“Back Pain Relief Plan is an informative, evidenced-based, patient-focused resource for anyone experiencing or looking to lessen the likelihood of lower back pain. Dedicated chapters that introduce the reader to the mechanisms and causes of pain, common risk factors, and diagnoses and treatment for back conditions assist the back pain sufferer in understanding their condition before beginning an active exercise program. Dr. Fishman then guides the layperson through easy-to-understand, safe, effective, and progressive exercises augmented with excellent illustrations. I highly recommend Back Pain Relief Plan for anyone searching for low back pain solutions.
