Hi el, Yes, you're right, the advanced neck exercises are strengthening exercises according to the descriptions in the book so you should probably do them every other day. Some of them are pretty low impact so you could do them every day if you wanted to, but like Jeanette says, since you're doing s...

Hi again,

Some really good advice from Randolph. I seem to learn something new every time I read through the books again. Taking notes helps too.

I do stretches and mobilization everyday. Strenthening exercises every other day.

Hi el, Thanks for elaborating more on what you're trying to deal with. I'm glad Dean jumped in and answered your questions because I was a little unsure what exactly to tell you. As usual, he came to the rescue with some good sound, common-sense advice. I think the recommendation of finding a good s...

Hi Tina, I was going to suggest an orthopedic back cushion for your car but a better car seat is also a good idea. We've actually done both. I have used an orthopedic cushion for several years and I like it. It's all mushed down to fit my back now, but even when it was new it made a big difference. ...

Hi el, Welcome to the group. I'm not sure what you mean by your pelvis still feels lopsided. Could you elaborate on that more? Is this just a feeling or is it a definite pelvic tilt that you can see in the mirror? Also, I couldn't tell from your post if you're in the midst of dealing with an acute e...

Hi Tina, Welcome to the group. I apologize for the angry chiropractor who was so busy trying to start a fistfight that he didn't even bother to notice that you're a woman. :roll: First let's focus on the good news: The fact that your ortho isn't recommending surgery means the herniation is relativel...

Hi Jeanette, I'm not familiar with SIJ so I can't really comment on that. I think the RYB program should work for it since it's an overall back rebuilding program and several of the advanced exercises include the hips and pelvis. You might also want to look at the Pain Relief Manual book it's really...

Hi guys, I've been wondering where everybody was, too. Thought maybe we'd cured back pain and could all go home. :lol: Randolph, I have no doubt that the chiropractor injured you. Whether or not you could sue is another question. I'm sure you could. But whether or not you'd win is the question. You'...

Hi GeeDub, Welcome to the group. I agree with randolph you're on the right track to see a real doctor right away to find out if what you're dealing with is serious or not. Kidney problems are just one of many things that can cause lower back pain and only a real doctor can diagnose those real medica...

Hi again Annie, Yeah, two weeks wasn't long enough on the basic exercises. I think Dean recommends a full month. I would suggest that if you are still having pain that you drop back and start over on just the basics and see if you can't beat the pain before moving on. You sound like a very motivated...

Hi rosita,

I agree with Paul. Get a second opinion on those steroids. Doesn't sound like the right treatment to me.

Hi Annie, There is no exact time frame for how long it will take you. It's different for every person. You didn't mention whether you're dealing with sciatica (pinched nerve) or just ordinary back pain (such as a torn ligament). If just back pain, you should be totally free of pain before you move o...

Hi guys, Boy, I leave for a couple of weeks and the place falls apart... But seriously, Steven I don't think Brice meant that the first half of the book was worthless. Although when you read his post it comes across that way. After all, he recommends the book and I doubt he would do that if he thoug...

Hi Meg,

I have to agree with Bill. You need to try rebuilding your back before you do anything else. Especially before you do something drastic like surgery.

I didn't have back pain for 24 years, but it solved my back problems and it's not as difficult as it may sound.
