Back Pain Sucks...Don't Take it Lying Down! has been designed primarily to be used as a 'workshop manual', providing information and exercise prescriptions to assist patients, doctors, physiotherapists, psychologists and other health-care providers, thereby informing and empowering chronic back-pain sufferers. From the contents of this book a thorough understanding of both the physical and psychological factors involved in chronic back pain can be gained. Jamie Martins is a physical trainer and back pain rehabilitation specialist. He's been 'in the trenches' so to speak, working hands on, in conjunction with physiotherapists, chiropractors, osteopaths and doctors, treating clients with chronic back problems for many years now, both in New Zealand and overseas. This book offers self-help to sufferers of back pain. Essentially, Jamie's aim is to replicate the one-on-one approach he takes with his clients, which allows him the necessary time to understand and address each individual's particular set of physical and psychological circumstances - which are usually as varied as the individuals themselves.
He then implements an optimistic mindset and a results-based workout regimen to set them off along the path to positive progress, calling this method of treatment 'assisted self-help'. The author provides, with text, diagrams and photographs, information about what causes back pain, how to avoid back pain, how to manage back and, importantly, how to treat the pain with exercises that will also maintain back health.
