Treatment Ratings

    Almost Cured
    Gokhale Method
    NSAIDs - Anti Inflammatory drugs, Physical Therapy, Ice, Acetaminophen (Tylenol), Heat, Walking/Hiking,

I took the Gokhale Method basic 3 day course and found it life changing in terms of my sciatica/back pain. What Esther Gokhale does so well in her book and in the class is to teach on multiple levels - the mind wants to understand why we hurt, the body needs to learn/re-learn posture, movement that is healthy.
