Sarah Key's Back Sufferer's Bible
The first book showing how, in easily followed steps, you can treat your own back pain. Unlike the author's previous book Back In Action, which gives information on the range of treatments available for different back problems, The Back Sufferer's Handbook places emphasis on the contribution the sufferer can make putting the problem right. In language that every back pain sufferer will find completely understandable, it describes each spinal disorder and what causes the pain. It gives helpful back exercises with information about what they will achieve and how frequently they should be done. There is also advice on back pain management, the role of medication, the use of bed rest and how to return to work. This book is essential reading both for the patient confined to bed with acute back pain, and for someone with less severe back problems, but still having to cope with back pain or discomfort on an everyday basis.

Back to Life
Back pain is very hard (often impossible) to diagnose and to specify, hence heavy painkillers are thrown at people. But the only way to beat the pain is to understand it. Based on cutting-edge research into back pain and the psychology of pain itself, David Rogers and Grahame Brown have set up the Functional Restoration Service at the Royal Orthopaedic Hospital in Birmingham - the UK's leading centre for back pain. Here they have developed the pioneering BIOPSYCHOSOCIAL approach- BIO - How your body processes pain; what physical triggers you have and why; where your body holds pain PSYCHO - where your pain is coming from; what exactly your pain is; the power of your mind to deal with and stop pain SOCIAL - all the environmental factors that will contribute to your back pain, and how, why and when to change them Based on this revolutionary and already hugely successful approach, Back to Life offers a whole new way of dealing with back pain- - Understand the psychology of pain - Debunk the myths - Find the source of your pain - Manage your pain - including all the emotions and anxiety that go with it - Master exercises and stretches - Identify and solve the social factors - Get lasting relief

The Good Back Guide
"More than 50% of the UK's population report regular back pain with the amount of working time lost in the region of 119 million days a year. Not everyone has the time - or money - to visit chiropractors or osteopaths. Barrie Savory is one of Britain's leading osteopaths and will draw on his many years of research, teaching and practice to provide an easy to follow guide to how we can all protect our backs and, if the damage has already been done, treat injuries and prevent further strain. Savory looks at the way in which we, as human beings, put our bodies through a series of potentially harmful positions as we go about our daily lives - from the way we get out of bed in the mornings, travel to work, sit at our desks, carry our shopping, watch TV - not to mention injuries through sex. Full of advice on diet, exercise, posture and relaxation, this guide is also acked with exercises that can be performed safely and easily at home to treat strains and injuries."
