Description

Back pain is common. It's the largest single cause of sickness absence in the UK. At some point in our lives, 7 out of 10 of us will suffer from lower back pain. It can affect people of any age and has generated its own industry. In short, it's more normal to experience back pain than not. Written by a leading NHS consultant with over thirteen years' experience as a spinal surgeon, The Healthy Back will empower the reader to take control of their condition and show them the best methods of treatment available. With sections entitled Good Back, explaining how the spine works and what it's capable of, and Bad Back, which highlights everything that can go wrong, from common lower back pain to the 'red flag' symptoms which should not be ignored, The Healthy Back is as relevant to those who simply want to keep their back in good working order as those who have suffered back pain. Including a comprehensive breakdown of all the treatment options available, from traditional to alternative treatments, as well as case studies and anecdotes the reader will identify with, The Healthy Back is a positive and practical guide to keeping your spine in good working order.show more
