hello everyone, I finally started myself on structured educational program. I have had back pain for a year now and I read about Dr. Sarnos book two months ago. It was like my head gets it but my mind still was not 100 percent accepting. I continued my treatments like acupuncture until month ago. I was embracing the theory but I found myself still relying on the treatments. So I decided to quit the treatments altogether and strictly follow Dr. Sarnos’ recommendation. It has been over a week since I started Alans’ recovery program. And I am diligently reading Dr Sarnos’ Healing Back pain. I am trying my best to stay hopeful and optimistic. I thank God for this wonderful website and support!
