This downloadable back pain treatment video package will allow you to take charge in curing a spinal problem. They involve pro-active measures to help you engage head-on with a spinal problem, helping to push through your natural hesitation and making you do new and important things.
Most chronic back problems can go straight to this stage, although it is always good to view the appeasing videos as well, in case you create a treatment reaction and stir up additional pain (this is normal enough but if you expect it, and know how to deal with it, you won't be alarmed).
Believe it or not, no matter what the diagnosis, curing a spinal problem involves gentle spinal decompression, for pretty well every condition. Decompression, or traction, separates the spinal segments that have become squashed by gravity and muscle tightness, making it easier for the discs to circulate fluid. At 46MB and 20 minutes Spinal Therapy Starts with Decompression is the most important video in this package of back pain treatment videos.

How to Bend safely and Squat

She also shows you how effective squatting can be to pull the spinal segments apart. This file is 14MB and 6 minutes long.
