Medical Experts Respond to Back Sense

"I highly recommend this wonderful book to everyone with back pain. The first of my patients who read it got out of bed and off narcotics for the first time in months. We’re both thrilled."

"Back Sense is a well-researched, well-written, and approachable book on a subject that occupies enormous amounts of time, effort, and money in the health care system: chronic back pain. The book explains important new discoveries in the physiologic and psychologic aspects of back pain, and is particularly lucid and eloquent in explaining mind-body relationships as they pertain to this area of clinical practice. The book outlines treatment regimens that can return large numbers of people to happier, more productive, and more satisfying lives. I can testify to its efficacy, both as a patient and a practitioner: this approach works. Every practitioner who sees patients with chronic back pain should have this in their library."

"At last! Back Sense is the first book, available to the public, that a person with chronic back pain could pick up and use to cure themselves. Back Sense gives a logical, reasonable and alternative view of how back pain problems develop, what maintains them, and how an individual can break the fear/anxiety cycle that creates so much suffering.

Back Sense brings radical new developments in back pain treatment to a general audience in a user-friendly format. It integrates the newest finding in the medical literature with up to date psychological treatment methods. This book will help people to discover for themselves the way to break the cycle of chronic back pain."
