I hope you are doing something really cool today.
My family and I are heading out to the lake. We just got a boat so we will have a pleasant time sailing this summer. We will have fun and enjoy a healthy and happy life.
What I have for you today is a question that I got from a customer of the Fix My Back Pain program. The response I gave him might help you out when it comes to dealing with your pain.
So, have a read and I will talk to you soon.

I got another question from a Fix My Back Pain customer. It’s from Hal and this was his question:
“Hello Mr. Kaselj. Thank you for inquiring if I have questions. That’s a refreshing change for sure. I haven’t been able to actually listen or look at the material as my home computer is giving me fits. I am saving up to get it repaired. I do however have a question.
I am aged 47 with some re-emerging back problems and neck problems. I don’t know where it came from. The pain is not really in my back but starts deep in the glute and runs down the rear side of the left hamstring and on to the rear side calf muscle. I cannot even stand over.
Doctor said it is due to degenerating and bulging disc. I used acupuncture before and I was healed. I tried massage therapy but it didn’t worked.
My doctor wants me to see a physical therapist if this steroid doesn’t take the swelling down.”
Hal, it sounds like you have a lot of things going on. You have had back pain in the past.
Your doctor said it was disc herniation. Your symptoms sound a lot more like Sciatica but go with what your doctor says.
You have had success in the past with acupuncture, which is good. Massage therapy hasn’t worked for you. And it now looks like you are going to end up trying a cortisone injection.
Now to your specific questions:
Question #1: Will I ever be able to get rid of the problem?
YES, you will!
In the past, you got rid of it with acupuncture and it helped and that’s going to happen again. You will overcome your back pain. You just have to keep on looking, committing, and following through with different things until you find what will help you overcome your back pain and have it behind you forever. So YES, you will get rid of the problem.
Question #2: Can I perform the program even though I’m in pain?
YES. You can do Component 1 and Component 2.
Component number 1 is for reshaping your back from the inside. Anyone can do it. Just watch the 10-minute video where I highlight the most important things that you can do. And watch Component number 2 where I talk about reshaping your back from a painful back to a pain-free back. Watch the 10 to 15-minute video and you can implement those right away, even if you are in pain.
After that, you can implement Component 3, which is injury-specific back pain exercises. You would go with the disc herniation bulge ones and see how that works for a period of time. You might need to progress to the Sciatica-specific ones.
Question #3: Getting desperate to feel better. This stopped my career in law enforcement and I missed the federal level cut-off. Should I ever dream of a career in executive protection with back and neck issues?
The answer is YES.
If you have a goal, you have to keep working towards it. You are going to be tested by all kinds of challenges, and that includes injuries and pain. Just like so many thousands of other people that have had injury and pain, you can overcome pain and reach your goals.
If you look at any type of professional sports, there are numerous professional athletes that have hurt themselves horrifically, but they have returned and done great things. This can happen with you as well.
So, there you go Hal! Thank you very much for your questions. If you are a Fix My Back Pain customer, send me your questions, any clarifications on the program, or a question that relates to you.
