I went through every therapy I could possibly find from shots, to acupuncture, and even disc surgery at the big spine center outside of Tampa. Nothing worked but of course it didn't because there was nothing wrong. I had a friend turn me on to Dr. Sarno and I also did coaching with Laura out in Boulder at the Pain Cure Clinic. I was pretty much cured of L5S1 pain in just about 60 days - approximately. With Dr. Sarno's diagnosis and a little coaching, that was all I needed - 2 sessions. I like the fact that its not long-term psychotherapy. They also have a physical component to the coaching which I needed because the pain had stopped all exercise for me. www.paincureclinic.us Thank you Dr. Sarno! RIP! Thanks to all on this website. It has been very helpful.
