Overview

Back pain alters everyone's life at one time or another. It is the second leading reason people will visit a health care provider. Most treatments are not based on science; most are passive, and most are ineffective or even harmful. The P.R.E.S.T.O.N. Protocol looks at the best practices based on the latest scientific evidence and presents it in a way so anyone reading will be able to manage their back pain. These best practices include the power of placebo-the mind-body connection; the value of reassurance-that rarely back pain is of a serious nature; evidence-based medicine (EBM)-its foundation; spinal manipulation-when does it help and when can it be deadly; therapies-feel good but do they work or create dependence; your job-what role does your occupation play in recovery; and finally the concept of natural history-your back pain has one do; you know what it is? By understanding the seven best practices, you can manage your back pain while enjoying your life.
