Re: 18 Year old with 4 months of lower back pain! :(

I gained muscle mass, looked alot better, and felt better about myself. As I began increasing weights, I noticed I hurt my back when I lowerd a 100LB Barbell without bending my knees. I continued to work out only to notice my lower back would feel aggrivated and such. Hi TJ -- It's great that you'v...

I think MD's likes to refer for PT as they can control all aspects of the PT's care. Actually, Hugo, in some states (Colorado is one) PTs "practice" in the same sense that DCs do. The patient does not did to have a physician referral--the sticking point for both individuals and PT services is often...

There are some good chiropractors ... there are some bad chiropractors. So to call all DCs bad because of those who are incompetent, would be as bad as calling all DCs good because the few you have experience with have been good. The point is: BEWARE! Get educated so you can recognize the "red flag...

Re: anterior thigh pain

Mike -- Your self-diagnosis may be on the mark, but if the pain's getting worse, it's probably worth a trip to your GP -- just to rule out anything else. If you're due -- or overdue? -- for a physical, make an appointment and mention it then. And tell your doctor that you have an exercise program yo...

Well said, All -- The only thing I'd add is that once you get well into Dean's program of rebuilding, which is really quite complete, you might consider adding pilates to your regimen. I suggest this because the focus there is on core-posture-core which, given the kind of lifting you do on a daily b...

Hi again, Conchita -- I'm delighted to hear that you're able to stand up and walk around more -- even sit. Great! :D Although bedrest is sometimes necessary, under most circumstances the shorter you can make that part of the healing the better. As you point out, acupuncture -- unlike drugs and manip...

Glad to see you changed the heading of this forum. While I'm no fan of chiropractic, I did think it set the wrong tone. I'd much rather see more posts like this one that randolph made. JJ Hi All -- Dean, I'd like to echo the others who prefer the new title for this discussion topic. I've had three ...

Hi All -- Interesting discussion about mind/body connection and Sarno's book. Haven't read the book and am unlikely to :( as my must-read stack of books may outlive me as it is :lol: But, that's never stopped me from offering an uninformed opinion before :oops: If as you point out, Dean, Sarno concl...
