Treatment Ratings

    Gokhale Method
    Physical Therapy, Stretching, Strengthening Exercises

Recently I was having new pains in my legs and saw a musculoskeletal physical who suggested the problem was related to pressure in L5 disc. She recommended PT. Knowing the likely cause was in my spine I redoubled my application of what I learned in the Gokhale Method Foundation Course and the pains disappeared. If I start to have the pains I immediate focus on keeping my spine in a good position which seems to be the answer.
