    McKenzie Method, Physical Therapy

I am happy to have found the Gokhale Method (postural modification course) which helped me cure my back pain. My back pain was never diagnosed more specifically than 'chronic lower back pain'. My doctor ordered PT which was not effective. The PT used the McKenzie Method and a few other techniques. I also had some assistance from a chiro which was somewhat helpful. Before I found the Gokhale Method I also had some improvement with yoga, specifically certain very specific strengthening and stretching techniques.
