Book News
Based on the author's research results which quantify the forces that specific movements and exercises impose on the low back, the book challenges commonly prescribed practices for avoiding back injury and provides alternative strategies to offset injuries and restore function. Guidelines for the prevention and rehabilitation of low back problems focus on ensuring a stable spine while also addressing patients who have too much stiffness and crush their spines with chronic contraction. Numerous black and white photos illustrate exercise sequences. The third edition adds a companion website containing 20 printable handouts and 17 video clips of the exercises.
