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 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.

  • 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 just wanted to pass along my sincere thanks for the invaluable help you rendered for my lower back pain and a very painful left leg. I had injured my back in April 2002, at the age of 48, while removing heavy luggage from the trunk of my car, and things got worse over the following month as my leg developed pain and my foot went numb. I visited a doctor, 2 chiropractors and a physiotherapist many times over the next few months, without accurate diagnosis or improvement to my condition, but a much lighter pocketbook. It wasn't until I found your website in the fall that things began to improve. I obtained an MRI at my own expense, which showed conclusively that I had a herniated L5-S1 disc, then I subscribed to your website, read the web-book and tried the hip-hang maneuver. The second attempt resulted immediately in the loss of foot numbness and half of the leg pain. At this point I booked an appointment at your clinic to coincide with a business trip to San Francisco. The outcome of my visit was more than I could have hoped for -- you directed me through a series of maneuvers over an hour's time, without even laying a finger on me. When I was finally back on my feet, I was without any leg pain at all and most of the pain was gone from my lower back. You suggested that there might be some residual nerve damage from the length of time that it was under compression, and so far there is little or no indication of that being the case. The remaining lower back pain has gradually diminished to be almost unnoticeable over the 6 months since my visit. What I'm most thankful for is that I've been able to resume my physical activities (with a little extra care!). I've been skiing 15 times, beginning 2 weeks after my appointment, and I'm now hiking and bicycling again, all with no problems whatsoever. I'm sure there are countless others with my condition that could benefit in a similar way, and to them I say, don't wait! The sooner a disc herniation is dealt with, the easier it will be to correct it and the sooner you will be able to enjoy life again.

  • 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.

  • I recently purchased your book, "Making Your Bad Back Better," and I can't thank you enough -- it's been a great help to me. I injured my lower back lifting on July 25th, and when I was able to walk, a few days later, I began searching around on the internet for some information on spinal anatomy to find out what exactly I had done to myself. I found your website, and it was the most informative of all I had seen -- I immediately ordered the book, and it came just in time, because while I had been on the floor, immobilized by a lower back spasm, I was using my head & neck to shift around, and displaced the nucleus in a cervical disc (c2-c3, I think). It bothered me off and on and then began to get steadily worse until I was able to re-seat it with the help of your book. Once again, thank you for your excellent work.
