    Almost Cured
    Gokhale Method
    Not Improved
    NSAIDs - Anti Inflammatory drugs, McKenzie Method, Mattress Change, Meditation, Walking/Hiking, Stretching, Heat, Rest, Physical Therapy,
    Strengthening Exercises

Low grade persistent low back pain was really affecting my mood. My muscles were in a persistently bad state and most treatments were only able to provide temporary relief (~a day). Following the Gokhale method of stretch sitting/lying and postural adjustments has improved the condition of my low back muscles, so that I am now able to engage in strengthening exercises, and has also allowed me to get back to increased overall activity levels.
