    My lower back pain was cured in 2011-12 with the Gokhale method. However, 1.5 years ago I had a rib injury, that I was unable to recover from. As recently as yesterday, I learned, with a Gokhale Method postural assessment, that my posture had deteriorated. I am now signed up for another Gokhale Method Foundation Course, and will report back with results.

    My exercise routine consists of 1/2 hour of weight bearing exercise and a 40 minute walk, at least 5 days per week.

    My lower back pain started about 20 years ago. At that time it was significant preventing me from walking more than a few steps before needing to stop and stretch my back. after about 6 months it eventually went away. Since then I have had similar but much shorter episodes maybe a couple of times a year. I have always been able to relieve any pain by stretching, like childs pose. The current issue I am experiencing has been going on for a few months. Stretching relieves any pain but it comes back quickly if I am on my feet. I am familiar with the Gokhale method but so far have not been a very good practitioner.
