Treatment Ratings

    Almost Cured
    Gokhale Method,
    Mattress Change, Meditation, NSAIDs - Anti Inflammatory drugs, Rest, Pilates
    Not Improved
    Supplements, Acetaminophen,

for exercise that does not bother my back, I climb 14 to 21 flights of stairs every workday. The most helpful thing I have tried for back pain relief is the Gokhale method. It was so helpful in just these last 4 weeks, that I plan to use these techniques everyday from this point forward.
