Treatment Ratings

    NSAIDs - Anti Inflammatory drugs, McKenzie Method, Strengthening Exercises, Other, Heat, Supportive Shoes, Brace, Rest, Physical Therapy, Walking/Hiking,

Mckenzie Method works great for my neck - used many, many times.
Mckenzie Method is working great for my back, when I finally was really careful to use most of its many techniques and advice points pretty much properly.
Also, I believe being more properly in line with my Heavenly Father's plan, is probably the most important aspect to my recovery of all.
In addition, rest, heat, temporary avoidance of bending, lifting; also continued physical activity gradually increasing, improved posture, limited sitting, standing, lumbar supports, proper posture in getting into and out of bed and when lifting, etc (God, Mckenzie, Posture, Activity and ...)
