Synopsis: Every human being suffers from back pain at some point in life. In an effort to find relief, people turn to a wide variety of treatments, and to doctors who will prescribe narcotic painkillers. What they don t realize is that many of these treatments -- especially narcotic drugs -- actually interfere with their body s own ability to heal and overcome pain. When these treatments fail to help, they desperately conclude that surgery is their only option for relief.
In his new book Conquer Back and Neck Pain: Walk It Off!, renowned spine surgeon Dr. Mark Brown, MD, PhD, explains exactly what causes back pain and why humans are so predisposed to spinal problems. He provides a detailed questionnaire that allows you to identify which of seven types of back pain you are experiencing, and then he explains each of those types in clear and easy-to-understand language.
Contrary to what you might expect from a spinal surgeon, Dr. Brown actually advocates against turning to surgery in most cases of spinal pain. In his 35 years of experience, he has found that the vast majority of back pain cases will resolve with minimal treatment. In fact, the very best thing you can do is to simply allow your body to heal itself by avoiding the many treatment pitfalls that people with back pain commonly fall into when looking for relief. Avoiding these mistakes, along with incorporating gentle aerobic exercise, will almost always allow you to walk off your back or neck pain naturally.
With an interesting collection of anecdotes and a frank discussion of the pitfalls that come with many of the back-pain treatments out there, Conquer Back and Neck Pain: Walk It Off! will give you fresh, new insight into how your back really works and how to finally find healthy relief from your back pain.

From the Author: Since you're reading this, you're probably getting
tired of struggling with back pain. You may have tried
many types of treatments already, but so far nothing has
helped. You may be starting to wonder if surgery is the
only option that will finally let you reclaim a pain-free
life.
If you search the Internet for information on "back
pain", you will quickly find out that you are not the only
one whose back hurts. In fact, back pain is so common
that it seems everyone has had it at one time or another.
But there are many different types of back pain, and hundreds
of ways to treat it, so how are you to know what's
causing your back pain, and what you should do about it?
In my more than 35 years of studying back pain and
treating patients suffering with it, I
have developed an approach to treatment
and prevention that I recommend
to everyone I treat. My
approach is safe, effective, as painless
as it can be, and less expensive than
most other approaches!
Not a day goes by without a patient
saying, "Thank you, doctor, for explaining what I
have, what to expect, and what my options are for relief.
I feel better already!" This book contains the same advice
I give my patients: down-to-earth explanations of what is
wrong, what to expect, how to get relief, and how to prevent
the pain from recurring. It has been proven in medical
studies that an understanding of the problem is half
the cure. The object of this book is to give you: 1) an understanding
of the seven types of back pain; 2) a way to
determine which type is affecting you; and 3) information on what really
works to prevent and cure your pain.
There are many astonishing "treatments" described on the Internet
that I don't recommend, either because they are not proven to work, they
do not provide lasting relief, or because they are dangerous compared to
safer and less expensive alternatives. And, although surgery is certainly
necessary in some cases of back pain, I have found that the vast majority
of problems are cured without surgery. People often get frustrated after
trying numerous treatments and painkillers that don't solve their problem,
and they conclude that surgery is their only option for relief. What
they don't realize is that it's often the very treatments they think should
be helping them that actually
this book, I will tell you what treatments to avoid and why they may be
making you worse.
I'll also give you stories of real-life back-pain sufferers. These people
have agreed to tell you their stories in the hope that their experiences will
help you. You may very well recognize your own problem in one of these
stories and realize that you are not alone. You will read how other people
with a problem similar to yours found out what was wrong, how they found
relief, and how they avoid recurrent attacks of pain.
There are many myths surrounding back pain, such as: we have it because
we walk upright; it is all in your mind; specific back exercises will relieve
it; and good posture will prevent it from happening. However, the
facts are a bit different: most back pain is genetic; it's really your back and
not your mind; back-specific exercises may aggravate it; and good posture
does not entirely prevent you from having an attack of back pain. I will explain
why these myths, and others, are not helpful in understanding why
you suffer from back pain, and how believing in some of them may be
keeping you from getting better.
Rarely should back pain keep you from doing the things you enjoy,
like golf and sex. We do not have to suffer from it as much as we do. I
will explain when to worry and when not to worry about your pain, when
to "walk if off," when to run (hobble) for medical help, and what treatments
to avoid that may actually make your pain worse!
