A different spin on identifying and treating back pain.

There are some drawings in this book, but they are rather simple.

What I did like, was the Doctor’s lessons he learned from his patients. The use of alternative treatments. His suggestion to get the right diagnosis and then get the right treatment because often it’s a wrong diagnosis with the right treatment or right diagnosis with wrong treatment. There is a mind-body component to back pain. Using antidepressants to treat back pain.

Some new information for me in this one. I've looked at so many books on back pain in the past couple of months, and most repeat the same advice (but in a way that is helpful, as well). A few new practices to try here. If this had been the first one I'd read, I would be more impressed.

The emphasis on the mind/body connection cannot be overstated - attitude is everything.

I found this book to be very enlightening. Dr. Stern does not just offer one method over another for how to heal your back. In fact, there is no promotion of surgery. Which I am happy about and don't believe that surgery is the answer to everything. If you listen to your body, it can tell you exactly what is wrong.

That is what Dr. Stern explores in this book. This book is broken out into five different steps to helping readers understand their bodies; particularly their back. While, I did like

The book is good if you are new to baxk pain as it gives you information that is fairly general, but to ke it lacks the deep information I was expecting as I have a back pain condition since a very long time (it is osteoblastoma and the book doesn't even mentions it)

Fairly easy to read and understand. The author emphasizes the importance of a correct diagnosis. I didn't read it word for word, but it seemed useful and has good diagrams and a good index.

Informative. But maybe a little to heavy on the mind/body connection.
