These are some of the country's top expert physical therapists in treating mechanical back pain (this includes herniated discs). They have both obtained the diploma level crendentialing in mechanical diagnosis and therapy. Todd mentors other Dip. candidates and Mark is extensively involved in research regarding conservative care of low back pain. If your case cannot be helped conservatively, it will be known quite quickly.

I had one for my neck, but I am in your boat for the lower back.
I don't want the surgery, but PT didn't do much.
