Format: Paperback
Yes, I would definitely recommend this book for every age whether they have problems or want to prevent them from occuring later on.

I read this book from cover to cover first. It opened my mind to the medical advise & common sense reasons I have problems with my back and shoulders, to name only two.

They are so easy to do & fit into my busy schedule.

If you cannot do the "split and squat" exercises that one reviewer had a problem with, check out pages 255-257. Dr. Weisberg provides a "modified squat and modified split" and other modified exercises. As you progress, then increase the movement to the more challenges moves. So what if it's mentioned for the elderly. Anyone who has difficulty at first, can use these. There's also a section for children.

I do so much sitting and didn't know how detrimental this position is for my body. But rather than advising me to eliminate the chair, which is impossible today, Dr. W gives isometric exercises to do while at my desk, in my car or on a plane. These very simple moves counteract the damage I'm doing while I'm sitting so much.

Format: Paperback
This book was recommended to me by a friend who is 87 years young and still going strong. I, like many others, have suffered from back pain on and off for much of my adult life. The techniques outlined in this book really do help to minimize the pain of this and many other chronic conditions related to our modern way of life [sitting in chairs is one of the main causes of back, hip and knee pain and degeneration, believe it or not]. If you have or have had musculoskeletal pain, you will likely benefit from reading this book, then putting the quick and easy stretches/exercises into practice. And yes, it literally takes 3 minutes per day to perform the maintenance therapeutic movements! Definitely a recommended read.

Format: Paperback
Everybody ought to read pages 49-63 of "3 Minutes to a Pain-free Life", namely what keeps us healthy and mobile, especially as we get older: movement and stretching. The therapeutic movements given for varies ailments are ok and can be complemented by yoga exercises. But what is often lacking in yoga and pilates classes are explanations WHY we want to move and stretch. These 12 pages give you reason and motivation to keep up the practice of what ever exercises you do in a sensible way.
