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.

    "life takes a u-turn"

    Dont miss this book if u ever felt back pain. It changed my life from a person who had become fearful of sitting for more than 10 min, going out of home for long and what not. It brought me back to my mountaineering, soccer days. Within a few weeks of listening to this book I was back on a trek at an altitude of 4400 mts and finished the trek in 2 days instead of avg 4 days. I started running after a period of year and a half. I bought back shoes for trekking, running and soccer all of which I had thrown away as doctors had said I would never be able to resume these activities. This book happens to be the biggest bliss to back pain sufferers. THere are no words to thank Dr Sarno for this approach to deal with back pain. Cheers Dr Sarno !!!

    "Believe the Unbelievable"

    I have been dealing with back bain for over 10 years. I read this book with deep skepticism, but in the end, this book has given me my life back.
    Thank you Dr. Sarno

    "Healing Back Pain"

    A very thought provoking book which made me ponder the nature of my back pain. I have to admit that since taking the advice of Dr. Sarno I have had considerably less back pain than before. It's not a hard process, rather a change of attitude.
    I'm glad I read this book.

    "loved this audio"
    Where does Healing Back Pain rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I would say this is one of my top ten


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Healing Back Pain?

    The education


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I did, but I listened in two sittings


    Any additional comments?

    Thank you for writing, it explains so much

    "Bunk!"

    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.

    "can't believe it worked..."

    I have to say I'm not much into mind over matter but having had a "bad back" for the last twenty years I thought I'd give the book a try. All I can say is that it worked. It took a good six weeks for to completely eliminate my pain but it did. I'm not sure how it worked but it did.

    As a result of the book I've been back pain free for more than a year. Well worth the read.

    "A good listen"
    Would you listen to Healing Back Pain again? Why?

    The information is helpful with understanding the behavior of the unconscious mind and how it can cause pain.

    "MIRACULOUS!!!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Healing Back Pain to be better than the print version?

    I don't have the printed version but I will get it, too.


    What other book might you compare Healing Back Pain to and why?

    None can compare except for Dr. Sarno's two other books.


    Any additional comments?

    I have listened to all of Dr. Sarno's books here on audible. All I can say is he is a GENIUS! This guy deserves the Nobel Prize for Medicine!!!

    Have you ever heard of a book the heals you just by listening to it? He set me free and made me the master of my body again after suffering the whole of 2011 from bursitis, sciatica (herniated disc, or so they say) and morton's neuroma. I bought the Mindbody Prescription earlier, used to avoid going out because of the burning pain in my feet, but from day one I was able to walk several miles at the Pentagon then danced the night away in the evening!!! Talk about miracles!

    "Makes Perfect Sense"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Healing Back Pain to be better than the print version?

    The message in this book makes sense and I found the info very helpful. The only drawback is that there is very limited info regarding treatment.

    "Do not buy this book!"

    Very disappointing. You are listening for hours to find out why Sarno is supposed to be giving you a superior solution whilst he doesn't give you a clue on his ideas. Wish I had spend my money wiser.

    "Fantastic book"
    Would you listen to Healing Back Pain again? Why?

    I've listened to it lots of times. It was easy to listen to, with the author having a great reading voice and very well structured. Complicated process's were explained in a very detailed way and I could understand the concepts that were being presented properly.

    Most importantly the book has helped me to heal my back pain and tension heartaches. I would recommend this to anyone.

    "The only book you'll ever need to heal back pain"

    I was a little skeptical when I first started listening to this book, as I had suffered from back pain (fibromyalgia) for many years and tried countless treatments. As I listened to Dr. John Sarno's narration, I identified with everything he said. It was like he was describing me ??? my personality, my pain, and my pattern of symptoms and associated treatments. I threw all the treatments in the bin, said goodbye to my physiotherapist, and gradually got better within months.



    Listen to Dr. Sarno, listen to your inner self, and you WILL recover from back pain without anything else but this book and a lot of patience. Good luck.
