Publisher's Summary

Do you have back, neck, or shoulder pain that keeps recurring or won't go away? Do you have to "baby" your back? Does back pain keep you from living a full life? If so, you may be suffering from TMS - (Tension Myositis Syndrome) - and you don't have to take it anymore!

Dr. John E. Sarno, author of the revolutionary book Mind Over Back Pain, is a medical pioneer whose program has helped patients overcome their back conditions- without drugs or dangerous surgery. Now, using his latest research into TMS, Dr. Sarno goes one step further. After identifying stress and other psychological factors in back pain, he demonstrates how many of his patients have then gone on to heal themselves without exercise or other physical therapy.

Discover why self-motivated and successful people are prone to TMS, how anxiety and repressed anger trigger muscle spasms, how people "train themselves" to experience back pain, and how you may get relief from back pain within two to six weeks by recognizing TMS and its causes.

    "Interesting approach!"

    The scientist part of my brain rebels against the research methods. The psychoanalysis part of me knows that there is a lot of truth in here. Resolving those conflicts is not likely to end anytime soon. In the mean time, I'm betting on a lot less neck pain!

    Great, informative, and very helpful book. The narrator is a little dry at first but once I got used to it, it was good

    "Worked for me!"

    This book eased my back pain within one week. I had the pain for over 8 months. Tried acupuncture, chiropractor, physical therapy and massage to no avail.

    "No techniques are discussed"

    I've been having severe back pain for six months now and have been unable to work more than a couple hours at a time. I've been through all the usual therapies with no relief so I decided to give this book a try. The concept is intriguing so I gave it two stars but the book does not share any techniques to resolve the pain. I have just purchased his other book "The Mind Body Prescription" and I really hope it will describe the program there.
