My first back surgery was a complete failure. I came out of it in a worse condition than I was before surgery. Second back surgery was very good and I got 8 good years with the results. After eight years I was in terrible pain facing major fusion, according to the orthopedic docs. I did not want to go through surgery again and searched and searched for a non surgical solution. I tried many, many things and nothing made much of a difference.
Then I found the Gokhale Method and I began to notice immediate improvements. I have been pain free for nine + years and am able to be very active and I'm enjoying my life very much. I will be forever grateful for the methods that Esther Gokhale has taught me and I have referred many people to her who are suffering from debilitating back pain.
