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.

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.
I am a massage therapist as well as an occasional back pain suffer. i've read commended this book to clients for years and have seen miraculous results.this book is written from the point of view of an orthopedic surgeon and provides a tremendous insight into the pain cycle that keeps so many of us trapped.stop browsing, buy this book, listen to it, then listen to it again, then watch your life change. It's audible, so the returns are as easy as a phone call to their excellent customer service department; if you don't like it, you get either your money or your subscriber's credit back.
The many positive reviews, combined with a "20-20" TV-journalism piece praising the doc., compelled me to try this in spite of my skepticism and my friends' bemusement, but my moderate lumbar stenosis has not dissipated in light of the doctor's claims that back pain is caused by the repression of rage. Maybe this is true for some people with milder symptoms, but it didn't work for me.
I have listened to it and Dr Sarno's other 2 books all day long for 5 weeks ago. It has healed my back pain and more. It also healed my husband's back pain and several friends of mine who got the book after I told them about it.
Loved it all equally.
I listened to all 3, but I think his last one The Divided Mind was my favorite.
Life Is Full of Pain
Please thank Dr. Sarno for saving my life!

I was in pain all the time, and now barely ever think about it, my whole life has change… If you are reading these reviews it means you have back pain, if so then stop here and buy the book! Cause worst case you lose $13, best case it will change everything about your life!
