Almost everyone experiences back pain at some point in their lives. Many people suffer far more than they need to and are looking for help. This book offers that help, combining inspiring and comforting Chicken Soup for the Soul stories written just for this book and accessible leading-edge medical advice from noted physical medicine and rehabilitation expert Dr. Julie Silver of Harvard Medical School.

My Thoughts:

I am loving the new Chicken Soup for the Soul books that share inspirational stories, coupled with medical advice from Dr. Julie Silver, an assistant professor at Harvard Medical School and award winning author.  As a health educator, I am always picking up self-help and other medical books to keep up-to-date on illnesses, treatments, etc.  So, when I am sent books from Chicken Soup for the Soul publishers, I read them, even if they don't pertain to me.  For this book, I don't suffer from back pain, but know many people (young and old) who do.  

As I read through the book, I marked pages that offered great preventive exercises, as well as thoroughly described the types of medical screenings and tests you may undergo, in order to be properly diagnosed and treated. A few people I knew have been misdiagnosed, and then over time made their conditions worse.  So, knowing what to look for, and when to seek help is key for back pain sufferers.

Overall, this is a well-written book, and offers great inspirational stories, that back suffers and their caregivers will enjoy reading, and learn a lot from.  I have passed it along to those who are frequent back pain sufferer and they found this book very helpful.
