Product Description:

Dr Ali's Ultimate Back Book

Review:

With credentials that include extensive training in medicine and complementary treatments, over 10 years practising at the highly respected Hale Clinic, and a total 20 years dealing with back problems, Dr Ali's Ultimate Back Book is set to be useful at the very least. With its analysis of the structure of the body, and its emphasis on a holistic lifestyle in relation to preventing and treating back problems, this is insightful and essential reading for both professional practitioners and sufferers alike.

Part one looks at how the back works, with nine chapters covering muscles, posture and the spine. Part two's eight chapters on when things go wrong, analyse every type of backache from computer-related to lying down causing problems. Ali's basic argument is that treating pain ignores the cause. His premise is that there are different types of muscle fibre, and that muscles are at the root of the problem. "The anti-gravitational force created by posture-controlling muscles and general muscle tone is the most important factor for back health", asserts Ali. According to Ali developing and maintaining healthy muscles to support posture is crucial, though this is not to be confused with working out at the gym.

Along with an analysis of available treatments, Ali highlights the benefits of yoga in particular, and suggests treatment and care for each type of problem. Though it might be tempting to go for the quick fix and skip to the index, it's well worth reading this in its entirety. Not a difficult task as it's readable, concise, thought provoking, practical and inspiring. --Lorna V
