I just bent over one day while I was working on the yard and wham! Striking back pain. The pain persisted 24/7 from that point on. I tried everything including minimally invasive spine surgery by the famous place in Tampa which did nothing. My brother turned me on to John Sarno's - Mind/Body Prescription and I started to see the light. I immediately believed it but had a tough time making it happen. The pain went down some but I had trouble making it go away. I eventually found these guys in Colorado who coach based on Sarno - Pain Cure Clinic. commercial link removed And that did it. They have a straight forward way of doing things that I really liked. And fast. I did just two coaching sessions (which is all that they recommend). They gave me an action plan that I thought was sorely missing from Sarno's book. Approximately 45 days later, I the pain was gone. That was about 4 months ago and it has not returned. Fantastic! So if you've read the books and not gotten better, try some coaching. It made the difference for me.
