    You are asking questions about the "past week", but the answers are not reflective of the
    back pain I have suffered simply because I completed the Gokhale Method foundation course a few weeks ago and my condition has dramatically improved as a result. I've gone from crawling around the house and not being able to drive, to being almost fully functional once again and walking three miles a day since completing the course. I cannot recommend this course highly enough.
