Overview

Every human being suffers from back pain at some point in life. In an effort to find relief, people turn to a wide variety of treatments, and to doctors who will prescribe narcotic painkillers. What they don't realize is that many of these treatments -- especially narcotic drugs -- actually interfere with their body's own ability to heal and overcome pain. When these treatments fail to help, they desperately conclude that surgery is their only option for relief. In his new book 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 provides a detailed questionnaire that allows you to identify which of seven types of back pain you are experiencing, and then he explains each of those types in clear and 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 spinal pain. In his 35 years of experience, he has found that the vast majority of back pain cases will resolve with minimal treatment. In fact, the very best thing you can do is to simply allow your body to heal itself by avoiding the many treatment 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. With an interesting collection of anecdotes and a frank discussion of the pitfalls that come with many of the back-pain treatments out there, Back and Neck Pain: Walk It Off! will give you fresh, new insight into how your back really works and how to finally find healthy relief from your back pain.
