I’ve just republished my book How to Conquer Backache which was first published exactly 30 years ago and has been out of print for several years. It contains absolutely nothing about covid, fake pandemics, depleted uranium or lockdowns. But it is well illustrated and packed with vital information about the causes of backache – and the remedies.
How to Conquer Backache includes details of slipped discs, osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, osteoporosis and many other causes of back trouble.
There is a chapter on how to keep your back healthy and another on exercises for your back.
Another chapter explains what doctors can do (and what they sometimes do wrong) and there is advice on how to use drugs wisely.
The chapter on pain includes advice on how to measure your pain and there is information about TENS machines, heat, music, massage, vibrators and ice as pain relievers. There’s also an explanation of what pain is and what influences the pain you feel.
And of course there is a section dealing with alternative solutions such as acupuncture, hydrotherapy, chiropractic, homoeopathy and osteopathy. And there is a big section on healing.
There’s a section on the importance of relaxation (and advice on how to relax your body and your mind) and the book ends with 20 questions backache sufferers often ask – and the answers! There are case histories too.
How to Conquer Backache by Vernon Coleman is available from the bookshop on this website.
It’s an illustrated, large format paperback and as a special introductory offer it currently costs $5.99 in the US, £4.99 in the UK and similar prices elsewhere.
I hope you find it helpful.
