Top Customer Reviews
In both instances, we showed this book to our doctor and physical therapists who were impressed and gave definite approval.
It's important to keep in mind that bodywork (physical therapy..yoga... pilates) still needs to be done, but the techniques given here can actually help one reduce the need for pain meds and (as in my husband's case) possibly prevent damage that could happen before prescribed medical treatment can begin.
Thanks to the author for being so insightful that people needed this information.
I believe in this book so much I am now giving it as gifts to family and friends. If you know someone with arthritis of the hips or knees, you will be proving a life without pain for them.
