Hi all,
just thought id let you know about the Sarno technique. my friend told me about it. He had l5 s1 discetomy, and prolapse of disc above, he was at his end with it all. He used this doctors technique, it saved him.
let go of all your stresses, im doing that today, its helping, letting go of all the pressure you put on yourself, and just focus on back getting better!!!!mind power, i hope it works, nothing to loose
take carexxx


  • I think it is more for long term pain than an acute herniation?
    I don't now how long I've had the L5 herniation, but my back started bothering me last year, then I had knee surgery for ACL tear and did rehab for 5+ months. Then my back upper glute really hurt 2 months ago when I tried out for a hockey team (I'm 18).
    MRI showed it was a herniation at L5 and I've been worse since the diagnosis, after physical therapy and 1 epidural shot.

    So my mom now is saying it is stress related because I'm going away to college, trying to play for a high level team there, etc. and this pain is common among young, college athletes (with or without herniation).

    I've researched many examples and one study from a sports medicine journal showing that 85% of tennis players 16-20 have herniated discs or spine fractures and have never had or reported pain. This was a small random sample. So there's hope that a lot of the symptoms are psychosomatic.
    Then there are people with herniated discs that are not athletes. So what is the cause of our trouble really??

    Has the Sarno technique helped you? I've started but I'm not doing daily reading/journaling. No results so far,,,
