I have been reading back pain books for quite some time now, continually searching for answers to back pain. This book talks a lot about posture and how it can affect your back. The exercises are quite unique and for most people, will involve one bending over backwards frequently to abate back pain.
One thing I did notice about this book is that it contains absolutely no exercises to strengthen your back. Why is this important? Because much research that I've read over the years says so. It is well set in the back literature that people with back pain have smaller than normal back muscles, (Parkkola,1993 and Daneels,2000) when examined with CT scans and MRI's AND weaker than normal back muscles (Smidt,1983 and Mayer,1985 and Mayer,1989 and Roy,1989 and Cassisi,1993). On this basis, I feel that a book on treating back pain should not be ignoring these important findings and should address this issue with at least one strengthening exercise. I recommend this book but don't forget to do an exercise that will strengthen your back muscles too.
