Now Joe, I hope you're not inferring that my response to this thread has anything to do with your bank account being compromised. Also, the owner of the business that is given, Jesse Cannone, is an honorable man with an impeccable record of service and free information on his website. Thousands of people have benefitted from the Healthy Back Institute and their help. Do they sell products and dvd/cd's? Yes. It's a business. Please disregard my posts if you feel it is not right for you. I'm just a guy who benefitted from those dvd/cd's and book, along with regular emails from them about how to better take care of myself and my back.
If I"d been thru the surgeries that you have, I'd be skeptical too. I truely hope you have been given a better future and you will be able to carry on in life without further surgery or pain.
In fact it was just that- my own skepticism- that led me to investigate the claims given on the website. I'm glad I did. To me, non-surgical treatment of back pain - well it's good news. Good enough to share with others.

Not a pleasant future, I fear!
Well, I am now post-surgery (on Oct. 13) and finishing physical rehab. I went to a spine surgeon and after a couple MRIs he said he could help me. So we talked it over and opted for his plan.

That was, surgery on the affected vertebra(s) with no guarantee of success but high hopes. He operated and fused 7 or 8 bones. The procedures involved L3-L3, L3-L4, L4-L5, L5-S1, T10-S1, L2-L3, L3-L4, L4-L5, L5-S1 and T-S1 I get this info from the Surgical Summmary from the surgeon.

I went to therapy while in the hospital and care center with followup in-home therapy. Following that, I have been going to a Phys Therapy center 3X/week. After the prescribed 12 sessions, I told the therapist I believed I needed a few more sessions. I will find out what happens tomorrow (Monday).

But, after having increasingly severe pain in my lower back for 60 years, I can now say I AM PAIN FREE . It is like a million pound weight has been lifted from my shoulders. I still have muscle pain from the therapy but that is getting better and I can stand for lengthy periods without discomfort.

I hope everyone suffering as I was will take heart and consider surgery for relief.


Wretched excess is just barely enough.
