The website and book work well together to bring more awareness in how the movements we make affect our back. They have great diagrams and graphics that point out the different areas that are affected with certain movements. I will continue to do the exercises to see if it helps with my lower back pain.

Therapy gets really expenses with having a copay with every session. Also, they only give me only a few exercises at a time. I want to be able to move along accordingly and have all the exercises at hand. In my family, lower back pain is common. I am starting to get that same pain, so I want to prevent it as soon as possible.
Having the Low Back Pain Program, by Sherwin Nicholson, has helped me within just a couple weeks. It lays it all out for you from mindset, to preparation to a variety exercises to do ranging from limited mobility to challenging exercises. There are diagrams of muscles and exercise that demonstrate what each exercise should be focusing on and how to do them properly. Finally, there are charts to document the level of difficulty for each exercise and to track your progression.
Overall, this has proven to be an excellent source to manage my lower back pain and I am looking forward to seeing what it can really do in the coming months. I received this book at a promotional discount in exchange for my honest and unbiased review.

Part Three - What to Use
What I like about this book is the variety of exercises that are offered. They are easily explained and they are explained for how to do them and how they will help. I love that these are put in step by step instructions and even include photos so you can see the correct posture and how it all should look. For me, I tried a couple of the exercises and found they were rather easy to do, but also quite effective. Also, no special exercise equipment was needed either. Be sure to not do too much at once or over do it. The point of these are to help you feel better, not over exert yourself. Needless to say I am quite happy with this book and would certainly recommend it!

In my family scoliosis is prominent and in the women it hits in the lower back. I also have a cousin who is 46 and cannot lift over 10lbs because of her back. I think many of us fail to remember how important our back is. I cannot imagine not being able to lift my grandchild or bring my groceries in. This book is really put together nicely and provides a program that we could all benefit from. These exercises will not only benefit your back, but they will benefit your legs, abs and core as well, as they are all important to back health. I love the fact that it includes charts to help keep track of your progress and that it is laid out in steps. It also includes maintenance and support. I feel we all can benefit from this book.

As a sufferer of low back pain, I was happy to find this book. Not only has it helped to explain why I have pain, but it has also given me exercises to help relieve the pain without drugs. The book helps you get in the proper mind-set to get the most out of the program, it dedicates a whole chapter to your mmindset and another chapter to program preparation. It has many different back strengthening exercises for people with full or limited mobility. Most of the book is focused on exercises. I took my copy to my doctor and he said the majority of the exercises were fine for me, and I suggest you do the same prior to beginning any new exercise regimen. Again, I love the book and the exercises, they really have helped me lower my pain level.

Due to a pass medical procedure I occasionally experience severe lower back pain. Sometimes it can get to the point where I can't get comfortable enough to sit or even lay down. Having back pain, can't take you away from doing the things you love to do. When you're in pain the last thing you want to do is go hiking, or play street hockey with your kids.
Thanks to Sherwin Nicholson's Book "Low Back Pain Program" I now know how to safely and effectively self- treat lower back pain. Divided in 3 parts Sherwin teaches the reader how they too can treat their own lower back pain. The first part is all about what you need to know. How to have the proper mind set and preparation. Part 2 explains what you need to do. With numerous exercises including :
Limited Mobility Exercises
The final part is all about what you will need to use in order to do these exercises. Each exercise is explained how to complete it in an easy step-by-step method, as well as a picture of correct posture so you can see how it should look. I love how Sherwin has also added "Tips" at the end of the page to help you get the best results as possible. Within a few days of doing these exercises daily, I could already feel the difference. My back doesn't ache nearly as much as it did before I applied Sherwin's techniques.
With over 45 exercises, and over 170 detailed illustrations, you are sure to find something useful to help relieve any lower back pain you may be experiencing. I would recommend this book to anyone who is looking for a way to relieve their back pain at home.
