REST!!!!

I agree with Karen. I hurt my back and had my first sciatic flare up in April of this year. It hurt big time. I tried to stretch and do the exercises in the book, but it didn't help in the beginning. I too could not sit too long so I tried to work from home as much as possible and could move around ...

Sorry to see you go

Sorry to see you leaving. I too found that there was far to little response to my posts. I have been trying to do the stretches and the strengthening, but I have not been very agressive yet. My back has good days and bad days. I hope that it gets better soon. If you have the name of the natural supp...

Vitamins

Hey Pete I have been taking Gloucosamine and Condroitin with MSN for years. It is the best supplement you can take in my opinion. I have a friend that had both hips replaced by a leading joint replacment doctor in Philadelphia and that doctor told him that if they knew 10 years ago what they know to...

Pain relief manual

Has anybody tried this book? If so, how do you think it is? I was wondering if I should try this book. I already ordered the Rebuild your Back book and like it. Any help would be appreciated.
