With your Kindle copy, you can learn the essential ways to move, stretch and strengthen the most neglected areas yet major causes of pain: your lower back, hips and legs. Follow non-surgical, non-medicinal, and safe methods for all ages and lifestyles. A must for those currently struggling with pain, who want to prevent it from returning and would like to reduce their dependency on medication and surgery.

Included in this series of low-risk stretches and movements are over 170 detailed illustrations, 3 treatment and conditioning levels, 1 maintenance level and 4 progress charts.
Restore proper mobility and function to your lower back, hips, legs and pelvis, allowing time to heal and recover. The first 13 'Limited Mobility Exercises' help to improve your flexibility and address your stiffness and tightness that contribute to, and worsen lower back pain. 19 'Progressive Exercises' then stimulate, develop, and strengthen the muscles and joints necessary for protecting the lower back from injury. 13 'Challenging Exercises' are then taught to retrain you how to move safely and proactively to prevent pain. The final 11 'Maintenance Exercises’ that you master are used seamlessly with your daily routine as needed, to remain protected.
This eBook is founded on the methods of exercise therapy, physiotherapy, lower back pain and injury rehabilitation. Learn in your home, at your pace and comfort level.

If you suffer from acute or chronic lower back pain and are not sure how to resolve it, this eBook can help you. Many issues related to back pain are the result of muscular and joint imbalances that you can self-correct through these targeted movements and exercises.

I have tight hips and hamstrings. I thought that I knew how to stretch properly, I was wrong. The book is full of exercises from basic to advanced, which have helped me get a better pelvic rotation, and help recondition my body to prevent low back pain due to tight and under-used muscles. I think of it as yoga for inflexible people. The best book I've seen on the subject, I've only been using it a few weeks, but absolutely love it. Would highly recommend to anyone with tight hips and hamstrings, who may be experiencing low back pain due to muscle imbalance.

Just starting (one month) on his program and I am finding it a lifesaver. Also Sherwin Nicholson responds to e-mails and has answered several questions that I had. The exercises and stretches have already strengthened the muscles and lessened the tightness in my back. My pain has pretty much gone away. I am learning new ways to exercise and have discontinued some old ways. I am looking forward to continuing into the book as I am really just getting started. For the first time in years I have hope for dealing with the problems I have faced with my lower back.
Through this book I am leaning things I always suspected but didn't know how to do -which is how to strengthen and loosen your back-- in essence your "core"-and thereby exercise your way to better back health and health in general
This book is great for me. I don't want to hear a million stories blah blah just want to have good pictures large enough to see and read, and get t
Right to it. This was perfect for me and it is working after only two times there was a huge difference.
