Question I have been aware of The Sarno books for several years and they have helped me out of my worst bouts with pain. While getting much relief, I still find myself obsessing over every little feeling, tweak and/or pain in my back. In addition, I either roll on a tennis ball against a wall to elicit a crack or pop in my mid back, or with no ball available, I put my hand in the usual spots and lean against something to get this pop. I would say it is similar to someone who cracks their knuckles all the time. Most days I do this probably 40 times or so. This, along with fear of re-injuring the back, seem to be the last hurdles for a slow healer like myself. Thanks so much for your help!
