Treatment Ratings

    Gokhale Method
    Not Improved
    NSAIDs - Anti Inflammatory drugs, Rest, Heat, Mattress Change,

I spent years trying to get help with lower back pain. Every morning my back was very stiff and I couldn’t bend down to pick anything up off the floor. It improved during the day but was back again every morning. I tried resting, exercising more, exercising less, changing my mattress, ibuprofen, GP, osteopath, chiropractor, Chinese medicine, but nothing helped. Finding the Gokhale Method has changed my life. From the Gokhale Method Foundation Course and book (8 Steps to a Pain-Free Back) I now clearly know how to sit, stand, walk and bend in ways that help my back rather than hurt my back. I no longer have any pain, even after gardening, and I feel young again.
