What Types Of Books Are Out There?
I’ve chosen to identify with books that serve different purposes for reliever upper, middle, and especially lower back pain, and this is the way I’m doing it, because everyone has a different idea on how “one” should take care of their backs to find better relief. And so I have taken the three following categories:
- Mindfulness Based Approach
Its no surprise that back pain affects your physical body by nature, but did you know that it also has a lot to do with the inner workings of your mind? That’s right, many people with a chronic pain(and even an illness) can be the inner workings of the mind, which is NOT to say it is the same as the brain.
Emotional triggers like Stress, Depression, Anxiety, and many other emotional parts play a factor in the physical manifestations that you and I encounter. So for those of us that need the whole mind and body experience of relief(of which I am too), these type of books are the ones you will find the most beneficial.
As someone who is constantly searching for the right facts, scientific evidence, and a more personal touch, this method is based on the first hand view of a person who has actually been through the ringer already. In my years of reading back pain relief books, reading blogs, YouTube videos, nothing can quite touch you emotionally and spiritually like content that is talked about by someone who has been where you stand.
These have to be my favorite types of books because you get to learn from an expert, and at the same time, you get to hear and see their stories of overcoming the worst of the worst injuries and chronic pain and inflammation, to now living a pain free life.
3. Yoga/Pilates/Tai Chi/Stretching.
Similar to Mindfulness based approaches, yoga, Pilates, Tai Chi, and stretching all encompass a release of the stress decompression of your mind. But on the other side, many times, your back pain that is specifically correlated to your spine or non-specifically to your spine, all have to do with tightening of your muscles, joints, and ligaments.
These types of stretches can be very useful in loosing up your body, to gain more flexibility, and to strengthen your body.
My Top 3 Best Back Pain Relief Books
So let’s get to it. I;m going to break down a brief overview(a synopsis if you will) of each of the 3 books, and give you headway to what you can expect from continuously reading these books.
Along with that, I’m going to give you insight as to where you can purchase them, but remember, you don’t have to…Since I’m giving them all away for Free, which you can find at the very bottom.
1. Healing Back Pain: The Mind-Body Connection By MD John E. Sarno
If you’re suffering with physical pain and it’s affecting your mood, behavior, the way you think and feel, then this is the book you must consider reading. The reason I say this is that its a mindfulness based book that is very hard to put down, in a great way! Plus, you’re going to learn from a world re-nound MD(John E Sarno), how he talks about the difficulties of getting over chronic pain when the mind is not in it to win it.
What I like About The Book
There is just way too much to love about Healing Back Pain that It wouldn’t do me justice to name just one thing I loved about it. In fact, I’ve re-read many chapters of it after I finished it the first time. MD John E Sarno really gets to the bottom of which you are feeling more and more constant physical chronic pain and inflammation, and it doesn’t all have to do with your bodys mechanics and movements, but more so about an emotional response known as Tension Myositis Syndrome(TMS for short).
Its still crazy to me how many of us live both a subconscious and un-subconscious lifestyle, where we are aware of who we are and at times what we are-which we can easily pick up on, and then there are the traits that we don’t pay so much attention to that are actually far more helpful to us. Mr. Sarno talks about how “TYPE A” personalities are more likely to be out of sync with their emotions, and have more aggression to be successful in life.
What I don’t like about the book:
Honestly, there is nothing I didn’t like about the book, but If I had to choose something, it would be the fact that its not about body mechanics and the ability to understand how movements can affect and fix our postural balances.
#2 Back in Control: A Surgeon’s Roadmap Out of Chronic Pain, By David Hanscom
Back In Control is an incredible read that mixes both a first hand experience from a man with life threatening chronic back pain and a fulfilled long term healing lifestyle. If you have severe chronic pain, are thinking about getting a surgery, or are trying to recover from post surgery but don’t have the answers, this is the book you must pick up. You’ll clearly see how anyone with pain from childhood to adulthood, or for a smaller from of time, can truly find long lasting healing once and for all.
What I like about the book:
As a writer and person whose experienced first hand all about back pain, I was so happy and elated with the work behind David Hanscoms story. I finished it in less than a weeks time, to show you how much interest I had in the book. David understand yours pain, he knows what you’re going through, and how to get you out of a hole.
What I have come to appreciate is that it builds on Dr. John E Sarnos relaxation techniques and mentions how even people with Trauma or PTSD can overcome their chronic pain.
Chronic pain means receding to a life on the chair, in front of the TV, endless hours walking the same floor, and sitting in the same chair until dawn, and afternoon naps, its just a vicious cycle that doesn’t need to continue. What I learned was how the brain produces a similar chemical to morphine – endorphins, and another chemical similar to Valium.
But most people don’t know a thing about it, and this book teaches us how to use it. The book opens up with one great tool, a pencil…
Whenever you feel your anxiety, stress, and pain, Dr. Hanscom wants you to write it down on paper. Do it in the morning, afternoon, evening, and night, and to cut the paper into pieces and throw it away. What this will do is trigger an awareness response in your brain to cut out the wrong.
What I Don’t Like About The Book
There’s not much downfall in this book, other than it not being about the bodies mechanics and movements, I can’t say anything bad. I recommend it for anyone trying to get over any kind of chronic pain really(its universal), and for anyone thinking about pre and post surgery.
3. Yoga for Back Pain By Loren Fishman and Carol Ardman
For anyone with lower back pain, and episodes of sciatica, this book is a MUST read. If you’re in great doubt with your movements, mobility, strength, and flexibility, then you shouldn’t look anywhere else then inside this book. You can choose to spend endless hours and money with a PT, but what they don’t teach you is what to do once you are at home.
What I like about the Book:
Simply, I learned yoga poses and stretches that I couldn’t have taken the time to do elsewhere, and was able to make sure that my lower back pain diminished…QUICKLY. Not only do you get to try different stretches, but the MD tells you why you are feeling the pain you have and how to get rid of it. You can easily diagnose your own back problems by reading the easy to understand descriptions of back pain. And more so, you get a prescription of which yoga to do for any kind of back pain.
The greatest benefit is what you have to do after your pain is gone. Not many people talk about what to do once your done stretching, but Loren and Carol both do a Superb job at telling you how to maintain your back after, for proper healing.
What I Didn’t Like About The Book:
I’d have to say that the pictures are in black and white, so if color bothers you, that might be a thing. Other than that, I loved it. The color less pictures are nothing to worry about really. It’s the context that matters.
