Treatment Ratings

    Gokhale Method
    NSAIDs - Anti Inflammatory drugs

The Gokhale Method has been a lifesaver. I had problems with neck and back pain prior to this and was told by my Orthopedic Surgeon that there was osteoarthritis and there was nothing I could do - it would just get worse. I searched and found the Gokhale Method - met with Esther Gokhale and took the entire class series. In 3 days I started to feel better. I hae continued with the exercises and used the chair and stretch cushion and no longer have back pain. It has been life changing and I would highly recommend this. The Gokhale Method is a more natural way and helps us to get back to our normal healthy posture
