I have dealt with back pain for a long time, pain that radiates throughout my entire upper body, and will have me trying to catch my breath. The pain has at times, been so severe, that I reached out to a good friend of mine, Dr. Joshua Meckle, a Chiropractor in Broomfield, Colorado, to see if he had any answers for me. I wish I wasn't so far away, because I know that he could have helped me a great deal.
I searched everywhere for answers, and ways to ease the pain, and then this book kind of fell into my lap.
It is an instructional training guide, on effective and targeted exercises, for long term pain relief of low back pain. However, since starting the program, it has helped ease the pain of much more than just low back pain.
Sherwin Nicholson, breaks this guide down into sections. In the first section, he discusses that causes of low back pain, and then how to prepare yourself for this program. He then outlines the different exercise routines, the routines consist of several exercises, and are broken down as follows:
Limited Mobility Exercises
He then takes you step by step on how and why to do each of the exercises. As mentioned in the book description: "The Low Back Pain Program demonstrates effective, very low-risk exercises, stretches and movements to treat and prevent: lower back pain, backache, back spasms and more, long term with a careful, concise, 'at home' guide. This book contains 45 important exercises, over 170 detailed illustrations, 3 treatment and conditioning levels, 1 maintenance level and 4 progress charts"
I have to agree that this book did help me learn some techniques on how to adjust my body, to ease the pain and discomfort of my back pain. What impressed me more, was when my kids (3 and 7) joined in, and were able to do many of the exercises with ease. I have to mention, that these exercises must have done something right, because not long after doing a few of the stretches, my son, who has autism, had a sort of calmness over him...he and his sister both.
The only other time I have seen this type of calmness come over him, is after we have actually been to the Chiropractor! As for my own changes...I am able to sit for longer periods of time without pain in my back and shoulders. When my back does start to hurt, I can now do the proper stretches to ease the pain quickly. I can also release the tension in my body enough to get a restful sleep.
I will definitely continue to go to the Chiropractor,(If you are in Colorado, Dr. Josh is the guy to see!) but between visits (or if you can't go at all), this book will teach you how to help relieve the pain you are experiencing.
If you want to learn some of these techniques, you can grab a copy of the Low Back Pain Program on Amazon for $4.97 (Kindle)
