  1. Thank god someone has made some sense of the back pain epidemic. When medical practices stop looking for correlation between pain and physical problems, a lot of medical issues can be solved. Perhaps in the future, our dear doctors will stop with their nonsensical behaviour and actually consider psychosomatic reasons for their patients’ distress. Yes, the study of the body should NOT only be limited to the physical aspect, the brain and Psychology should also be a part of it.

  2. For those of you that suffer with back pain (or other pains for that matter) I highly recommend looking up and reading about DR. JOHN SARNO. His approach to pain is revolutionary, and very quickly relieved me of 7 years of back/neck pain I thought was associated with a couple of old vertebrae fractures. His methods do require a bit of a leap of faith, and a willingness to consider that conventional medical practices do not always have all the answers (that is obvious, or by now you would have got rid of your pain), but if you are open minded about it he really can lead you to a pain free life. I have felt this first hand and seen it in many people I know whom have also used his methods. Here is his link: http://www.healingbackpain.com/

    Best wishes.

  3. Like a lot of other health care issues, we have to look at lifestyle, diet, physical activity, and general fitness. And the above comment’s point about psychosomatic processes is another good place to look. I’m an advocate for complimentary therapies (complimentary and not replacement) such as energy medicine. Acupuncture can be helpful, but if you want the ability to treat yourself at home, Reiki is worth a try (www . reiki . org).
