Tom says, “When Stu McGill speaks, therapists listen. Every once in a while, a book comes along which (excuse me) cuts through the BS and lays it on the line. This book is that rare animal – it dispels the many myths about back pain and lays out a program for self-care that is both practical and sound advice for any bodyworker, and also understandable for the lay reader. Stu’s long years of experience in every aspect of both performance enhancement and rehabilitation make this a book every therapist should have at hand.”
All back pain has a cause – your challenge is to identify your specific cause and address it. The modern medical system, with 15 minute appointments does not provide the opportunity for a back pained sufferer to obtain a thorough and precise diagnosis of their pain mechanism. They are left without a guide of what to do to fix their back pain.
Back Mechanic, by Stuart McGill PhD, guides you through a self-assessment of your pain triggers, then shows you how to avoid these roadblocks to recovery. Whether you’re struggling with a disc bulge, stenosis, spondylolisthesis, muscle strain, or even leg pain associated with a herniated disc, you will be able to wind down your discomfort and match your unique symptoms with the approach that is right for you. Then effective exercises are coached in a step by step progressive guide. Many questions are answered that have eluded answers in the past. Spine expert, Prof. McGill used his 30 years of research findings and clinical investigations to create this evidence-based guide that has helped thousands reclaim their lives. This knowledge is now available to you in this richly illustrated book. You will become your own best Back Mechanic and advocate.
