User-friendly, eminently practical little colour illustrated book for all those wishing to avoid back pain.
Eight out of ten people suffer back pain – if not now then at some stage in their lives. Our modern lifestyle means our backs are weak – and back problems are virtually inevitable – but there are ways to avoid the misery!
Many back injuries occur through ‘non-stressful’ movement – such as bending down to tie up a shoe. A Little Book About Your Back explains why, when and how we damage our backs through real life activities. With original illustrations throughout, which cover right and wrong postures for everything from ironing to eating a TV dinner the book shows how we often move incorrectly – and how we should move instead.
The illustrations are not at all abstract and are always of real activities rather than ‘exercises’. Includes:
Standing at parties • Putting on a pair of tights • Driving the car • Hoovering • Getting washing out of the machine • Making the bed • Carrying out the rubbish • Carrying the shopping
