Aged 32, I would wake up a broken man every morning, due to musscle tension in the the upper back and neck. Also, I would suffer from debilitating headache from time to time. This book taught me simple and safe stretching techniques. I'm now virtually painfree if I do my daily exercises... I'd recommend an other title for those who are desperate: Yoga, the paht to holistic health, by BKS Iyengar. This man was Dr. Schatz's yoga-teacher, and this book in particular is a must have.

This book helped has helped me to recover from a debilitating disc rupture. It taught me exercises to do even when I was stuck in bed. The book gently teaches stretchs and strengthening exercises and has cautions and warnings for all kinds of back problems. It also had helpful information for dealing with the reality of life with an injured back, including relapses and how to cope physically and emotionally. Highly recommended. I have better posture and the essential body awareness needed by us back pained people.

This book has great information about how to take care of your back. I am a massage therapist/ health educator and I am constantly using this book to refer my clients to it's content about caring for their backs. Back care is something we all need to learn about for a healthier, more comfortable life. As a health educator, I highly recomend this book. Mahalo.

Suza Francina, author, The New Yoga for People Over 50, Mayor Pro-Tem from Ojai, California, writes:
"I have been teaching yoga to people of all ages for over 25 years. One of the most common reasons people begin a yoga class is to get rid of their aches and pains. I can say with complete confidence that of all the books I've read on therapeutic exercise for back and neck pain relief, Dr. Schatz book offers by far the most effective, individualized approach to a healthy back.
Back Care Basics goes beyond generic exercises and takes into account each person's special circumstances. It is a lifesaver for people caught in the viscious cycle of pain and fear. I have referred to it countless times creating yoga based exercise programs for people in chronic pain. In fact, almost my entire copy is highlighted or underlined!
If you or someone you love is suffering from back or neck pain, I encourage you to educate yourself by reading this book. I also hope that other health professionals working with people with back problems--chiropractors, massage and physical therapists, acupuncturists,etc., will read this book and leave it in their waiting room. Chiropractors tell me that patients who are practicing yoga rarely have acute back pain and their adjustments hold longer. People with back and neck problems benefit more from other therapies if they practice the gentle yoga program taught in Back Care Basics.

Format: Paperback
I am really learning a lot from this book. I have had problems with my back and neck since I was very young, mostly muscle tension, which was complicated by a repetitive stress injury from working on the computer. The pain has been pretty constant for the last eight years, and I finally had to stop using ibuprofen to avoid toxification. Yikes! I thought I knew something about relaxing, but the breathing technique recommended by Dr. Schatz has given me a sensation of relaxation I had never felt before. The evaluation section helped me to isolate my problem areas and determine which yoga exercises I should do. The exercises are simple and effective: my energy level is increasing and I am not in as much pain.

I am a 55 year old guy who has been a builder for 40 years and a loose head prop till age 42. Yes I have back trouble!!
After decaades of debilitating episodes and regular expensive manipulations to gain only temporary relief YOGA was mentioned.

The key word for me in the title was 'gentle' as I've found in the past that many Yoga and Pilates stretches have only served to make my back and neck problems worse. This one however, is really helpful, particularly the diagnostic section at the start, which enabled me to target my specific problem areas with the best exercises. The book takes the reader through a very gradual approach, starting with general relaxation, followed by 'home base' stretches which are good for everyone - very gentle and help to get the body into stretching mode. The book then goes on to the specific exercises for problem areas. It truly is a gentle approach to pain relief.

I have tried Pilates and Yoga to help with my lower back pain, with mixed results. Trying to do full workouts from my Iyengar book did not help, possibly because I was overdoing it. The excercises in this book seem easy, but if done as described, make a lot of difference. Recommended.
