Limited use, if you have limited movement!,
This review is from: The BackSmart Fitness Plan: A Total-Body Workout to Strengthen and Heal Your Back (Paperback)
The aims of this book revolve around being able to do the daily yoga & pilates stretches. I think if you can do these, you probably don't need to buy this book?!
If you have the stiffnes/loss of mobility associated with low back pain, and can't get into the yoga positions as instructed, there are no suggested alternatives. The Author gives no clues what's to be done such cases.
Some cauction is needed when approaching the exercises. For people with 'bad backs' some of them look a little 'heavy' and need to be worked towards. For the rest of the book, the suggested exercises are useful, as is the generic advice given.

I really don't think this person put much thought into reading the book. For clearly there are no yoga poses in this book! After many emails from readers around the world who have suffered from back pain found this book very helpful in getting them back on the road to exercising and reducing their pain. I thought how unfortunate such a review has been written with misinformation. The book offers a beginner , intermediate and advance level of exercises protocol for anyone willing to make an effort towards improving their health and fitness level. Please read other reviews that others have written. Also with today's Google reader's can see for themselves the recommended exercises. As always reader's can visit my website and email questions.
