This back pain, neck pain, and backache therapy website is a derivative work of the book, MAKING YOUR BAD BACK BETTER, with The O'Connor Technique (tm), How You Can Become Your Own Chiropractor, by William Thomas O'Connor, Jr., M.D.. and exists as a unique, novel, self-administered, diagnosis and treatment oriented, educational vehicle designed to alleviate and prevent the overwhelming majority of back pain and neck pain afflicting the overwhelming majority of people with pain of spinal origin. (Click here for INTRODUCTION VIDEO in Hi-Speed) (Click here for 56K Dial-Up) This remarkable (and admittedly hard to believe) claim is a conclusion arrived at through the author's extensive research and clinical experience demonstrating that the chief source of back pain, neck pain, muscle spasm, so-called "sprains or strains," even up to severe disability due to chronic backache or back pain originates in various stages of spinal intervertebral disc disease in which pieces of the intervertebral disc (disk) become pathologically displaced or herniated. The problem is often termed "mechanical" back pain and attributed to bulging discs, slipped discs, pinched nerves, whiplash, stiff neck, sciatica, torticollis, arthritis, fibromyalgia, low back sprain, etc.; however, even shoulder and leg pain can be caused by referred pain from the spine when the displaced disc material puts pressure on the intervertebral ligaments. FOR FREE, this webbook will prove to you how most (if not all) of these pain problems can be largely attributed to herniated intervertebral disks (discs) and for the INCREDIBLY LOW PRICE OF $29.95US how this pain can be alleviated for the rest of your life by The O'Connor Technique (tm) rather than resorting to surgery, costly medicines, narcotics, Chiropractors, lengthy physical therapy treatments, dangerous injections, expensive devices, or exhausting exercises.

This prodigious conclusion can be is made because, within the author's greater than 20 year clinical experience treating back pain and neck pain; he has repeatedly been able to routinely and instantly alleviate both chronic and acute back pain, neck pain, and backache as well as restore the range of motion in the majority of patients presenting to him with the typical back pain, neck pain, spinal pain syndromes that commonly afflict most patients who agonize from this type of pain. By instantly achieving pain relief while applying specific body movements (stretching, bending, and postural changes) to patients who obtained no benefit from other practitioners, he is able to prove with reproducible results that the pain's source is mechanical in its origin precisely because it has such a simple bio-mechanical solution. (SEE TESTIMONIALS ) The same results are being reproduced by individuals through the book/website because it empowers the reader/browser with the ability to manage their own pain problems by successfully learning and applying this unique technique of back pain diagnosis, therapy, and prevention for pain relief that is elsewhere often unavailable.(Please click on color-highlighted text for related informational links) Click here to see video testimonial.

The "webbook" begins by describing the state-of-the art in back pain management elaborating on historical, contemporary, practitioner-mediated, and self-administered therapy, comparing all with The O'Connor Technique (tm) of backache management .It then reviews the anatomy and pathology of the spinal intervertebral discs (so as to educate the reader in the standard terminology necessary to understand the concepts) followed by a previously unpublished and elsewhere unavailable physical means to self-diagnose the source of back, neck, and shoulder pain. Then, through an instructional set of PRINCIPLES, it carefully explains the mechanical forces that naturally act on the spine and how these forces can be controlled and directed to relieve and prevent spinal pain. Foremost, it advances a revolutionary method of diagnosis, therapy, and prevention by teaching individuals with the most common forms of back and neck pain how to SELF-MANIPULATE their own herniated disks (or spinal intervertebral discs) to achieve relief, restore lost range-of-motion, avoid surgery, and avoid future agony and disability. It finishes by specifically targeting those activities of daily life which are especially associated with back pain and the author's perspective on available optional therapies .
The book and especially the self-administered physical therapy aspect was written to be read from a back pain sufferer's perspective, in lay language; however it was also intentionally written with sufficient technical detail so that a physical therapist, massage therapist, Chiropractor, or physician can apply the identical principles to patients in order to diagnose, alleviate, and prevent pain of spinal origin. Videos have been incorporated to make this information more easy to understand. By downloading the written material and watching the videos, a back pain or neck pain sufferer can become empowered to solve their own problem through an exceptionally inexpensive method.
In the universe of therapy books and information, one book could not relevantly address or hope to specifically treat every form of back pain. The O'Connor Technique (tm) is based upon the author's independently discovered clinical understanding that the overwhelming majority of back pain originates from a spinal mechanical injury in which the fibro-cartilaginous material of the intervertebral disk has been physically displaced or herniated. Herniated disks ( or Bulging Disk) are sometimes referred to as having been slipped discs, protruded disks, disk protrusions, bulging discs, or degenerative disks. Often, this source of low back pain, neck pain, backache, stiff neck, whiplash, torticullis, arthritis, sciatica, sprain, or shoulder pain, is correctly diagnosed as originating from a herniated disc and categorized as degenerative disk disease; however, it is often mis-diagnosed as well.
A more complete listing for
those conditions can be reviewed to determine
The prospective reader can rapidly determine if their particular back pain is most likely caused by a herniated disk problem amenable to this spinal pain relief therapy as well as quantify the probability of benefit by TAKING THE QUICK TEST provided in this webbook. If that sounds like your type of pain, you can follow the links to continue the total testing strategy. A more explicit option is to start with the COMPREHENSIVE WRITTEN TEST which largely selects those whose problems most likely can be helped and eliminates those who probably will not benefit by it. The more a reader's problem correlates with affirmative responses to the written tests, the higher the probability they will receive relief. Too, the book describes a physical means by which disk disease sufferers themselves can, by making specially designed postural movements, confirm the nature of their problem with a self-performed physical diagnostic test . Once the reader is convinced that this webbook addresses their problem, a self-manipulative method, similar to chiropractic, but exceeding it in efficacy, is described to relocate the displaced disk material and prevent it from dislocating again, without tiring, repetitive, exercises or expensive devices.
Of note is the fact that: it is not necessary for the reader to digest the entire 400 pages, the book and the website may be used compartmentally, allowing the reader to go quickly to the sections pertaining to their specific pain area, without reading the entire manual; however, since most low back pain sufferers eventually have pain in other segments of the spine, the neck and the thorax are also treated individually. The over 110 illustrations, 220 photographs, and 20 videos in the website and the book help make the concepts and directions, although novel, easy to understand and perform.
If currently in acute pain, don't hesitate to accept the free offering by reading the IN PAIN NOW section of this website. I would wager that no prior practitioner has imparted even this simple means to temporary relief given therein; and if they did, they charged alot of money for the information. Here it is given freely. I give a great deal of The O'Connor Technique (tm) away without expectation for compensation because I want to be certain that the readers are amply convinced that I know what I am talking about and that they will receive information that is appropriate for their needs before they spend any money. I feel I can afford to be generous because the material offered herein is so far ahead of the standard, conventional, treatments and therapy that it will take years for the alternative programs and optional therapies (that rely upon the laboriously slow process of academic education and methodology) to arrive at the advanced understandings that I have developed in the creation of this technique.
