Jean Krach says:

can sciatica be in the front of your thighs?

Levente Czutor says:

This exercise has only made my pain worse. I have a herniated disc (between L5 and the os sacrum)

Ahmed Mo says:

Hi, thanks for the video. I have a question, my lumbar disc bulge is more prominent on the left side. Does that require any modification in terms of positioning my body while doing these exercises?

Optimal Performance Consultants says:

Still referring my ergonomic clients to this site over and over again. Why? these two use #EvidenceBased approaches to diagnosis and treatment of #BackPain. Well done fellow #Physiotherapists

Shirley Scott says:

LOL, the opening song credits would make a great ringtone.

Shiny Arif says:

Thank you, explained well, i am bit confused how to shift pain back to my lower back, will my disc go back in place

Tom McCormack says:

And yet, I am fused at L-4 and L-5 but experience severe pain down my Right leg; outer to front, not back of the leg. Before the surgery I had experienced pain down the back of my Left leg. With this stated; "How is it that I experience pain at all" ? Being as I am fused.

Jorge Meneses says:

I just wanted to tell you, God will bless you for putting this video on here. Following this video has kept me away from the chiro for the last 2 years. And I send people here to watch and learn from you. Thank you very very much!

Emily Casey says:

Beautiful! Excellent video

james raj says:

I am healed in 2 days. Thanks a million

DenDen C says:

This is a good video, but I get pain in the feet / legs and tingling when doing this

Thaw Tar says:

Guys, you follow these two docs' teaching and do the exercises well! They are amazing! Got herniated disc 6 months ago and the pain was immense. And my doctor says he can introduce me to some surgeons rather than giving me exercises. I was quite depressed and found Bob and Brad. I followed their instructions and did the Makinze exercise quite seriously. Now I am completely healed (may be). I can even lift my leg while laying on the bed which is a very difficult task for people with herniated discs or sciatica. Cannot thank enough to these docs! They are like angels for me.

Staircas3 says:

Can you do this kind of exercise if you don't have a herniated disc???

Lydia Justice Kimball says:

I have been doing these exercises for several months. They are great and I have so far been able to avoid surgery. Thanks Bob and Brad!

Super Mushroom says:

Please do not do this exercise. It will damage your facet joints. These clowns do not know what they are talking about.

Holly Brown says:

Felicidades, es un buen ejemplo.
250 sentadillas son unos KISSSS.Uno muchas y un buen ejercicio.

سعد الجزائري says:

I advise you with ostrich oil and lamb's tail grease.

coolman says:

Hi B & B
I have chronic pain daily
2 years ago in pandemic I strained my groin with associated hip pain.
Tight pisoras muscle, +

Mckenzie position offers back L5 relief but tight going hip stops ability to full mckenzie position.

Can you do a quick combination treatment example. 68, male, 17stone
Fit & strong normaly

Gerry Mancuso says:

I’ve been doing these exercises for 2 weeks now, yet I’m still in pain going down to my foot. I get shocks in my big toe and it’s hard to stand for a few minutes at a time. I’m going to keep up the regimen and hopefully soon recover, but as of now still in severe pain.

Mary Bonett says:

Does this depend on which disc/s are herniated? If it's a cervical spine herniation is neck backbending also ok?
