Product description

Product Description

The title says it all: this book will help you permanently banish your back pain. In two logical volumes, it shows you how to feel better.

The first part makes it easy for you to understand your back pain. Using simple, clear language, it explains the structure of your spine, and demystifies many common pain-provoking conditions.

The second part offers a unique quiz that will help you to classify your injury into one of four types. In this way, you will learn how to cure your pain, not someone else’s. Then the advice flows thick and fast. You will learn clever techniques that will help you to use your spine more efficiently, and discover how to think, eat, relax, and sleep away your pain. You’ll also find useful information on exercises, x-rays, medication and muscles, plus some tips on how to choose a spinal health practitioner. Of course, all of the advice will be tailored to your specific problem.

Because the cure uses well-proven techniques, your relief won’t just last a few days or weeks. You will feel better forever.

This is a great introduction to back pain. As the title says, it only talks about the causes (the cures are in part 2). But for free, and as an intro, it was very very good. It talked about the spine in a very funny and light hearted way - I was smiling most of my way through the first few chapters. I had particular interest in the part about stress fractures because that it what I have been diagnosed with. But the other chapters were also interesting. (I have also reviewed volume 2, which was even better.)

This short book is a simple introduction to the basics of back pain. It is clearly a precursor to volume two, which is foreshadowed in the table of contents in this book. That said, it delivers on what it promises: it is an insightful explanation of the basics of the spine and how it is put together. The author uses excellent analogies to help illustrate his descriptions. The writing is clear and aimed at the layperson. Finally, you’ll never stoop to calling the pain down the back of your leg “sciatica” again – I discovered there’s much more to it than that. In summary, a great start. I hope volume 2 lives up to the promise.

I have read this first part of the 2 volume series, which was a well written and funny introduction to back pain. It talks about the main parts of the spine such as the discs, nerves and joints. Perrier does an excellent job in using analogies to explain concepts: a light bulb wearing out to show how sometimes things just "go" for no apparent reason, and using a wonky door hinge to show how a vertebra can cause your back to move awkwardly. Obviously this book does not go into the cures, but it is a very worthwhile introduction.

This is a good, simple, funny and accurate start to understanding back pain. As the author points out, this book is only the beginning, but it was a good start. I look forward to learning all the secrets in volume 2!

This book is a fine introduction to the topic of back pain. The author makes it clear that the whole program of getting rid of your problem is a three part process: first, understanding the underlying condition, then classifying your back, before finally learning the exercises and advice to fix it. This book, volume one, achieves the first part only (the other two are in the second volume, which I have also reviewed). It achieves its aims well.

Here's a sentence that I never foresaw myself writing: I really enjoyed reading about the anatomy and pathology of the spine. Normally such subjects confuse me and bore me intently, but Perrier does a good job in explaining them in a simple and engaging way. Some areas were complex, particularly the nerve chapter, but as I have sciatica I persisted, and now feel like I have a solid understanding of my problem.

The tone is friendly. The text is sprinkled with jokes and off-beat humor, which do their part in keeping you interested.
In general, I think this was a good introduction to the medical aspects of back pain, and was a worthwhile read.

In my professional life as a physiotherapist I am sometimes asked by patients to recommend a book with advice on back pain. This book (and its counterpart volume 2) will be the one I recommend fro now on, This volume has clear, readable explanations of most common pain-provoking conditions. The reader is barely aware that they are tackling some of the most difficult concepts in physical medicine. Funny and light hearted approach to a big subject.
