Book Description

11 July 2013
According to recent figures, back pain has now reached epidemic proportions with millions of people across the globe experiencing severe muscular pain every year - in fact, over 4 million people now input 'lower back pain' into Google every month. Most are suffering completely unnecessarily, as the root cause of their pain stems primarily from poor postural habits while performing everyday actions. In the last decade alone, the number of people in the UK who have suffered from back pain has risen to nearly 50% of the population.

But help is at hand with Back in Balance, an easy-to-understand practical book designed to help readers discover the cause of their own individual back problem and offer them an effective and lasting solution to their suffering. This essential guide draws on many of the principles of the Alexander Technique, a practical way of releasing muscular tension throughout the body. Helping the reader to discover how their posture and movements may be having a detrimental effect on their health, this guide offers new ways of performing daily activities, with the aim of reducing muscular tension and stress on the bones and joints - and making their lives pain free.

5.0 out of 5 stars A really great book 28 Sep 2013
Format:Paperback
I found this book really, really helpful. I have had a bad back for eight years without realising why. I have spent a small fortune on chiropractors and physiotherapist, but got only short term relief at best and often not even that. After reading this book and putting some of the ideas into practise I could feel the difference after less than a week.

I know this may sound crazy, but i had been bending my back instead of my hips without realising it. No wonder i was in so much pain! i have no hesitation in highly recommending this book to anyone with back pain.

4.0 out of 5 stars Back in Balance 21 Oct 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book was very interesting. I have read it once and I can understand why it is a good idea to read it again and to put into practice the exercises as I read it again.
