Jun 03, 2019I threw my back out and had a coworker (Thanks Libby) and my new PT recommend this same book on the same day. I read it, and 2 days later, I am on the right path! Assuming that trend continues, this book is magic!

Aug 25, 2010I suffered a herniated disk playing basketball and consequently experienced debilitating lower back pain. I was confined to bed for months, had sciatica, and gradually lost strength and feeling in my left leg. The pain was continual and it was hard to think clearly. I tried many things to heal my back but this is the one that worked (in conjunction with physical therapy). The thesis of this book is that much lower back pain is caused by a loss of lordosis (the curve in your lower back), and the I suffered a herniated disk playing basketball and consequently experienced debilitating lower back pain.

I tried many things to heal my back but this is the one that worked (in conjunction with physical therapy). The thesis of this book is that much lower back pain is caused by a loss of lordosis (the curve in your lower back), and the solution is to restore lower back strength and flexibility through a combination of basic exercises and stretches. I distilled this book down to two exercises (situps and reverse situps) and three stretches (knees to chest, yoga cobra, and hamstring stretch) that I continue to practice whenever my lower back pain returns. It works. ...more

Apr 09, 2012I have a herniated disc in the lower part of my spine and I recently suffered from a bout of lower back pain followed by intense sciatica running down my left leg. After about seven weeks of rest, medications and most of all, physical therapy, I am able to resume normal activity. And I have been pain free for a few weeks now. I received this book as a present from my physical therapists as I graduated from working with them to doing the exercises on my own.
Apr 03, 2008It really works. The exercises and approach here are very simple, logical and all about common sense practices that gradually get you back to full movement and strength- without pain. I don't want this review to sound like a testimonial, but the information was very useful, and I enjoyed the Australian word usage of Dr. McKenzie.

Jun 25, 2015My physical therapist started me on these exercises and recommended the book as a support when I put my back out twice in the space of 3 months. 30 years ago, I'd rejected the option of spinal fusion in the lumbar area and opted for alternatives. I haven't had much trouble until a year ago. After 6 months of referring to this clearly written book to fine tune my use of the exercises, I'm stronger than ever and looking forward to another 30 trouble-free years.
Aug 14, 2010For any that have chronic back pain or just a sore back I highly recommend this book!! Easy to read with simple but frequent excercises which really work. I have only been doing these excercises for 3 days and my back which over the last 12 months has been treated by both physiotherapists and chiropracters which has given some relief but never felt as good as it does now.

Sep 17, 2019Came recommended from a friend who is a sports doctor. My back has been out for three days and I just did a round of the rescue exercises and almost feel normal again. The change was instant, though probably won't be lasting if I don't keep up the exercises. We'll see how it fares over time, but for now I'm very impressed.
Jun 01, 2017This book was urged on me by a physical therapist who was treating me for lower back pain and sciatica. I've dealt with this condition intermittently for 30 years. The book systematizes an exercise regime for overcoming the pain and managing on-going lower (lumbar) back health. Its a short and easily understood book. One could pick it up and follow its instructions with no professional guidance, although depending on your condition, that might not be wise.
Jun 03, 2017He encourages a particular kind of stretching that supplements what my physical therapist at Kaiser encouraged me to do. I don't trust the approach that insists one must use only practitioners who are certified by a narrowly defined approach to remedying back problems. But, it is helpful
Oct 17, 2012Very informative. Lots of reminders on how important posture is. The exercises are simple! After doing them for just a couple of days I am staring to feel better.
Jun 13, 2016This book was recommended by my osteopath after an acute bout of back pain. I've been struggling with back issues for 2 years, since I was 4 months pregnant. This is info my previous physiotherapist and current osteopath were attempting to impart, presented in way that finally clicked for me.
Jun 09, 2014had some exercises but unfortunately i am already doing them. was hoping for something new and different that would help.
