The Good Back Guide

LoveReading View on The Good Back Guide

A little out of the ordinary for Lovereading on the surface but as we all personally spend many hours sitting down reading or working at our computers we knew we would benefit from the book's advice. We also know many people who suffer daily agony from back pain. Barrie Savory is one of the country's most respected osteopaths and he believes that the world we have created for ourselves is the main cause of most of our back pain. His solution is to take charge of the situation and use the world around us as a ‘gym’ collecting points for small changes in our behaviour such as getting off the bus a stop early and walking or walking up the stairs, rather than squeeze in the lift! The book is chatty, easy to follow and as our office is on the 2nd floor of a building with lifts (that we don't use..) we are already 20 points up!

The Good Back Guide Synopsis

More than 60% of the UK's population report regular back pain with the amount of working time lost, in the region of 119 million days a year. Not everyone has the time - or money - to visit chiropractors or osteopaths. Barrie Savory is one of Britain's leading osteopaths and draws on his many years of research, teaching and practise to provide an easy to follow guide to how we can all protect our backs and, if the damage has already been done, treat injuries and prevent further strain.

Savory looks at the way in which we, as human beings, put our bodies through a series of potentially harmful positions as we go about our daily lives - from the way we get out of bed in the mornings, travel to work, sit at our desks, carry our shopping, watch TV - not to mention injuries through sex.

 

 

Full of advice on diet, exercise, posture and relaxation, this guide is also packed with exercises that can be performed safely and easily at home to treat strains and injuries.
