End back pain forever : a groundbreaking approach to eliminate your suffering

Marcus, Norman J.2012
" From a leading pain management expert, a revolutionary book about ending back pain the #1 cause of debilitating pain in people under age forty through treatment of muscles and tendons, rather than through medication or surgeries. Eight out of ten adults in the United States will experience significant back pain during their lifetimes. We spend close to $86 billion annually on treating neck and back pain, but are getting worse results. Spinal surgery failures are as high as 50 percent. Now, Dr. Norman Marcus offers a radically different approach to easing the pain of millions: Sprains and strains are the #1 cause of back pain, and Dr. Marcus explains how muscles are the culprit, rather than the discs and nerves. At the core of No More Back Pain are twenty-one simple exercises that can be done at home, each accompanied by step-by-step instructions and illustrations. First developed by Dr. Hans Kraus, father of the field of sports medicine who was one of John F. Kennedy's back doctors, these exercises have been refined by Dr. Marcus for optimal results. In addition to chapters on pregnancy and aging, Dr. Marcus provides an abundance of tips and tools so readers can find the best course of treatment to end their pain"--"By the director of Muscle Pain Research at NYU School of Medicine and the former president of the American Academy of Pain Medicine, a revolutionary book about solving back pain through muscle strengthening, increased flexibility, and electrostimulation, rather than through medicine or surgery"--
