Warriors’ Coach Kerr: REHAB not SURGERY

 When you said “…..stay away from back surgery.  I can say that with the bottom of my heart. Rehab, rehab, rehab.”.   We felt your pain.

Coaching has to deal effectively with INTENSITY.  Yet keeping Back Pain at bay, means keeping Back Muscles from tensing up.  Here’s how:

  •        “calm on demand”  :   Chade-Meng Tan (Google Fellow) points out that Mindfulness Meditation has many skill levels.  At the highest levels, one stays “loose” even in high-intensity situations.  Only the muscles which need to be used, are tensed to the appropriate amount.
  •        Calm while Intensely Active: Sartori (Zen).  The ability to have total focus on the present goal, and hence shut out distractions like crowd noise, is portrayed in an entertaining way in Dan Millman’s classic “Way of the Peaceful Warrior”
  •        Dr. Daniel Seigel's technique of "appealing to the Upper Mind" -- works for oneself as well as in coaching others.  This is what Coach Phil Jackson (11 rings) used with Kobe Bryant! 

 OASISforHEALTH takes these proven techniques further by:

"going deeper" with Kundalini-Chakra Yoga, utilizing the ground "aural" chakra, in addition to the usual 7 chakras

The proprietary OASISforHEALTH

1-minute chakra meditations can be practiced anywhere, anytime.  And eventually become ALL-the-TIME

This meditation technique starts with easy steps based on following one’s breath; but at the advanced levels, visualizations, chakra colors, and mantras will be utilized.  This is a SECULAR mindfulness meditation technique, based on UNIVERSAL principles.

As part of the OASISforHEALTH coaching plan; we also suggest various Nutraceuticals, as appropriate to the particular individual:

Magnesium at the tissue level:

Epsom salt: 20 min foot bath   (it’s difficult to use oral magnesium supplements effectively)

Curamin: a clinically-effective proprietary combination of Turmeric and Boswellia serrata

Acupuncture, (Hatha) Yoga, Fartlek (alternating intensity) exercising, are other useful and proven approaches used within the OASISforHEALTH Health Progression Plan.

A few tips you can start today:

  •      NOT Sitting (stand up and stretch every 15 mins if you’re on a couch – dance for a couple of minutes if you can!)
  •      Airplane flights – use space around the “kitchen” to stretch
  •     Walk outdoors “in nature” daily

Sources & Quotes (emphasis added):  




You might be surprised to learn that back surgery is the treatment of last resort. Because the structure of the spinal column is so intricate and the nerves running through it so numerous, back surgery is a risky procedure that only works about 50% of the time. Most experts recommend exhausting other approaches, which are 90% successful in reducing pain, before going under the knife.


Acupuncture - A study published in the Archives of Internal Medicine in 2009 found that acupuncture (in which tiny needles are inserted into pressure points on your body) was more effective at relieving back pain than traditional approaches such as medication.


Emotional Stress

When we're stressed, we tend to hold a lot of tension in our lower back, which, in turn, can severely exacerbate and prolong back pain.




 Wholistic Self-Healing of Body, Emotions, Mind, Relationships, and Spirit

 TWR Away Your Problems, TWR in Positivity

 Dr. Daniel J. Benor is a psychiatric psychotherapist best known for his development of a method called WHEE, "Wholistic Hybrid of Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR)" and an evolution of Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT) known as "Transformative Wholistic Reintegration (TWR)." 

 [  effectively combines Acupuncture concepts and Mindfulness Meditation techniques ]





According to the medical literature, spinal fusions for back pain have a success rate of about 20 to 25 percent. For 75 to 80 percent of these patients, the surgery simply results in lifelong pain and suffering.

Dr. David Hanscom, an orthopedic surgeon with a practice in Seattle, discusses these and many other facts in a recent interview, along with a novel system for treating back pain that addresses a wide spectrum of contributing factors, including sleep hygiene, nutrition, relaxation, physical therapy, and emotional processing.
