The best book on Back pain. A must read for anyone who is suffering from pain and is not sure about how to manage it. I thought I knew it all, but it was a real eye opener.

HASH(0x932db834) out of 5 stars With gratitude to Dr. Nathaniel Tindel............ 29 May 2007
By Kathy De George - Published on
Format: Paperback
It is with deep gratitude to Dr. Nathaniel Tindel that I take the time to write this review. Since my back trouble had remained dormant for a few hope was to not have immediate reason to read the book - but, alas.....about a week ago the back trouble reared it's ugly head again!

I found the book to be very informative and helpful. Dr. Tindel has the unique ability to clearly describe important aspects of back-pain, alternative treatments prior to considering surgery, and the proper direction to take. He does this in 'lay-persons' language without talking down to the patient. Reading the book was helpful in discerning that I was taking the right path in my own healing process as well as giving me the language needed to describe the sort of pain I was having (acute radicular pain); where it radiated from; as well as re-emphasizing the core importance of exercise and healthy diet in the healing process (and in life in general!).

All this in an easy to read, fun, writing style that made the book a quick read!

"I've Got Your Back" is a book to keep in your own personal library for quick reference as well as one to share with friends and loved ones.

HASH(0x932db888) out of 5 stars Good advice 12 May 2007
By Barbara Massey - Published on
Format: Paperback
I found this book to be informative and well written. I especially liked the advice to do anything and everything possible other than surgery before considering surgery. This book will help you be proactive in your own back care.

HASH(0x932dbcc0) out of 5 stars If you are struggling with ruptured disc, read this book. 26 Jan. 2014
By ggodzilla - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
The docs have all said that they never saw a ruptured disc larger than mine. Numbness right down to my toes and really bad pain in hip. Pain was going on for about six weeks or more, and only getting worse. The docs had no qualms about surgery -- although this book convinced me to put it off as long as possible -- although I met all criteria in the book for proceeding with surgery. I wound up having 3 epidurals and after 3rd epidural, I am finally back (after four months of real pain) to about normal. I am so thankful. I recommend this book -- and I also recommend Sarno's book on back pain. Sarno would have you believe much pain is stress related (which I agree with), but I also believe there are mechanical issues (like my ruptured disc) that are simply physical and may possibly need surgical correction. Put the surgery off as long as you can bear it (within reason) and try to allow time to heal. Lastly, McKenzie's book and physical regimen is also helppful. These are the trifecta of back books and with all three I think I have a pretty good understanding of my back and what I need to do (or not do) to take care of it. I wish you the best if you are having back pain -- it can impact every moment of your life. There is light at end of tunnel -- and hopefully surgery isn't part of the solution.

HASH(0x932dbca8) out of 5 stars gave me a whole new outlook on life with an back problem 11 Aug. 2010
By zumba pvc - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Thanks to this book I decided to go with the option of exercise over surgery. My 7th vertebra disc is completely gone. I am a fitness instructor and did not want or have the time for recovery from surgery.

Read this book and get your muscles strong. I am not a zumba,aqacise, and pilates instructor at a fitness center.

Don't give up, read the book, do the work.

HASH(0x932dd090) out of 5 stars Great book for understanding back pain!!! 10 July 2012
By Richard Lorenzo - Published on

An excellent book to read to learn about low back pain, and determine whether surgery is right for you. If you have chronic back pain, I would definately read this book!!! I finished it in 5 days because I wanted to learn about the content right away and it has helped me a lot to understand more about back pain.
