From the Author Antony Bush
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.

Scans Rarely Show the Cause of Back Pain
‘...they don’t predict how much pain you feel or how disabled you are. Scans can also change, and most disc prolapses shrink over time.’
Pain With Exercise & Movement Doesn’t Mean You Are Doing Harm.
‘The pain you feel during movement and activities reflects how sensitive your structures are - not how damaged you are.’
Injections, Surgery & Strong Drugs Usually Aren’t a Cure.
‘They come with risks and can have unhelpful side effects. Finding low-risk ways to put you in control of your pain is the key.’
Thankfully, brilliantly, inexpensively, for the majority of us, back pain is completely within our power to manage ourselves
Movement is a behaviour, and back pain is related to how we behave. So if we can change how we think and how we behave, we can change our back pain
