Two years ago I was suffering of an extremely painful low back condition after years of discontinuous discomfort. A minor fall off my bike exacerbated the problem to the point that I could hardly move. Best doctors in town suggested a tough spine surgery as only solution with uncertain results.
Searching for an alternative I was fortunate to find Stuart McGill book Low Back Disorders, whose sound details encouraged me to try a totally different approach. I also met Prof. McGill in one of his seminars in Europe for an extended examination of my problem. The result speaks for itself: after following his precise indications a few months later I did resume all my intellectual and sport activities fully recovered—a condition kept to this day.
