Fantastic Frank!!!! Bet it's going to be very special to SIT DOWN for Thanksgiving meals next week!!
No one answered your last question - why is the sky blue. Perhaps because the wind blue?

Thanks Y'all for the posts. There have been some pretty bleak days the last 6 weeks; having your encouragement to come back to here REALLY helps. And sometimes it takes reading your advice 20 times (I kid you not) before the little light goes on above my head and I see what y'all are talking about. ...

Hi DG So very glad you've found this website. Please read Dean's articles on chiropractic "care". I think you'll find some rather overwhelming evidence that the front doors of chiropractor offices should have a big WARNING sign on them, warning all who enter that they could likely be injured, even s...

Thanks KRD and James/Jason for the feedback. The last week have been taking it slower and gentler, as you recommended. Last 4 days no NCAIDs! Standing up a bit more, with a little less pain, each day. Still very little flexibility w/ exercises ... but do what I can. Chompin' at the bit to do a bit o...

progress (sort of ) report

Hopin for feedback after my first week trying the RYB basic exercises. Especially from KRD as it appears your recovery/rebuilding process may be model for mine. 1. Been 4 weeks since chiro reinjured L4-L5/sciatic complex. If he exacerbated a ligament, most ligament/tendon healing likely mostly done,...

hello Brice Your pleas for HELP!!! have not gone unnoticed. Bill had some good stuff to relay and my major point here will be to encourage you to download RYB and the Pain Manual and let that info sink in along with the soothing (hopefully) heat and ice you've probably got on your back as you lie in...

Hello Fred - The much freer, much less impeded flow of information that the internet allows will surely doom any idiocy like chiropractry that tries to pass itself off as compentency. This forum, like the millions of other internet places where people can exchange information without the constraint ...

Hello Mary - Thanks for making the effort to send us your incredible success story. You're not the only one who contemplated suicide during those long, horrible nights alone with too much pain. I really don't want to have another one of those nights again, either! So you can bet each morning from no...

Hey Fred Good to read that "nothing works but rebuilding." Too bad you had to be the guinea pig for so much malpractice (ignorant-practice?), but so good that you weren't hurt so bad that you couldn't heal and rebuild. I had just a couple, several week sessions with the chiros after 2, minor OTJ inj...

Hi Frank The previous replies all say some good things - in case you're a die hard scoffer like me, read them over a few times till the info sinks in. All I can add is: have you downloaded The Pain Relief Manual? In case you haven't, don't miss the chapter on the 30-3-30 water treatment. It sounded ...

Bill and KRD: thanks so very much for the encouragement and advice. This AM after reading Bill's post, took some naproxen sodium to dull the pain and attempted the RYB beginning exercises. Still too much pain. So downloaded Dean's Pain book. And did the beginning beginning exercises thruout the afte...
