Re: Time to re-energise this book and forum!!

Robert (Arbee), I just spent the last hour trying to put together an appropriate reply to your posts only to find that when I went to post it I had been logged out by the system and, therefore, lost the whole thing. (sigh) In any event, thanks for the updates and the kind words of encouragement. Dean

Less than two months, I think. On a side note: Again I have to ask everyone to please not address questions to me. I read all posts, but there just isn't time to answer them these days. Most of the questions I get asked have actually been answered in the books or articles here on the site. You would...

Hi again: I'm aware that you've been dealing with this for 12 years and that your situation is different than the average person. Also, I'm sure you know your back better than anyone and can tell what's working for you and what isn't. That's why I'm not saying you're on the wrong track, but only tha...

Just want to point out that I think you're overdoing it. Based on your original post, you should only need to exercise once a day. Some exercises can be done more often but I believe I point that out in the individual exercise descriptions. (I haven't read my book in years.) Try taking a day or two ...

You are correct. The exercises are for re-hydrating the bulging discs. If the gel has ruptured and is irritating the nerve, it is (if I understand correctly) a chemical irritation not a form of pressure and should resolve itself over time. The body will actually absorb the foreign matter. Both the g...

I have never criticized the concept or theory behind decompression. I'm all for decompression as part of your rebuilding program. I just happen to prefer to do it myself in a gentle, safe, low-impact, natural way. And my beef is not about the money. I don't care what someone else charges for their s...

I wish I could give you definitive answers to your questions but the truth is your doctors are in a better position to do that. However, I don't buy the going to be crippled part. Lots of people have totally lost a disc and they aren't crippled... or even in pain. There's no use worrying about somet...

Hi Josie, The body takes time to heal. Usually far more time than we would like. Reread my articles on herniated discs and pinched nerves for more on this. The bottom line is the disc is probably going to take in the neighborhood of 6 months to fully retract and the pinched nerve is going to take 6 ...

Hi Tbone,

I've been hoping you'd update us on your prolo experience. I'm still leery of that procedure, but glad you're making improvement none the less.

Keep us posted,

A bulging disc would have shown up on your scans and the surgeon should have been able to tell you if you had sciatica or not. It's a basic part of the physical exam they normally do before ordering the scans. If they didn't mention these things, then it's something else. If all the physical therapi...

The "cat" and "squat" should be fine, but I would avoid sit-ups and the lumbar roll.

Hey randolph,

Thanks for the feedback. It's good to have you back posting again. I'm sure a lot of people around here have missed your input.

I know I have.
