Published in 2017, this book is the ultimate guide to the relief and prevention of lower back pain. It’s a work-book which you will use to create your own plan for recovery, drawing on the knowledge gained from the heavily illustrated, easy to read text. You will put together your own action plan and exercise program, monitoring your progress with the Backscore.
Although easy to digest, the book is based on international clinical guidelines and has a strong focus on keeping your motivation front and centre. Motivation tends to fade as your pain lessens, so it’s important to have clear, meaningful goals, not just “I’d like less back pain.”
Author Gavin Routledge has 25 years of specialising in lower back pain, is a Gold Medallist from the British School of Osteopathy and has a Masters Degree in the Clinical Management of Pain. He answers questions such as:
Why is it painful at night?
Which exercises are right for my lower back?
Who should I trust to help my back?
What is a waste of time?
Should I see a doctor?
Why does it keep happening?
And many more.
