His Back Was “Twisted Like a Pretzel”

The hands-down most rewarding aspect of working here at The Healthy Back Institute is that we’re making a positive difference in so many peoples’ lives … an extremely positive difference, in fact, because to take so many people from a “high” level of pain to a “low” to “non-existent” level of pain is as extremely positive as it gets!

And I — and everyone on the team here — love nothing more than all the letters of appreciation and other grateful feedback we get from customers… and I can humbly but happily say we get a lot of it!

However, sometimes the customer stories are so incredible I simply want to share them for all to see.

That certainly goes for Dale Hartley’s story below (who gave us permission to share it.)

(He’s from Joondanna WA in Australia, so you can imagine that wonderful Australian accent in your head while reading this … unless of course you are from Australia, in which case no need to imagine an accent 😉  )

“After injuring myself overtraining for a marathon as a seventeen year old I ended up severely damaging nearly every ligament from my hips down.

The doctors said to not run again for at least two years.

However, the injuries never properly healed and I suffered constant but manageable pain.

A few years later I started having back pain and five years ago I had an x-ray of my back done and what it revealed was a back twisted like a pretzel.

By this time I was eating eight Mersyndol each night just to get two hours sleep.

I started receiving treatment with a chiropractor, which made a big difference.

Most days I would feel only low-level pain and experience severe pain a couple days before my regular fortnightly appointment, but I couldn’t sit for long periods.

On plane trips between Perth and Melbourne I would spend most of the flight standing in the aisle.

Since starting to use Heal-n-Soothe, Rub on Relief, Lose the Back System, 7-Day Back Pain Cure Book and the Freedom Back the pain stopped.

Within a couple days it reduced significantly, and a couple of weeks later it was just gone.

A month later I flew to Guangzhou from Perth and sat in an economy class seat for eight hours comfortably.

Even on the flight back with an injured shoulder I slept soundly.

These days my chiropractor is astounded by the change, and the careless ease with which I move around. I no longer have to be careful to avoid pain.

It has now been six weeks since my last chiropractic appointment and I still feel great.”


Quite a story, and there is a clear “moral to the story” here: No matter how “bad” the pain is or how long you’ve suffered from it, do NOT give up hope because there are (non-drug, non-surgical) solutions that can help you.

You see, here at The Healthy Back Institute we are passionate about ending your pain, and we’ve got over a dozen years experience providing tens of thousands of people with non-drug/non-surgical solutions that really work.

However… we don’t have a multi-million (or multi-billion) dollar advertising budget like the pharmaceutical companies do… so it often takes people suffering from pain awhile to finally hear about us or find us, like Dale did!

But the great news is, YOU found us!

And if you’re suffering from back, neck, sciatic or any type of pain, your “pain story” can end happily like Dale’s, too.

The key is to take action now … and on that note, I invite you to learn about the various solutions Dale noted in his story above:

    I agree with your statement on not giving up even with chronic back pain! I have experienced countless patients who come in and say they were close to just giving up, but because they heard of treatments and medications (some natural of course), they decided to give it a try.
