6 of 6 people found the following review helpful By J. R. Stern on January 13, 2005
Format: Paperback
I checked out this book from the library, and after using it for several weeks, decided it would be cheaper to buy the book than pay the library fines. The book provides lots of very useful information on how to manage back pain. Using techniques in the book I was able to recover from a herniated disc much faster than my doctor expected. I gave it 4 of 5 stars only because I found the planning lists at the end of every chapter a bit of overkill. Having fewer lists would have gotten it 5 stars.

1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By Andrea Schaefer on November 14, 2010
Format: Paperback
My husband suffers from Ankylosing Spondylitis. I checked out every back book I could find at all of our local libraries to read everything I possibly could on that disease and every other type of back ailment. This was the least informative of them all, and I feel as though this book only skimmed the surface of back pain in general. Each mini section was very short, and I found some of the medication information to be incorrect (I am not a doctor but we've had quite the experience with all types of medication). I think this book would be a great place to start for someone just learning about back pain, but if you've read more in depth books, this one wouldn't teach you something you didn't already know.
