Healthy Back BasicsPaperback - 2006
End back pain--once and for all! This is more than just a workout book, though it includes plenty of valuable, well-illustrated exercises for improving posture, strengthening and stretching muscles, and relieving stress. It goes further, explaining in detail the physiology behind back strain and identifying its many potential causes so you can move quickly to alleviate the problem. Find effective ways to ease tension while sitting in poorly designed chairs, bend and lift properly, straighten up safely from a horizontal position, and "wake up" the back in the morning. The point here isn't to follow a ready-made program, but to choose the exercises that help you increase your own bodily awareness. Color photos throughout make the exercises easy to follow.
