Treat Your Own BackHelping thousands of back pain sufferers worldwide this book offers do it yourself relief of lower back pain through postural changes ergonomics and simple exercises It provides a c I have had lower back issues on and off for years In 2012 had an MRI which confirmed herniated discs in the lower lumbar L5 S1 This book was recommended to me once when my back was out so I promptly ordered it and put it on a shelf One time while I was laying in bed with my back out in a terrible position by the way I figured what did I have to lose I was bedridden for the day so I should read the book The book is well written cuts to the chase explains the 'why' of it but most importantly helps I sort of rolled off the bed to the floor and started doing the recommended exercises I did them throughout the afternoon and saw immediate improvement Like many of us I soon forget about the stretches when my back feels better so eventually my back would start acting up and I would go to the Chiro for an adjustment Which by the way was pretty successful Until this last time A long flight and slinging luggage onto conveyor belts did it for me When I got home I was too busy to see the Chiro so I put it off By the time I went I think my back was in full spasm mode and it just didn't work It progressively got worse without me taking it as seriously as I should have and then I finally tried just about everything I could think of expect re reading this book I was practically immobile at time Especially going from sitting to standing or getting out of the car The only relief I had was laying down on my back At times I was in tears and watching days go by where I couldn't do normal things or participate in life especially with my kids My husband had to pick up all the slack I just turned 40 If I'm like this now what does the future hold? From there I saw a sports musclechiropractor a deep tissue body mechanics PT and did 2 sessions of accupuncture and cupping I had a couple hours of relief after seeing each of these people partially due to the fact that I was laying on my back during treatment But none of them provided any real relief All 3 agreed I needed an MRI I finally broke down and went to an orthopedist who did and xray and confirmed the compression and got an MRI ordered A couple days ago I had my worst day and decided to re read this book I have committed to doing exactly as it says I set a timer on my phone for every two hours and will do it if I'm in pain It's only day 2 and I have significantly less pain than two days ago I ordered lumbar support for the carhomework so I'm not undoing the benefit of the stretches I'm going to keep it up because I can't live like this and even in just two days plus previous experience I have a sliver of hope that I can get back to normal Today I went to work office and had the least amount of pain I could remember in a long time I'm so encouraged I strongly recommend this book And I also recommend that you do it diligently right away Don't wait until you are completely tweaked

Well I have to say that I still believe I do have an underlying problem and the studies that have been done seem to bear this out that these exercises probably cannot ultimately fix a long term problem I have done an MRI and do seem to have some protruding discs and suchlike It's an anatomical fact you probably have to live with and things like bad sleeping posture merely exacerbate it So this book doesn't promise to cure you of your back condition But what it has done is helped relieve me of most of the symptoms in a way I really couldn't have hoped for So if you have debilitating lower back pain you'd be crazy not to at least try and follow this book I am going to give a copy to my doctor who also suffers from lower back pain

Content new photos and numerous pages of education and clinically proven exercises utilizing the renowned McKenzie Method®Written by Robin McKenzie Illustrated Softcover; 112 pages I think this book got me on the road to recovery I have a prolapsed disc S1L5 pressing on a nerve I used all the extension exercises to great effect but didn't dare try the flexion ones as I was concerned this may enourage the disc further out Probably me being paranoid as I've been so ill with my back The language and instructions are extremely clear indeed so you're never in doubt that you're doing something incorrectly It is very confidently written and fills you with optimism Recommended
