Matt Ceriani spent 6 years in back pain resulting from a sports injury. After treatment by other practitioners, including shoulder surgery that was unsuccessful in relieving the pain, in June 2013 he met Dr. William T. O’Connor.
After just one session of going through The O’Connor Technique™, he was instantly taken out of pain, his range of motion was restored and he has remained out of pain to this day.
After suffering for many years with re-occurring spasms in my lower back, I sought treatment for a extreme episode of pain in early 2003. Instead of just prescribing muscle relaxers + rest, Dr. O'Connor explained what I was experiencing and what to avoid doing on a daily basis. Because he was able to allow me to visualize my problem and provide his book with illustrations, I have been spasm free. In fact, I am now able to use the information in the book along with a fitted back brace to essentially maintain my own back health. I have avoided at least three spasms on my own. Dr. O'Connor's "method " is a GODSEND.
Got your book last p.m. tried figure 12 on pg. 239. It popped finally.Why don't they know about this in Omaha, Nebraska? I've had therapy, 2epidurals, anMRI, DRX9000, demeral, skelaxin, mobic, vicodin, ibuprophen, prevacid, and nexium. Dr.Franklin said he hadn't heard of your book. I can sit,stand,and bend and straighten back up now. Hope this lasts!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I just want everyone to know how much your technic has helped me.Tho the pain returns now and then I now have your book to guide me to relief. Thank you Dr. for writting the book. I have a clear understanding of how the back works and what to do if its starts hurting. I'm now sharing with others all that I have learned, and I tell them of the book . I just finished talking to a lady who called and was in pain. I shared with her how to lay in the bed and put her back in traction. She obtained relief right away! She is going to order your book to get the big picture. Again thanks for your help. I believe I can live with my back now too.
I just signed up for a membership on your website yesterday, and I'm enjoying all I've learned so far. I've had some pain-free moments already, and they've brought a tear to my eyes. Thank you.
Two years ago, I had back pain and considered going to a chiropractor; instead, I used Dr. O'Connor's technique. There is no doubt in my mind that it worked because the pain went away instantly. Since then, every time I get pain , I just do a "maneuver," I hear the "pop" of my back going "in," and the pain stops.
I personally presented Dr. O'Connor with a patient who reported three months of unremitting back pain so severe that he was caused to walk slowly, carefully, and hunched forward while taking every opportunity to support his weight by holding on to furniture. Within twenty minutes, without being touched, and simply having his movements directed by Dr. O'Connor, the patient was standing painlessly upright and repeatedly swivelling his hips like a hula dancer, describing himself as a "happy camper." As a physician trained in Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation with additional fellowship training in spinal cord injury, I consider myself knowledgeable of the state-of-the-art in back pain management and was literally amazed by what I witnessed. I was so convinced that The O'Connor Technique (tm) constitutes a valuable contribution to medicine that I instantly bought an autographed copy of his book.
This is email is being sent to let you know of the great success I have had with the O'Connor Techniques. From time to time over the last 20 years I have had lower back problems. Every 3-4 years I would have a case of acute pain that required me to go to the doctor. Each time the doctors gave me muscle relaxer and a exercise sheet to strengthen my stomach muscles. I recently started taking martial art and started to experience back pain on a regular basis. The throws, exercise, tumbling, and other movements kept me in pain constantly. I was determined to stay in martial arts so I sought ways to deal with my back pain. I visited my wife's chiropractor and he proceeded to give me his assessment. This assessment was at a discount ($27.00) compared to the $120.00 (full price) he charged when I visited him years earlier. He gave me his findings and offered to sign me up for treatments. Treatments (Total of $1320) consisted of 32 visits to his office three times a week. After he told me he could not guarantee me the results (no misalignments), I decided to try something else. Then I came across your website. I read through as much as I could on the website before buying the book. I focused on my specific problem (lower back, left side). I tried the maneuvers and got some improvements. On another occasion, after a strenuous martial arts testing I was experiencing tremendous lower back pain. I purposely waited a few days, not wanting to do any maneuvers while I was in pain. I used the rope, pillows, and bed. Within minutes I was able to move without pain. I have been very pleased with the results. Thanks so much for spreading the word about the O'Connor Techniques. By the way, I finally discontinued martial arts. It was not worth the efforts to do it and risk causing serious back problems.
Thanks so much for your innovative solution to this problem. This is the first time I have had a serious problem, and unfortunately didn't find your book until after it got quite bad, and I had to call the ambulance to bring me to the hospital. I am so thankful that I found your method, and now not only can I "fix" and manage the pain, but the emotional help was equally as valuable. It is, as you know, incredibly scary not knowing what is happening, and the doctor here was very vague. My instinct was to not go back to a doctor, and try and find out what was happening on my own. And the idea of a chiropractor manipulating my spine literally made me sick to my stomach. Now that I have such an improved knowledge of the anatomy and situation, my stress level has been reduced drastically. I'm sure you have heard many times over how successful this has been and how generous you have been in sharing your experience, but I wanted to express it once again. I appreciate being able to take control of my own recovery and you have made that possible. Thanks again.
Dear Dr. O'Connor, Its been 6 months now since I came to visit your office and I am glad to say things have changed dramatically. After reading your book and visiting you in person, your techniques have given me new freedoms after suffering with back pain for over 3 years! My visit to you (from Texas) was very productive as you were able to get my disk back in. Things progressed as I was able to return to serious cycling, a life long passion of mine. I was able to go and watch the Tour de France this past July and ride Hors Category mountains (hardest climbs in Europe) with no major problems. I had an unforgettable trip. But being the competitive person I am, I pushed it a little too hard and pushed the disk out while I was there. Upon returning home, I began using your maneuvers and was able to get my disk back into place and felt the best I felt if over 3 years. Having the knowledge and confidence to be able to "work" my disk back into place, has change my life. Thank you for your techniques, maneuvers, knowledge, and willingness to educate others on how they can deal with disk problems. Best of luck with your continued work.
