by Antony Bush

Why is back pain the world’s biggest disability?

Why aren’t the fixes we buy working?

What are the best exercises or activities for back pain?

Learn the 10 Back Facts we all should know about our backs.

The answer lies not within medication, repeat ‘treatments’ or surgery. It lies deeply rooted within our lifestyle and behaviour – in the way we behave as an animal.

Movement is medicine – it is the missing link – the active ingredient in treating our back pain – whether highly-trained elite athletes, sedentary office workers or manual labourers.

Learn how to tailor your lifestyle to achieve your back pain goals. Use movement and mindfulness as a way back to enjoying a healthier, happier, more fulfilled and self-empowered life.

This book is a comprehensive ‘how-to’ for all back pain sufferers. It is for those who are distressed and lost amongst the confusing plethora of ‘treatment’ options in the modern marketplace.

The aim is to clear a pathway through the tangled jungle of fast-fix claims and snake oil remedies. To help you manage your back pain as simply and quickly as possible. To answer the question: ‘Where is my back pain coming from and what can I do to fix it myself?’ To show you how to become the central protagonist in the story of your own recovery.

We’ve tried to lay out this book as simply as possible, with as many infographics as we can, so you can pick it up at any point, have a quick glance and learn something useful. We repeat and re-emphasize important points. But the central aim is this: to get you feeling and functioning well, to give you the knowledge and understanding, to enable and empower you to manage your back pain yourself.

The simple fact is you are your own best treatment.Without doubt, the best practitioner to fix your back pain is you.

Fact 4

Scans Rarely Show the Cause of Back Pain
