Tracy, It is safe. I highly suggest that you go at your own pace. I have used this program on a client with 2 emergency back surgeries for ruptured discs. Now has sciatica, arthritis in the hips and neck, and occasional drop foot. If the pain is more than mild, then stop immediately.

is this safe for someone recovering from major back surgery that was screwed up? my discs were calcified so they used a hammer and chisel to remove them and now i have constant pain and if i over use it, my left leg goes numb and wont support me.
