Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Sciatica is not an uncommon condition-five million cases are diagnosed in the United States every year-yet effective treatment can be elusive for the acute or chronic pain, weakness, and other sensations it causes. Rehabilitation specialist Fishman (Columbia Coll. of Physicians & Surgeons) and freelance writer Ardman (Fishman's coauthor on Cure Back Pain with Yoga) aim to close this gap. They begin by explaining the causes and diagnosis of sciatica and include self-tests to perform at home. They then describe the different treatment options, including exercise, physical therapy, medication, injections, surgery, and lifestyle adjustment. This book stands out for its straightforward presentation of scientific information for lay readers and its emphasis on empowering sciatica sufferers so that they can seek out the best treatment for themselves. Suitable for public and academic libraries.-Sarah Boslaugh, Washington Univ. Sch. of Medicine, St. Louis Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.
