Written by a clinical psychologist, a market research consultant with a background in counseling and a rehabilitation specialist, the book combines conventional and alternative approaches to treatment.
At the core of their regimens, however, is the premise that most chronic back pain is caused by stress, fear, muscle tension and inactivity � not, as most sufferers assume, by damaged or weakened spinal structures.
My exercise and diet routine really made me feel better. However, my stress level and muscle tension has been though the roof the past couple of weeks and there are some times I can barely move due to the excruciating pain.
I am going to give this book a shot, for ten bucks and change, it seems to be worth it.
I have found it helpful to do the stretching exercises my physical therapist recommends. Do some core strengthening exercises, such as the ones highlighted at The Mayo Clinic. By keeping your core strong, your back won't put itself in a position to cause that sciatica pain you are having.
