Exercise is Medicine

The Pain Free Program. A Proven Method to Relieve Back, Neck, Shoulder and Joint Pain


Are You Tired of Living In Pain?Pain Free


If you’re one of the 35 million Americans who experience restrictions in their daily life due to chronic pain, then chances are you’ve lived with it for quite some time. 

Most people do. 


When our bodies are injured, whether it’s a back, knee, neck, or even wrist injury, our bodies automatically start compensating for the injury and learning ways to “cope” with the pain.

Has Medicine Temporarily Dulled Your Pain, But Not Eliminated It?

We go to the doctor, get some anti-inflammatory drugs, and believe that the medicine will just make the pain go away.  Problem solved.

The trouble with this scenario is that the pain rarely just “goes away.”  It certainly doesn’t go away for good.

It often gets worse, and we have to take more and more medication to make it stop.  Soon, even that stops working. 

Does It Seem Like No Matter What You Try, Nothing Works?

In the meantime our body is changing to compensate for the injury, becoming unbalanced and creating even more stress as it becomes increasingly off-kilter.

It’s a snowball effect, and the root of the problem is rarely addressed.

You Can Eliminate Your Pain, Without Medication

The Pain Free Program can show you how.

In this book …

  • You will learn how to assess and treat the underlying cause of your pain rather than simply trying to fix the symptom area alone. 
  • Anthony Carey will provide you with an individualized program for your specific body form, complete with a customized exercise routine designed to eliminate your pain. 
  • You can choose from one of three programs for your Form, to further personalize your exercise program.

"For decades orthopedists and neurosurgeons told me I'd simply have to put up with my bad back.  Anthony Carey told me otherwise.  I've been living pain free ever since."

Parvez Mahmood, M.D., F.A.C.S. 

Here’s Just A Sampling Of What’s Covered In This Breakthrough Book:

  • You’ll learn the full range of pain sources and the typical "hot zones" where pain tends to occur and why (so you can identify where YOUR pain is coming from)
  • Discover what the 6 major body forms are and learn how to identify which one is yours (this is your key to becoming pain-free!)
  • Learn customized programs designed to restore your body to proper function and eliminate pain your pain (so you can get on with your life)
  • Over 100 photographs and illustrations that demonstrate how to do these simple corrective exercises, including the appropriate exercise positions, techniques and modifications (so you can do them correctly in the privacy of your own home)

"With my businesses I have been around the world of orthopedics for many years.  So when my wife Barbie went to see Anthony Carey at Function First for her shoulder problem, I had my doubts about their approach.  Once I saw the incredible results she had, I had to try it out for myself.  And now I am a believer too.  Read this book and open your eyes to a world of possibilities and hope for helping your aches and pains."

Greg Nelson, Co-founder and Board of Directors Bregg Orthopedics 

Not Only That, This Book Also Reveals How You Can Prevent Future Injuries

    "Anthony Carey scores a bull’s eye! Since we are all different, how can we expect the same therapy program to work for everybody? We can't. This book clearly describes the basic differences between us, allowing you to customize a therapy program that will get you well along the road to recovery. Striving for a pain-free lifestyle is a goal we all want to achieve, and this book is a powerful tool to help you attain that goal."

    Bradford Stiles, M.D., Medical Director California Sports & Industrial Medical Center

Anthony Carey explains these concepts in-depth and provides easy-to-follow exercises to maintain, regain, or prevent loss of physical mobility - the basic principles of Function First. I have sent many friends and associates to Function First, and the result has been lots of happy, pain-free bodies. I'm grateful to have found this wonderful program, which has helped me stay healthy and strong."

    Judi Sheppard Missett, Jazzercise Founder and CEO
