Format: Paperback
While no book could replace hands on instruction, this book comes close. This is the book that got me moving again after years of struggle with chronic back pain. Rather than a "one size fits all" approach, the book encourages one to review the evidence of your body and carefully approach the problem. I wonder where I would be if I hadn't run into this book a few years ago. Try it, it may save your back.

Format: Paperback
Very complete book with daily routines in the back. The description of exercises is extremely thorough. Much more complete than many other books out there. I have been through some rough times with my back and shoulders, and have searched widely for guidance to help me take care of myself - this one is a keeper. Doctors and Chiropractors are wonderful - but the ultimate responsibility is ours.

Format: Paperback
I had the pleasure of training with Kit Laughlin and other Posture and Flexibility instructors. Prior to learning Kit's approach I often experienced muscle tension in my neck, shoulders and back. Starting with the very first lesson, I learned specific stretches which eliminate tension in these muscle groups.
In Kit's first book, 'Overcome Neck and Back Pain', he introduces a self-service approach to relieve neck and back pain through improvement of whole body suppleness. He demonstrates stretches targeting not only muscles in the neck, shoulder and back, but also muscles in the pelvic area and legs which influence back pain, as the reader will learn. Specific back strengthening exercises are also included to help the reader build up the muscle strength needed to maintain good posture and prevent back pain.
I have seen students of all ages and levels of flexibility benefit from using these techniques. Although a book can never replace hands-on instruction, this book will lead you on a path to overcome neck and back pain.

as always. Kit Laughlin always does an excellent job providing detailed explanations
as well clear "how-tos" coupled with decent photographs. Who needs a dvd? The books are good enough!
