"Back pain affects more than 75 percent of Americans at some point in their lifetime. It is second only to the common cold as a reason for a visit to the doctor. It is second only to childbirth as a reason for hospitalization. But in an alarming number of cases the treatment received makes the problem worse. Now three renowned doctors have developed an integrated mind-body approach, giving you access to the most up-to-date scientific findings available on the treatment of back pain - and to their extensive clinical experience putting these findings into practice. Designed to help you avoid useless or dangerous therapies, this authoritative guide also explores the crucial role your thoughts and emotions play in the treatment of back pain."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
