This best-selling book grew out of an extensive survey of what those with back problems experience and the treatments they have found that really work. Are drugs or surgery the answer? What about the many complementary therapies available? Or should you try a change of diet, daily routine and exercise? These questions and many more are answered with honesty by those who have actually tried them. Why suffer longer with this miserable and debilitating problem when you can almost certainly find something here to relieve the problem and improve your quality of life. This book covers complementary treatments, posture, surgery and drugs and also features an illustrated section of effective exercises you can perform in your own home.
