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.

    "From an M.D. with back pain"

    Dr. Sarno makes so much sense. My MRI did not show a physical cause of my pain. I had heard of this book but pre-judged it as probably nonsense. But I have begun noticing that mental stress sometimes initiates the pain, and so I bought the book. Just finished listening and am convinced that's the diagnosis.

    "Really great insight :-)"

    It explaines everything. Also something I have always been wandering about... Why can doctors only emagine 2 ways to work with a patient. 1. x-ray (to see what is broken) or 2. Prescribe drugs to reduce the symptoms.

    "Very interesting and thought provoking. "

    A must for anyone interested in holistic treatments of the human condition. A reminder that emotional and mental health should be addressed just as much, if not more, as physical health.

    "A very thought provoking book."

    I always suspected a connection between mind and body. This book provides a frame work to better understand how it works. I found many of the example I could relate to and it greatly enhanced my understanding of how it works and how the connection manifests in pain. While I have just finished listening to the book and not been able to put in practice his theory it has certainly motivated me to put aside my fears and motivated me to action.

    "Eye opening"

    What a concept.. so glad I found this. Applies to so many people I know.

    I've suffered from chronic muscle tension for years. I am a total Type A personality.

    It's good to think outside of the box. As a medical professional I'm quite familiar with cookie cutter diagnoses and the over use of surgery.

    "Changed my life!"

    A book that has literally and physically changed my life. I experienced episodes of back pain, neck pain, and foot pain for the last 20 yrs. painful episodes that would sometimes not allow me to leave the house and limited my life.
    All this changed after reading this book! I continue to check in daily and do the recommended mental exercises. I am free of back pain, neck pain, and foot pain. I have had a few episodes that have poked there ugly head out, I immediately get back on track with the mental work and it goes away within 24 hours. If you experience s s back pain at all this is a Must Read!

    "Life changing"

    I've had recurring back pain for years. When I stumbled across this book, I'd been in pain for 6 days after from suffering a supposed back sprain. Listened to this on Monday night, woke up pain free on Tuesday morning. If you're open minded and prepared to un-learn everything you thought you knew about back pain, this book will change your life in the best possible way.

    "Excellent Book on Pain Management"

    Great confirmation of what many of us instinctually know on a spiritual level. Especially when we are living with a loved one who is in constant pain that no medical treatment or surgical procedure can alleviate.
    Many thanks to John Sarno for sharing his knowledge, experience and insights about the root cause of pain that cannot be cured by current medical science.
