscle Atrophy: Unexplained Body Pain

The X-ray is normal. The MRI is negative. Every doctor visit leads you to more confusion and less answers as they say: “I’m not sure why you’re in pain.” So, they move you along. Not because they don’t care, but likely because they may not know. If the diagnostic tests, medical screens, blood work-up and… Continue Reading
