Dr. Snell's program ended 30 years of endless cycles of chronic low back pain, muscle spasms, sciatica, nerve and muscle atrophy, and its toll on productivity and happiness. The only chagrin I'm left with is how such a simple diagnosis and cure eluded so many doctors.
I want to thank you for your online tips for not only myself but for those I will be using with my patients in the future. Five days ago I experienced a different type of lower back pain that was exactly the flexion induced lower back problem you describe on your site. The one thing I had realized is that I had no kept current with best information and rehab information and just thought spinal adjustments were the key to maintaining a healthy spine along with some exercise BUT I did not realize some of the exercises I had been doing and those I had been telling patients to do were wrong. This new information gives me an excited forecast of the future versus a depressed outlook on what the future might hold. So grateful for your site and now excited about the prospect of building a healthy back.

Thanks to Fix Your Own Back videos, I was able to relieve my crippling pain, thank you for educating us to help ourselves.
My local chiropractor referred me to Dr. Snell’s website in February, after a month of severe lumbar disc pain. When I first found the website I was literally flat on the floor of my living room, unable to move more than a few inches at a time. But I started Dr. Snell’s program that night. I worked carefully through the chapters over the next six months, all the way to the Turkish Get-ups in Chapter 7. Back in February, I could not even walk without terrible pain, and I was terrified that I would never be able to run again. But within six weeks of following Dr. Snell’s program, my pain had mostly disappeared. In May I was able to run slowly again. By June, I was back to my normal running routine. And in September, I ran a 100 mile ultra without even thinking about my back. At the finish line, my family asked about my disc injury and I said, “Oh! Well, I guess it’s all healed!” Thank you Dr. Snell!
I've only been a subscriber for two weeks, but so far I have been feeling better as a result of doing McKenzie streches. Also doing core strength moves like dead bug and bird dog. Thank you.
