Product description

Dr John E. Sarno is a medical pioneer whose programme has helped thousands of patients overcome their back conditions - without drugs or serious surgery. Using his latest research into TMS (Tension Myositis Syndrome), Dr Sarno goes one step further: after identifying stress and other psychological factors in back pain, he demonstrates how many of his patients have then gone on to heal themselves without exercises or other physical therapy. Find out: Why self-motivated and successful people are prone to TMS; how anxiety and repressed anger trigger muscle spasms; how people 'train themselves' to experience back pain; how to get relief from back pain within two-to-six weeks by recognising TMS and its causes. With case histories and the results of in-depth mind- body research, Dr Sarno describes how patients recognise the emotional roots of their TMS and sever the connections between mental and physical pain...and how, just by reading this book, you may start recovering from back pain today.

An interesting, well written book from a medical point of view of the links between our psychological health and physical health.
Will be a bit 'new age' for some, but it is a read well worth it if you suffer with pain that isn't responding to traditional treatment or you want to consider alteratives.
