Fixing pain involves more than just stretching or strengthening muscles; it requires your attention to how you move. Poor movement creates weak or tight muscles which then reinforce poor habits creating a cycle of pain. Rick teaches you which muscles are at the root of your pain as well as how this creates painful movement. He then shows you how to break this cycle.
Fixing You: Back Pain is part of the Fixing You series addressing chronic or recurring pain in the entire body. Rick simplifies complicated medical problems helping you distill the causes of your pain down to a few simple issues. His explanations remove the mystique of back pain and show you why it is the easiest area of pain for him, and now you, to treat.
