The most common complaint that plagues countless Americans is back pain. Although we hear a lot about herniated disks, relatively few people have herniations that cause them pain. Most people suffer pain brought on by poor posture and performing daily chores and/or working out with poor posture.

We cannot stress enough how important posture is to the health of your back. Eighty percent of the back patients that Deidre saw in private practice required instruction in proper posture. Most body alignment courses (Feldenkrais, Alexander Technique) are based on getting people to understand and improve upon faulty movement patterns caused by poor posture and mechanics.

For people who do have diagnosed herniations, we recommend that they get tips for exercises from their orthopedists or their physical therapists who are familiar with their conditions.

A herniated disk is a protrusion of the disk material out of the vertebral canal onto a nerve. When the nerve is compressed, sharp pain or burning may be felt in various parts of the legs, depending on the amount of diskal protrusion there is.

Though many back pain sufferers resist the work of Dr. John Sarno, if you are afflicted with a chronically stiff or sore back, you should check out his eye-opening (or should we say, back-healing) Healing Back Pain. This simple book makes a convincing argument about how anxiety and repressed anger trigger muscle spasms and other debilitating back problems. Interestingly enough, many of Sarno's biggest converts were long-suffering back patients who had explored every avenue in conventional medicine.
