Summary

Summary

Most books on backache emphasize medication or surgery as cures. This practical guide suggests a better approach for sufferers. Using self-healing techniques to relieve pain, distinguishing back trouble from other problems, and protecting a weak back during sex or pregnancy are just a few of the topics in this thorough handbook. Over 40 black-and-white illustrations are included.
