Having suffered from severe lower back pain for past 3 years, which I know is TMS, I cannot overcome conditioning. I cannot stand up from seated position without a struggle and without the full support of my arms - I know this is conditioning...my subconscious and conscious focus is always on the lower back to check if pain is there or not when I get up. Also I cannot bend at all, I can just about touch my knees. Please advise on how to overcome this, as until this is overcome I cannot fully recover. Thank you, Peter (UK).
