I found even the first 10-12 exercises in this program were a great help in relieving pain and spasm in muscles of the lower back, and helping to wake to a more mobile back in the morning. If you have disc problems diagnosed by MRI and have had serious pain episodes from doing ‘stuff you used to do with no problem’, start slowly and don’t overdo it.

Part One – What to Know

Before you begin the first exercise, start here.  It will help you to develop the right mindset to be able to follow this very easy but challenging program.

 Introduction – A Word from the Author

 Lower Back Pain Issues

 The Proper Mindset

 Program Preparation

In Part 1, I explain why the cycle of back pain is so difficult to break, how to break it, stay focused & committed, and the ways to avoid the pitfalls that lead us to give up too easily.  I believe that this chapter is a vital prerequisite to following the back pain exercises.  It is not only about performing the exercises, but patiently committing to them as you progress.

Part Two – What to Do

There are many exercises here to master.  Why? Because solving back pain is NOT a quick fix. Many imbalances occur before it begins to really hurt.  Fortunately, there are exercises for each one.  I break them up into 4 key stages, from easy to challenging, targeting every area that affects your back.
