Product description

New research suggests that most back pain is caused by underdeveloped multifidus muscles, those that connect the spinal vertebrae and are crucial in bending the back. This book presents exercises to strengthen the multifidus group. Simple explanations and black-and-white drawings throughout show readers how to work with these muscles.

Customer reviews

By a Book Depository customer 10 Dec 2008 3

"Jim Johnson always produces excellent, easily read and to-the-point texts. He is able to reduce reams of proven medical research to the essential facts and then put them across to the public in a way that promotes confidence.
The content of the book makes sense as a treatment programme (perhaps that is too big a word for a minimum number of exercises) for lower back pain. I look forward to trying it."
