Overview

In Conquer Back and Neck Pain: Walk It Off!, renowned spine surgeon Dr. Mark Brown, MD, PhD, explains exactly what causes back pain and why humans are so predisposed to spinal problems. He includes a detailed questionnaire to help you identify which of the seven types of back pain you are experiencing, and then he explains each of those types in easy-to-understand language. Contrary to what you might expect from a spinal surgeon, Dr. Brown actually advocates against turning to surgery in most cases of back pain, and he warns against many other pitfalls that people with back pain commonly fall into when looking for relief. Avoiding these mistakes, along with incorporating gentle aerobic exercise, will almost always allow you to "walk off" your back or neck pain naturally.

Editorial Reviews

Midwest Book Review

Conquer Back & Neck Pain: Walk it Off! is highly recommended for sufferers of back and neck pain, and for community library health collections.

Library Journal

With this well-organized, easy-to-follow book, spine surgeon Brown (emeritus, orthopedics & rehabilitation, Univ. of Miami) helps sufferers of back and neck pain make informed decisions about when to seek treatment for their pain. He begins by describing seven different types of back pain, providing a checklist to help readers identify which type they are experiencing, then illustrates various situations that make clear when sufferers can walk off the pain and when they should seek help immediately. Brown advises against surgery in most cases, instead espousing light aerobic exercise as an effective means of treatment. He defines medical terms and describes medical procedures (e.g., magnetic resonance imaging) in great detail as well as provides many helpful-though at times too small-illustrations. The chapter on prevention could have been expanded to include more information, but, all told, the book is quite useful. Recommended for large public libraries and large consumer health collections.
