Тоненькая методичка, а не книга.
Так что прочитать стоит каждому - объем невероятно маленький, но зато внятно описаны причины проблем с шеей и поясницей, и даны буквально полдюжины упражнений.
Впрочем, как мне показалось, сами упражнения не важны. Важно обязательно минимум каждые час-два подвигаться, расправиться. И не сидеть скрючив спину - не только потому что за это ругали родители. С тех пор совершенно стерлось из памяти, почему важно сидеть прямо, поэтому и полезна эта книжка-напоминание. Есл
While this book may be a good solution for some, perhaps even many who have neck pain, this book also encourages exercises which can be quite harmful to some with disk issues or significant arthritis issues. It really seems like the author has found a system that works well for many, but then latched on to the idea that he had the "secret cure" for nearly everyone's neck and headache issues.

This has helped me a bit so far. In fact, here are some brief notes I am using to practice. (I would recommend reading this little booklet before trying to do these exercises from what one might imagine them to be.)

In this book you will learn about the McKenzie method. You will learn what lordosis is and about centralization. Then you will be given seven exercises. The 1st one is really the basis for all of them and some people may only need to do as few as three of them.

As with all the McKenzie protocols, a wonderful help, best used with the advice of a physical therapist. Clear explanations of basic anatomy, causes of pain, exercises to prevent and treat pain, as well as postural modifications necessary to remain pain-free.

After a year of pain and disturbed sleep due to neck and upper back pain from a herniated disc, the exercises in this book have helped me be pain-free for the past few years. I highly recommend it for anyone with similar issues.

Good advice on posture and stretching exercises to relieve (and prevent) neck pain. Clearly written with lots of photos. There is a companion volume called Treat your own back.

After a year of chiropractic therapy my neck was nearly healed, but not fully. This book took me the last portion to full recovery. I can't recommend it highly enough.

A good book, and helpful for considering body mechanics and healthy ergonomic practices as well as useful stretches for both recovery and prevention of neck pain.

Exercises to help your neck feel awesome! It's essentially everything PT has tried to get me to do, but without having to go to the appointments.
