  • Would you mind write the brand of the table and where can I buy it? I never seen a working table like this look good for adaptable working positions

  • Great videos. I would caution doing McKenzie exercises such as a prone press up for a bulging or herniated disc. Would love to see you guys make a video on a book review on Dr. Stuart McGill’s books. According to Dr. McGill the prone press up may only be slightly effective IF the injured disc has maintained greater than 70% of its height. Dr. McGill is the world’s leading expert on healing low back issues. Do a quick google search, YouTube search, and read reviews on amazon regarding his books. He was a professor of spine biomechanics for over 30 years and has healed countless patients who were told surgery was the only way to fix their back issues. I challenge you to purchase his book “back mechanic” or specifically “low back disorders-evidence based prevention and rehabilitation “ which is specifically for clinical practitioners.

  • My low back pain is directly related to my “bucket seats” in my car AND lousy posture while working on my pc and sitting on a very cheap chair. Your spinal decompression videos have really zeroed in on my specific needs in terms of pain relief; and I know I have to strengthen those areas to keep my pain from returning. But also, how do I keep my spine pain free when just as I finish my poses and go back to routines my pain comes right back?!

  • @ 1:43 Hi Dean, when you say keeping the back flat on the ground, do you mean losing the natural arch and pressing the lower back into the floor? or just keeping the back in contact with the floor, with the natural curve?

  • I’ve been having recent buzzing sensations 24/7 for the last two weeks from my glutes to my toes in both legs that has eased today after I discovered doing back extensions helps.
    Is it ok that I continue to do these despite having anterior pelvic tilt for the last 3 years from sitting?
    I also do a psoas stretch with a foam roller under my tailboneshould I not do these anymore or resume at some point?
    Which of the exercises on this video are ok to do with lumbar radiculopathy/ SI joint disfunction?

  • Haven’t moved past the intro, I wanted to say thank you for NOT throwing out “lose weight” it may be true, but it isn’t helpful. So thank you for knowing that.

  • What kind of exercises I should do because I have disc bulged on both sides and little to the center too? Thank you so much for this great cahnnel!!

  • I use a far infrared heating pad made by UTK. It has no EMF radiation. It has jade and tourmaline stones attached. It has been the most helpful thing I’ve ever had for low back and joint pain.

  • The knees into chest is a great wee exercise but nothing is helping me at the moment. I went into town and forgot to lift my stick. My hubby did offer to go back home and get it and I said I’ll be fine I’m only going to the chemist. Which was about 3 min walk from where we parked, huge mistake. I’ve been in agony since. I’ll need to do a restorative yoga practice, hopefully that will help and there’s now a spare stick in the boot of the car! I will not be doing that again xx

  • I would love to get this infrared hear for my husband but it is to expensive. He had laminectomy and lower back surgery and his in constant pain.

  • Hi,
    Should I still do those back extension exercises (as you demonstrated lying prone on the table) if they cause a lot of pain?
    I am pretty sure I have a herniated disc and back flexion stretching exercises always lessen the pain, while arching my back always seems to worsen it (presume it is putting pressure on the side of my spine which has the bulging disc).
    Thank you in advance if you have time to reply!!

  • I have severe back pain due to a herniated disk in my L4 and L5 as well as 3 bulging disks surrounding it. I recently bought a firm mattress after sleeping on the floor for a couple of nights as opposed to my existing mattress. I am overweight/obese and have found that this firm mattress has done WONDERS for my back pain. I sleep primarily on my side because sleeping on my back makes my sleep apnea worse. I have tried the roll method but find that I move around too much when I sleep and it moves too and then is pushing somewhere that causes pain elsewhere (ribs, hips). I sleep with a pillow in between my legs and no roll on my new, firm mattress and it’s honestly taken away 90% of my pain.

  • Thank you! These felt great, I’ve been having issues with back pain after doing stretches wrong and skateboarding for 13 years. These are really helpful and easy to understand.

    Thanks Bob & Brad for all the videos,
    I can’t afford physical therapy so you’re really saving my…back, particularly with all the advice on what NOT to do (e.g. bending, twisting).
    Thank you both for such an incredible service. I’m very grateful.

  • Sir, i am 27 years with mri mild broad based central degenerative disc protrusion at L5 S1 with mild spinal stenosis and mild bilateral neural foramina narrowing with back pain complain?guide me should i do these exercises? Both knee to chest exercise Or press up which exercise should i do? As i have mild stenosis with disc protrusion?

  • Also, don’t do a pilates mermaid killer. For an account of practical back pain alleviation (longer term) I recommend reading Back Story by David Mitchell, a young-ish British comedian who took up walking daily to relieve his back pain (and the pain of unrequited love). As a consequence he lost some weight (and ultimately got the girl happy end).

  • Now, I’m fat. But until the program I’m doing shows results, I’m going to need relief from my “fat pain”. Until my core gets stronger, I’m going to suffer. Thanks for the demonstration and giving tips to help. PEACE

  • It looks like you guys invested in better filming equipment. The video looks better and the audio is so exponentially better with those lapel mics.

  • Probably one of your worst videos. Sticking a pillow on a person to model someone who is overweight only addresses those overweight people who carry the bulk of their weight in their stomach. You presented a stereotypical view people who are overweight and, I suspect, helped only those who specifically carry their weight in their stomachs.

  • Bob.. do you have arthritis in your left hand?

    I notice you keep your little and ring finger curled often.

    The same thing runs in my family and i am on the way to suffer from it too.

    If so, do you feel pain? And how does it affect you?

  • Glad I watched this. Great job man. Really clear delivery. Definitely going to go back and watch more videos from this channel.
    Thanks again, good job dude

  • Hi I have a question. Im a dancer and when im stretching doing a lunge with my left leg in front and then i push forward to stretch my hip flexors, i feel pain almost like a blockage in my hip and it really hurts. I have no problems on my right side. The same pain ocvurs when i lie on my back and bring my left bent leg up into my chest a blockage type of pain thats how i would describe it. Ive tried to find videos on youtube but it doesnt seem to be helping. Any ideas on what could be wrong and how i could fix it??

  • Thank you bob & Brad, I had a accident about 5 years ago and end up in a l4,l5,s1 fusion and spinal fluid leak for about 2 days and that lead to a hemorrage stroke. I been in terrible pain and trouble walking, sitting, and standing, had 3 years of therapy land,and aqua. Thanks for the videos that educate people. Keep up your good videos. Thanks.

  • Dear Dr. Bob and Dr. Brad I thank you a lot for your videos and the knowledge in them i want to share a big gift for my heart: https://youtu.be/5Gr54pYc3Ak

  • Howdy, Im a 25 year old 6 foot 5 inch 195 pound male. Ive seen everyone that i can think of and gone through as many teat as possible with treatments.
    (MRI and Xrays for the spine, EMG to the hip flexors and area.) I started running out of options when my neurologist/spine doctors and physios cant find anything wrong. The pain is severe that i cannot work or stand for longer than 2 hours then i usually lay flat on a floor. Ive had cortisone and that did nothing. But the prolotherapy i had an A typical reaction but that only last just past a month until i had “pulled”, hurt it again. (6 session with prolo.) I Dont know where to go now or what todo. Im quite active. but when i do a movement or even a light lower back work i get pain on top of my Quads and aswell to my IT band and of coarse sacral to L5 ish. Rarely does it pass my knee. Unless it is a real bad day. Pain is never in the glutes or inner thigh. For flexibility i struggle only at the lower region of the back. I hope that was a good enough explanation. I hope you can enjoy this mystery case as my doctors call it… several doctors.. Thank you fellas for reading.
