Eighty percent of Americans experience back pain at some point in their lives. It can be a complex problem that affects mood, self-image, and mobility -- but it need not rule one's life. In The Back Pain Bible, noted chiropractor Anthony Cichoke explains how sufferers can conquer this affliction and how they can defend themselves against the emotional, physical, and biochemical/nutritional stressors that play varying, sometimes overlapping, roles in the cause of every back pain.

He describes how alternative therapies -- stress relief, Eastern philosophy, magnets, and acupressure -- can be used to improve, reverse, and even cure such ailments and gives specifics on how to increase the body's innate healing potential.

The author also discusses:
-- The anatomy and physiology of the back and how lifestyle causes back problems
-- Curing back pain and preventing flare-ups using the five-step jump start plan -- diet, exercise, supplements, meditation, and detoxification
-- Short treatment plans for disc problems, fibromyalgia, scoliosis, and other key back conditions
