Spinal Pain Relief
Watch and read how The O’Connor Technique™ has helped thousands of people
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.
“I would recommended it to everyone; especially athletes looking to avoid surgery, or have a turn around where a normal low back or mid back injury might take 2 – 3 weeks. With The O’Connor Technique your pain goes instantly. Dr. O’Connor taught me how to do it on own so that I can take myself out of pain wherever I am.”
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.
My wife and I received your book, “Making Your Bad Back Better” a few days ago and we wanted to tell you that both of our back problems are gone since we applied your maneuvers. My wife had been to her chiropractor for spine adjustments with no real improvement but was feeling great after completing one maneuver from your book. I have a chronic problem with my middle-upper back and am very pleased that I can now quickly and easily adjust my spine so that it is in proper alignment and I feel great. Thanks for the valuable information!
I must tell you that this material is the very best I have ever read concerning techniques for aiding back pain sufferers, really good stuff. My wife has several prolapsed discs and has already terrific pain relief with your information. I am a retired anesthesiologist here in Sarasota, my wife has had MRIs, cat scans etc. showing her pathology but what amazes me is the indifference to her pain shown by both general orthopedists and those trained in spinal techniques. Also the physical therapists did more to hurt her than to help her and if the surgeons don't offer a surgical solution they offer nothing else, except epidural steroids, which sometimes help and pain meds. I am sure many people are out there just living with this severe pain despite the magnitude of the defect. Your book is terrific and beautifully written.
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.
I learned about your ideas early this year. I have had significant sciatic problems for a couple of years and was losing weight in order to see if my sciatic symptoms would be improved after the weight loss. I finally went to your website and ordered your book. And soon after that, I called your office and made an appointment. I saw you at your office in March of this year, I believe. The office visit and demonstration was especially helpful in learning the particulars of my situation with the lower back. It’s been a tremendous help to me to be able to handle occasional flare-ups of a disc that moves out and causes some pain. I refer to your book on a regular basis to learn more. I don’t take ibuprofen on a regular, daily basis like I was before I lost the weight. I have taken a jog recently to see how it would go. I haven’t done that in 2 years. It went fine, no residual pain or inflammation at all. I will keep trying it out and hope to build a routine again, since I always enjoy a jog and a sweat. Today I ordered a book to be sent to my Mother-in-law in Los Angeles. She has already had a surgery up in the neck area and although it was difficult to recover from, she feels that she needed it to get relief. But now the MD is talking about a lower back surgery since she is having sciatic problems for the first time. This is not something that she wants to think about. She is now 78 years old. I figure that she might as well have a chance to try out your thinking and see if it is an alternative that can help her. If she is interested, I will recommend that she perhaps visit you the next time they travel to Nor. Cal. to visit us. Anyway, I enjoy your book, there is so much there to pay attention to. I had come to be afraid of the state of my discs, that they were shot, or at least one was. But you offered me the idea that I just needed to work at getting them back where they belong. Yes, they move around a bit, depending on what I do to them, but they aren’t shot, and it gives me a whole new outlook on my situation.
I was diagnosed with degenerative disk disease in the C-5, C-6, and C-7 section of the cervical spine two weeks ago. All surrounding muscles cramped and I became an official back sufferer. Also, I have referred sensitivity in the medial nerve of the right shoulder and arm. I had an MRI done and I have a consultation with a neuro surgeon next week. I'll get my MRI data next week to take to the surgeon. I have used your cervical techniques for 6 days. I've had absolutely amazing results! I did feel a large disk material move on the 4th day. Obviously, damage still exists. I can hear it and feel it but the referred nerve sensation has GREATLY minimized and the pain has reduced approximately 95%. This is a extremely difficult time for me. My daughter continues to fight an extremely aggressive version of Crohn's disease and my wife has started to have head tremors and memory loss. At the age of 45, I feel like my world is coming to and end. I am the sole financial provider for my family and this issue with my spine cannot interfere with my work. I have already convinced 3 people to become members of you website. I am just getting involved with you products/knowledge and I am totally impressed and in awe of everything you are doing! Thank you William O'Connor.
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.
