Useful book for anyone with back pain. McGill is one of the few practitioners who combines clinical insights and 'what works' with hard experimental science and data. Follow his 'big three' and combine that with isometric strength training and you can stabilise your back pain, or even begin to reduce it. ...more

Intended for practitioners so included data I as a mere back pain sufferer didn't look at in too much detail (though good to know it's there unlike other sources of information about the back. The portions of the book I read were useful in terms of exercises and tests, though I need to really need pick up the lay-audience targeted Back Mechanic. ...more

I wish I found this book (and the author, of course) earlier in my life, it would helped me more than now. The book is very explicative for everyone who is in need for expertise upon low back problems.

Great technical read for people with back pain

This is an in-depth and scientific look at back pain research, assessment and treatment. If you're a consultant or technically minded reader you will enjoy the thorough unpacking of the topic area.

If you are not interested in this level of depth or find anatomy conversations boring or difficult I would read Back Mechanic instead. This is unashamedly as resource for the physical treatment industry.

The book is very resourceful for a sciatica sufferer like me. It is simple and full of eye-opening knowledge on how to care for my low back. I know which unsafe posture and exercises to avoid. The five-stage back training program is very make sense. I am now undergoing the rehab by focusing on stabilizing my spine first. Hopefully with time and discipline I can begin to see the results.

Excellent book. For clinicians, not laypeople, but I learned too much in any case. My basic knowledge of spinal anatomy limited but did not completely blunt my education (you should know what "microfracturing of the transverse tribeculae" means without too much wondering.). This is not for consumers. ...more

Anyone struggling with lower back injuries or working with people with lower back disorders should pick this up. Some of his ideas are pretty much a-DUH but how he effortlessly explains himself is brilliant.
