Back in Action is an excellent, informative companion to Sarah Key's widely acclaimed Back Sufferer's Bible, answering all the most commonly asked questions about back pain.

Do you have a back problem?

This book will help you put it right.

In an easy-to-read question and answer format, Back in Action sets out all the commonly asked questions about back problems and how to treat them.

Sarah Key explains that most back problems are caused by the stiffness of a spinal link or vertebra-a totally reversible condition. By starting off with physiotherapy to mobilise the stiff spinal links, and then practising techniques and exercises to keep each vertebra separated and supple, you can have a healthy back.

Illustrations throughout Back in Action make the explanations easy to understand, and a daily exercise plan shows you how to strengthen your back and alleviate pain.

Back in Action is an excellent, informative companion to Sarah Key's widely acclaimed Back Sufferers' Bible.

Understanding is half the cure.
