Treatment Ratings

    Almost Cured
    Gokhale Method

Chronic lower back pain had forced me out of my wood shop -- I could not stay bent over a workbench more than 3 minutes at a time. I could still function on a construction site as long as I kept moving. I was heading towards surgery when I discovered the Gokhale book. 3 months later I was back at work in the shop. I have to keep working at the stretching or it stiffens back up -- but the simple stretching and posture exercises have given me a non-invasive tool to stay not only functional, but feeling strong and years younger than I am.
