The Back Pain Book: A Self Help Guide for Daily Relief of Neck and Back Pain ... By Mike Hage, MS, PT

A physical therapist tells how to relieve back and neck pain, of which 70 million Americans suffer. Your movement and posture may be the source - or the cure - for neck and low back pain. Mike Hage shows you how to analyze your patterns of standing, bending, breathing - even thinking. Learn to adjust these patterns in every move you make, from getting out of bed and choosing the right shoes to talking on the phone and getting to work. Take control of your pain and participate in your own rehabilitation by reprogramming your body to move correctly.


I had to use The Back Pain Book by Mike Hage, MS, PT while recovering from a back injury. My therapist had me use this as a guide not only while recuperating, but to learn better ways to help myself during my life, such as correct posture while driving, walking, working at a desk, and just plain relaxing.

It has fabulous illustrations, easy to follow instructions and great exercises. The book answers what, why, how often, how long, and how much. The book is organized in such a way that you can turn to specific areas that you need to work on, and blank pages in the back to take notes on your improvements.

As stated in the book: Becoming more active in your pursuit of comfort and your ability to function means gaining greater control over your pain and the effect it has on you.
