I was a national champion powerlifter in college. In the 123 pound weight class, I was able to squat and deadlift over 400 pounds. But I had to cease competing due to low back pain that developed in the fall of 1982. For the next thirteen years the pain or the fear of it severely limited what physical activities I could engage in. The pain worsened in the spring of 1994, and I was crippled by it for the next six years. I couldn't lift more than two pounds without ending up in pain. I also had to spend the bulk of my day laying flat on my back. During these years, I tried just about every available traditional and alternative treatment. But nothing worked. However, I finally found complete relief in the spring of 2000. And since that time the pain has not returned in any significant degree. In fact, I am now powerlifting again and once again squatting and deadlifting over 400 pounds. This booklet describes the traditional and alternative treatments that I tried and what finally worked.
