Back pain manifests itself in many different forms, attacks without warning, and damages its victims' physical and emotional health. Everyone suggests a different cure for the effects of a weak core: surgeons want to cut, chiropractors want to adjust, physical therapists want to perform physical therapy.nbsp; In The End of Back Pain, neurosurgeon Patrick Roth, M.D., reveals that, more often than not, back pain is caused by a set of underdeveloped core muscles that control the stability and alignment of the spine that are not being used. He details a specialized exercise program to strengthen and develop those muscles to relieve, control, and even prevent chronic pain.

The End of Back Pain helps patients view the body from a totally different perspective, and inspires readers to push their bodies in order to cure its maladies. After years of treating back pain, Dr. Roth has seen time and time again that a back that is not used to its full capacity is a back that is unhealthy. When we don't use our backs, we are not utilizing the core set of muscles designed to help us stay strong, increase stamina, and look our very best.

I have learned so much from this book! In places it is a bit technical because the spine is technical, but otherwise it is easy to read.
Written by a back surgeon, but one who is clearly brilliant. If you have back pain or know someone who does, get this book!
I think I will buy myself a copy to have for all-time.
By the way, don't expect a quick and easy cure. But you will be smarter about your back pain and gain some expectation for improvement over time.
There is no information for people suffering from scoliosis.
