Format: Hardcover
This is an excellent book for personal trainers and anyone with back problems. If you want to understand the spine and all the problems associated with it this is a very technical book which at times went completely over my head. I think more than one read is necessary! However the basis of the book and the exercises contained are first class. I would not want to be without it now as I refer to it constantly for advice and guidance on exercises for my personal training clients. A must have for the library as Chris Norris certainly knows his onions!

This book contains a lot of information but I found the cure for my back problems (prolapsed disc) in a few pages about strengthening some specific areas of the lower back. Worth the money, in my view as I do the exercises regularly and have not had any real problems since.

Execellent book, written mostly for a health practitioner 12 Nov. 2002
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This is a great book by a really good author. He is very grounded in science and there are a lot of different exercises. I am someone who is working to overcome back pain and about 50% of this book is too technical for me. Like some other authors talk about, one of the key points in the book is the some back pain is caused by poor posture and alignment of the pelvis. This is central to Pilates as well. I have found this to be true, but correcting it is the tricky part.

Highly recommended! 19 Oct. 2011
By Black Cat - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This is a really good book for anyone in the personal training or health industry. I'm a Pilates instructor and the book Muscles: Testing and Function by Kendall et. al. is recommended reading to better understand posture and the way muscle tension affects the body. This book provides a lot of information that is found in Kendall's book, but is much easier to read! It explains how incorrect posture and muscle tightness can lead to back issues. It explains the core muscles and their importance. It provides instructions and illustrations on flexibility testing and strengthening exercises. I highly recommend this book!
