Most of what you have been told about back pain is completely wrong. Now, for the frst time, Dr. Patrick Roth shares his groundbreaking and highly efective plan to alleviate back pain. His progressive and innovative approach will reveal how:

  • Pain medications can cause more pain.
  • Weight loss does not improve back pain.
  • you know your body best. That makes you smarter than your doctor.

This back-strengthening program goes far beyond traditional abdominal core work to strategically target your "hidden core," including all the vital front, side, and back muscles that line, stabilize, and support the spine. Dr. Roth empowers your body and mind to remarkably decrease the frequency, intensity, and duration of back pain, giving you true and lasting relief.

Editorial Reviews

Carl B. Heilman
Dr. Roth’s ‘stackable’ exercise program is designed to strengthen the muscles on all sides of the spine, providing an inner support structure to minimize back pain. If patients are willing to put forth the effort Dr. Roth prescribes, most will be able to take control of their back pain future.
Steven Kirshblum
For those suffering from low back pain, Dr. Roth offers a unique program that combines the body and mind in a clear, thorough, and meaningful way.
Richard D. Guyer
I highly recommend this book to any back pain sufferer who is interested in controllingtheir back pain. In fact I will make this required reading for spine fellow surgeons that train with us every year.
Walter Bortz II
Dr. Roth’s book addresses one of the greatest embarrassments of American Medicine, treatment of back pain. The current system rather than helping this epidemic condition actually acts as a co-conspirator through wrong counsel and practice. Dr. Roth’s book is the antidote to this mal-practice.
Michael Kelly
The unique approach so clearly presented in Dr. Roth’s “The End of Back Pain” is an outstanding and simple way to conquer your pain and improve your quality of life. Understanding and treating your “hidden core” will assuredly help you as it did me.

    Novel and Optimistic

    Is it possible to heal back pain without surgery? With millions of people suffering from back pain throughout the world, patients demand answers. In "The End of Back Pain: Access Your Hidden Core to Heal the Body", Patrick Roth, M.D. hopes to address the physical and emotional devastation brought on by back pain.




    In his book, Roth delves into the unfortunate consequences of having a weak core. He addresses the fact that many doctors are quick to prescribe medications or to suggest surgery. Roth, on the other hand, addresses the power of movement and muscle in aligning your spine. According to Roth, "pain medications can cause more back pain" and "you know your body best," do drugs really sound like the answer?




    One of the most helpful facets of Roth's book is his exercise program. Designed to strengthen your core muscles, this plan has been designed by the author in an effort to relieve chronic pain symptoms. Roth's successful career as a neurosurgeon makes him a great fit to write this book. His style has been described as "novel and optimistic."




    Like Human Movement Potential: Its Ideokinetic Facilitation, Roth's text will encourage readers to see the body in a new light. Not only that, but readers will feel empowered to take control. "The End of Back Pain" is a thought-provoking and philosophical read for anybody who has been exploring the topic of movement and back pain.

    Exactly!

    This concept will be an uphill battle because of how the US healthcare system is set up. The author beautifully put what I already believe about back pain in this book. Rehabilitating our bodies to make them strong HAS to start with a healthy mind.
