Format: Paperback
The "Bonnie Prudden Way" is called "myotherapy", since it concentrates on muscles as the root cause of most pain. Even pain that isn't normally considered muscular, like migraine headaches (called "vascular" as opposed to "muscle-tension") responds to myotherapy. I know from experience with myself and others. The same is often true of pain caused by spine misalignment (which may be caused by muscles in the back pulling the spine out of alignment) or even tendinitis (muscles under trauma often block circulation, leading to inflammation). The plain fact of the matter is, 90+% of pain can be cured by myotherapy, and this book does a VERY good job of teaching the technique.
Bonnie Prudden's writing style is refreshingly straight forward and pragmatic. She tells what works and what doesn't, and how to get results. You won't read about "harmony" or "balance" or "energy flows"; she just tells you what to do to make the pain go away. The chapters in the book are arranged by body regions, starting from the head and working downwards. Be forewarned, however, that you can't cure a headache just by reading the chapter on the head. Most headaches (even migraines) are rooted in the neck and shoulders. Backaches are often rooted in the legs and feet. So read all of the chapters before you start practicing.
The latter portion of the book is devoted to stretching and toning exercises. They are designed to provide maximum benefit with minimum trauma, and are quite effective. Bonnie Prudden is a physical therapist, so she is well-qualified to write on the subject.
In short, if you're suffering from pain, or know someone who is, get this book. You won't be sorry.

I was very interested in this book based on the reviews. I was able to look at it at the library before buying it. To my surprise, almost everything in the book requires two people. The book is more like an instruction book for a physical therapist. If you are looking for a book that you can use by yourself, I highly recommend The Trigger Point Therapy Workbook by Clair Davies.

Format: Paperback
I have been using this method for years and have had success both for my chronic back pain as well as for relieving asthma attacks. I have had back problems since I was a child and although chiropractic did (and does) wonders for me, Bonnie Prudden's techniques have eased more of the pain than I could have ever hoped for. Using these proven techniques gets the muscles out of spasm so that my chiropractor can get my spine adjusted - and in turn get rid of the associated leg cramps, etc. So much of Ms. Prudden's technique can be done on yourself with the correct tools. All it takes is the patience to study the trigger points and practice the techniques.
Bonnie Prudden saved my sanity when I couldn't even walk because of the pain! I would highly recommend the book to anyone who isn't getting relief through other methods. I have even ordered the book for my chiropractor!

Format: Paperback
When you're in pain, nothing seems too extreme in the pursuit of relief. Bonnie Prudden's writing easily demystifies the subject and gives a comprehensive way to reduce and in many cases erase pain totally. It works! It really works! The book is written in a personal and conversational style--clever, witty and wise. It is easy to understand and easy to implement. The exercises which are required in the therapy are unique in that they employ only full range of motion movements: some are not as glamourous as those of the spandex-clad exercise classes, but the biomechanical accuracy of Bonnie's stretches and strengthening regiments are based on decades of research and success. I thank god for having discovered all of Bonnie's writings and hope everyone receives as much benefit as my students and I have in our quest for a quality and pain-free life.

Format: Paperback
After my wife exhausting every "traditional" method of relief for a severe case of plantar fascitis (swelling of the plantar muscle under the foot) I decided to seek an alternative view to pain correction. Traditional therapy treatments, pain killers and an assortment of drugs didn't work. I happened to run across Ms. Prudden's book and simply thought, "What can it hurt?" This was, I admit, a rather unusual birthday present, but she was in so much pain she could hardly walk by the end of the day. We faithfully applied the techniques as outlined in this book and the swelling under her foot disappeared in a matter of weeks, as did the pain. Since then, we have applied Ms. Prudden's methods for neck spasms, back strains, etc. In fact, I'm here to buy this book for one of our good friends who is battling the same foot condition that caused my wife such terrible pain. Buy this book and try it. What do you have to loose?

Format: Paperback
After experimenting with far less-thorough forms of treatment (chiropractic, standard western (incompetent) medicine) for a mysterious condition that made my feet get floppy and some of the toes cramp excruciatingly, I remembered I had bought this book a few years ago. I pulled it out, read it, zeroed in on the problem and have virtually eliminated it from my life within a week of starting the therapy this book guides the reader through. (The problem had existed for about 5 weeks; longer-lived problems that are helped by this work can take longer to fully relieve.) For this little money there's no reason not to try it. Just make sure to follow the directions, and don't forget to do the stretching and conditioning exercises that are recommended -- they are integral to the effectiveness of the treatment. This is something you can do at home (even by yourself -- got a tennis ball?), whenever you need to. If you're in pain, don't pass it up. It is safe and drug-free.
