Treatment Ratings

    Postural Modifications, Gokhale Method
    Discectomy Surgery

I injured my back at 19 years old while at UC Berkeley. Surgery was required to fix the severely ruptured disc. After 15 years the pain had come back and I was in severe pain and surviving by inhaling 2400 MG of Ibuprofen. This strategy was causing intestinal issues. I was dreading a second surgery because the only option was fusion.

My internist recommended that I see Esther Gokhale and after 6 week posture course my life started to change. So two weeks after the course had ended a miracle happened. I woke up and did not need Ibuprofen anymore.

My life has changed! I no longer need to eat Ibuprofen like M&M's

By the way I am in the Health Insurance Industry and hear about back issues everyday. I tell all of my clients the most cost effective and the least intrusive treatment is taking the course.

It is the best money I have ever spent on myself!
