More richly detailed and in-depth than his previous books, this volume is illustrated with over 100 photos and liberally peppered with real-life case histories. Starting with an analysis of how the back and neck work, it moves on to a discussion of the common causes of pain--bad posture is most often to blame. At the core is a detailed explanation of how to do the McKenzie Method exercises, when to apply them, and how to adjust your personal program over time. Included are instructions for people who suffer with acute back and neck pain (with appropriate cautions regarding when to call a medical professional) as well as for people in special situations like pregnant women, athletes, and seniors. An impassioned introduction by coauthor Craig Kubey, a satisfied convert after suffering intense back and neck pain as a result of several auto accidents, could very well make a believer out of anyone. --Marianne Painter --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
This was a good book for those with back and neck problems. I had pain in my shoulder blade that I was pretty sure came from my neck. Read morePublished 3 days ago by Norma Rockwell

Robin McKenzie's program to treat back pain is a well-known classic that really works! I purchased this copy as a gift to a very grateful relative.
This book is a life changer, I've used it and I'm giving it to friends now. Like it says, it's the only resource out there that tells you how to crack your own back. Read morePublished 28 days ago by Nate
This book is so much like other "pain-free" books -- full of blather. I am kicking myself for buying it.Published 1 month ago by Arizona Quilter
