  1. I have been suffering for 3 1/2 months with a herniated disc at c7. I've tried physical therapy (not this exercise), chiropractic, and anti-inflammatory pills. Nothing was working, it was getting progressively worse. 3 1/2 months may not sound long to some of you, but it seems like a year. I stumbled onto this vid 1 week ago. I substituted an elastic band for the towel shown here and gave it a whirl.
    I am not cured yet, but the amount of improvement in just 7 days is astonishing. It took a few attempts to really isolate the muscles you are supposed to work, but you figure it out fairly quick. Keep your arms motionless, and tuck your chin on the pull back.


  2. My posture is really bad and I’m trying to correct it but when I did this exercise my upper back (the area from shoulder blade to shoulder blade to the center of my spine) was burning and got really tight to where it felt like I was going to get a Charlie horse but that area didn’t cramp up, thank goodness. Is that sensation normal? And will it ease up as my posture is getting to the position it’s supposed to be in?
    As always, thank you Dr Mandell for all u do to help us get to better health!❤️

  3. I tried all your neck exercises, done all my chiropractor's exercises, stretches, tried many different pillows, etc and yet the pain in my neck has gotten worse these past 2 years. The pain is like a jolt around C4/5 going down my left arm, sometimes the right arm, down my left side near the ribcage, below my neck. down my left glute and left leg (could it be related to the spinal cord)? the pain is first like a jolt if I bend over than sweating in my hands and feet, not feeling the cold, weird feeling in my upper abdomen, a flash of burning feeling in all parts mentioned, in my left jaw, at time on my teeth and behind my left eyes (rarely though). I stop being able to sleep on my side 2 years ago (I will know that my neck is acting up with an intense pulse like in my neck) and just recently lost the ability to sleep on my back too. I feel a bit of relieve when standing up. It's maddening, frustrating and terribly stressful. I only sleep in the wee hours out of exhaustion and in pain, waking up now and then. I wish I could see you but I live in San Francisco; it's a bit far. Would you please recommend a great chiropractor here, in San Francisco specialized in neck pain (either a pinched nerve or slipped/pinched disk? It would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

  7. Nothing but true blessings to you and your family sir! I subbed after waking around 4am from constant neck pain over last couple of days..went to sleep with my tv on rain sounds but one of your videos was listed below so here we are..could talk forever about spine issues I've dealt with from neck down but I just thank God for you and for you sharing all that you do. Blessings again in Yeshua/Jesus name.

  8. Hey guys! I've suffered from herniated disc as well. Lower lumbar spine. It eventually graduated to Sciatica. Nerve pinched on left leg. Endured pain for 6 months. Doctor only option was surgery. I was flat broke and no insurance. Put off MRI for awhile ( ). It was expensive but eventually got it. Confirmed the bulge. Cause was a deterioration on S1 probably from an accident I had 10 yrs ago.. I researched on hydrotherapy. Swimming with a series of movement. Gravity is our worse enemy. After just a couple of times, the pain was gone. Got full function of my left leg again. It worked for me. Don't lose hope. I was in a desperate situation. I thought my life ended. It's been 3 years now and I haven't felt pain again. I hope you all get better. I am not a doctor. We all have different cases. This just worked for me.

  9. So I had a lot of nerve pain for quite a while. I noticed that my neck would crack as I would inhale, do you think that if you have consistent cracking in the neck it can also signify a problem?

  12. Thanks for this vid. Been having neck issues for a few years now. Think I stumbled on a similar exercise by myself. As I drive, or more often at red lights, I do this same movement into the headrest of my car seat. Makes the neck feel better, and seems to make me feel more alert at the same time.

  13. Been suffering for 3 years not been Able to move my neck crying in so much pain left me hunched over days off work constantly on painkillers did this and I can hand on heart say my pain lifted and I was able to turn my neck with ease the relief is mad the nightmare I’ve been living in mite be over thank you for this video ❤️, helped my neck pain headaches shoulder / blade pain arm and numbness in arms and hands

  14. The first one I tried my neck crunched and popped! Shit. I'll try this for a few days and see how I get on. Office job for 20+ years will probably kill me quicker than the drink!!
