Review:

Some spine physicians estimate that half of the back and neck surgeries performed in the United States may be unnecessary. Treat Your Back Without Surgery puts you in charge of the relief and prevention of back and neck pain. Author Stephen Hochschuler, M.D., a board-certified orthopedic surgeon specializing in spine surgery and cofounder of the Texas Back Institute, and coauthor Bob Reznik, who developed the Texas Back Institute Back Pain Hotline, teach you how your spine works, what the causes of pain are, and what you can do about it. Recommended pain relievers include first-aid remedies, spine injections, Tai Chi, and acupuncture. The book also describes lesser-known therapies, such as the Alexander Technique, Rolfing, reflexology, Aston Patterning, and Ayurvedic medicine. Clear, well-illustrated exercises show exactly what to do to make your back stronger, more flexible, and injury resistant. You'll learn how to lift, stand, sit, drive, sleep, and play recreational sports to minimize back stress. Because sometimes self-help isn't enough, Hochschuler and Reznik also discuss when you should go to the doctor and, as your last resort, how to choose a surgeon. Put this book in the hands of anyone suffering back pain and especially anyone considering back surgery. --Joan Price
