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.

Some amazing information in this book. Great facts that were brought to my attention and that I am thankful to be knowledgable about now. Highly recommend for people with or without back pain!
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!
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.
