Low back pain is among the most common chronic pain conditions in Canada. Four out of five adults will experience at least one episode of back pain at some time in their lives. The cause of back pain, however, is not always apparent; in fact, in approximately 85% to 90% of individuals with back pain, no specific cause can be identified. To help us better understand this common condition and learn how to manage low back pain, we'll be speaking with Dr Owen Williamson. Dr Williamson is an orthopaedic spine surgeon and specialist pain medicine physician. He is also an Adjunct Senior Lecturer in the Department of Epidemiology and Preventive Medicine, Monash University, Melbourne, Australia. In 2007, Dr Williamson became the first orthopaedic surgeon in Australia to become a Fellow of the Faculty of Pain Medicine, Australian and New Zealand College of Anaesthetists in 2007. He is on the Education and Training Committee and an examiner for the Faculty of Pain Medicine and is involved in the development of pain education programs in both Australia and Canada.

Naturopathic Medicine, Holistic Healthcare and Alternative Healthcare; how do they all fit together and are they really the same? If you have back or neck pain perhaps you have thought about trying to find another way to get out of the chronic pain that rules your life. When pills and surgery do not spell relief, it is time to look at the other messages your back may be telling you and address them.
My guest today is Dr. Christopher Maloney, a Naturopathic Physician who looks at the back and neck as a road map to find out what influences are contributing to your pain and how to adjust the constant triggers that do not allow you to live life to the fullest. He utilizes nutrition, exercise, motion therapy, botanical medicine, homeopathy and other modalities to support body healing. You should not have to live a life with restrictions if you can find a way to make each day better.
Dr. Maloney can be reached here for more information and he does provide two writings; one about Naturopathic Medicine found here and your Body Maintenance found here.

Esther Gokhale (Go-clay) has been involved in integrative therapies all her life. As a young girl growing up in India, she helped her mother, a nurse, treat abandoned babies waiting to be adopted. This early interest in healing led her to study biochemistry at Harvard and Princeton and, later, acupuncture at the San Francisco School of Oriental Medicine.
After experiencing crippling back pain during her first pregnancy and unsuccessful back surgery, Gokhale began her lifelong crusade to vanquish back pain. Her studies at the Aplomb Institute in Paris and years of research in Brazil, India, Portugal and elsewhere led her to develop the Gokhale Method, a unique, systematic approach to help people find their bodies’ way back to pain-free living.
Gokhale has practiced acupuncture and taught posture, dance and yoga in her Palo Alto wellness center for over twenty years. Esther's Gokhale Method continues to grow as qualified Gokhale Method teachers now teach her method worldwide.
Gokhale's book, 8 Steps to a Pain-Free Back, has sold over 75,000 copies and has been translated into six languages. In 2010, Gokhale hosted the nationally televised program Back Pa

What causes low back pain? What positions are the absolute worst for the lower back region? What is "the core" and why is it so important? Is the core truly a "powerhouse" of strength? Can the core be "trained" to create postural correction? Why is sciatica (nerve root irritation) so common in people and how can it be prevented? Do you feel pain that travels down the back and outside of the leg to the toes? If so, you may be suffering from sciatica. On this show,
As a Certified Rolfer, Reiki Master and Pilates Instructor, one might think that Paul Van Alstine, owner of Studio One Pilates, has always been in excellent shape with no physical issues in his personal history.But nothing could be farther from the truth. As a younger adult, Paul suffered tremendously from back pain due to injuries he had experienced in his youth. Through the research he did, Mr. Van Alstine was able to determine that Pilates could help him overcome some of the pain he had been suffering. For the last 12 years, Paul has been perfecting his craft, and is now known for running a studio like no other in existence today. Due to Paul’s techniques, clients relieve back, shoulder, neck and joint pain, reduce incontinence, lose inches around their mid-section and actually grow taller (despite their age).

Ladies you CANNOT afford to miss today's Conversations with Dr. D Ivan Young. It may save your life. It's 2013 and HIV is still on the rise, especially with African American men on the down low. Blacks/African Americans continue to be disproportionately affected by HIV infection. The estimated rate of new HIV infections among blacks/African Americans (68.9) was 7.9 times as high as the rate in whites (8.7).
Tyvance Credit joins Dr. D to explore this controversial subject. Tyvance has been a key figure in the fight against the HIV/STD phenomenon in the Houston area for 15 years. Tyvance has tested more than 100,000 people, diagnosed at least 5,000, and linked about 70% of them to care. In his dedication to the cause, he has been known to pop the trunk and test people on the back of the car! He founded the first internet program (B.O.I.S.) to outreach to people to prevent them from becoming HIV Positive. In 2012, he launched "The Tyvance Experience" to address the needs of women and their common need of self validation, appreciation, and confidence to continue being the back bone of the family and relationships.
