by Johannes H. Heilmann
     
 

Have you ever suffered from acute back pain and didn't know how to help yourself? Did the pain attacks come in the evening, on weekends, or during business trips in an unfamiliar city, where medical help was not immediately available and every movement hurts? Perhaps you were uncertain: Should I call the emergency service or can I somehow relieve the pain on my own

Overview

Have you ever suffered from acute back pain and didn't know how to help yourself? Did the pain attacks come in the evening, on weekends, or during business trips in an unfamiliar city, where medical help was not immediately available and every movement hurts? Perhaps you were uncertain: Should I call the emergency service or can I somehow relieve the pain on my own? And later, when you were probably feeling better again, you probably asked yourself: What can I do to avoid these kinds of problems in the future?

This book will answer these and many other questions related to healthy ailing backs. But one thing is certain: The back has a large influence on our wellbeing. The spine forms the central axis of the body. It gives us support and enables us to move. At the same time, this axis is a "problem zone" for many people. Almost everyone has had an experience with back pain, and statistics prove that it is one of the most frequent reasons for doctor appointments, sick days, and stays in the hospital.

This book cannot replace a visit to the doctor. But it does show you ways to prevent back problems or find relief if you are suffering from acute pain. Through a conscious change of posture, behavior, and the way you move – as well as by specifically strengthening musculature – you can do quite a lot to help your back. In addition, this guide will tell you which examinations the doctor will perform and what type of treatments may be prescribed.
