"Back pain can destroy lives. Often people just learn to live with it, suffering with little more than a few pain killers to get them through each day. Chances are they've tried every supposed remedy going, spent precious time and money on expert advice and yet still find simple tasks like putting away the groceries or getting out of a car an ordeal. As a practising GP, I come across people like this virtually every day. In "Beat Back Pain", I use my years of experience to guide you through a myriad of (often conflicting) advice. I will help you to better understand what triggers your problem and what may alleviate it. I may not be able to cure your bad back, but I can help you live with it more comfortably." Dr Ruth Chambers. What's it about? Back problems make people's lives a misery.
