    I’ve been having some lower back pain. It almost feels like it’s in my stomach. it affects me when standing. when I bend over I can feel the muscle stretching. it helps when I sit. I’ve gained some weight so I think it has something to do with that. I’m dieting now. any thoughts? Thank you so much for all you do Doc!

    Hello Doc and all. 3 years ago I started seeing a local chiro because of sciatic pain. After a few 2 X weekly appointments, the pain went away. I then have every 2 weeks appointments for 2 and a half years , all he did was cracked my neck and back for ” alignments” . I then realise, I don’t feel any anymore improvements from his manipulations of my spine, I go there, pay 60 bucks ,get out with the same dullness in my skeletal system. I stopped seeing the chiro and started from most of you tubes self help videos which seems to be better. I plan to see a different chiro for second opinion. Am I alone in this approach? Every chiro has different ways. Thanks Doc and all.

    Dr. Mandell, thank you very much for your videos!! I tried your exercises two years ago and liked the results. I have been doing it on a continuous basis since then. Have been sharing your videos with my friends too.

    I just found Dr. Mandell’s vids a few hours ago , and I am glad I did. I’m 46 years old, but a few hours ago I felt like I might’ve been 99! I hurt all over. I subscribed, then started watching vids and following exactly what the doc says, and I have to say that right now I don’t any pain whatsoever!!!!! It’s 2:15 AM EST, I should be in bed, but I feel so good that the last thing I want to do is sleep. Thanks again Dr. Mandell!

  • Riccardo Rossi

    Carissimo dr. Alan Mandell scrivo per dimostrare la mia grande gratitudine per la diffusione dei suoi preziosi video, che promuovono la buona salute pubblica.
    I also propose your videos to some of my friends that study the English language; yours is not the British accent, but surely, it is a very good American English.
    So why not improve one’s health, while improving the English language knowledge at the same time ?
