An absolute "must buy" for anyone with back pain!

After a visit to a chiropractor (who was highly recommended) and being told I would need a year of treatments with a total cost of $2700.00, I opted to order this book and after doing the exercises for 1 month, I have been pain free from my sciatica!

A wonderful primer about back pain care.

This was a great book to find. You can tell the authors are experts. They provide a good overview of what a person can do about that nagging back pain, without immediately resorting to going under the knife. It is very up-to-date and handy when navigating the miriad of treatment options out there.


My name is Peter Vincent Cannice and I live in the Phoenix, Arizona area. I am 37 years old and have been suffering from severe back pain for all too long now. I understand what others are going through-I am there with you or HAVE been there where you are now. Although I am looking at my 2nd surgery in the middle of March, without this book by Stephen Hochschuler, I think I would not be around to write to you today. I am having an artificial disc replacement surgery, by the Grace of God, which was just approved in November of 2004. Dr. Hochschuler, a great surgeon that I met with in person, as a result of my pain and reading his book, is a man of wisdom and a man who understands the severe and chronic nature of back pain. This great book clearly will give you a number of Non-Surgical alternatives that will be helpful to you. Whether it is your neck, back or even leg pain (or any sort of chronic pain-for that matter), you can rest assured that you will be purchasing a book that will offer you some peace of mind and some relief. You can email me at if you would like to talk or should you ever need support. I am in severe pain at this moment but I can see the end of the rainbow as a result of reading this book. The alternatives are great ones and I've tried all of them at this point. I have no alternative, at this point, other than surgery and I pray that I make it through this very intense surgery in March of 2005. If you read this book you will learn that you are NOT ALONE, that your pain is REAL and that there really IS hope for you. I PROMISE YOU THIS! Please don't give up. Hang on and know that things are going to get better. This book gave me techniques to get through the day and ultimately I hold it responsible for getting me to the point that I am at today. And now I am writing a book of my own-on Chronic Pain and Alternatives. It will be free. And you can have one as a gift for the peace that I received in reading this wonderful book. GOOD LUCK TO YOU. TAKE A GREAT AND DEEP BREATH AND REACH OUT IF YOU NEED HELP. HELP IS OUT THERE AND PEOPLE REALLY CARE AND UNDERSTAND. My heart goes out to you. Peter Cannice

The Best Book on the BACK that I have EVER read

I have had chronic back pain for 2 years-so bad that I have considered taking my own life. Reading this book gave me hope, brought me up to date and allowed me to continue with therapy. I am now looking forward to possibly getting an artificial disk operation so this 36 year old male can get back to taking care of his family and kids. My background is in Medicine and this book offers it all-from the lay person to the Medical Docotor. I highly suggest this book over MANY, MANY others. You can email me at with ANY questions you may have. My name is Peter Cannice, of Phoenix, Arizona, and I am a survivor because of this book.

Excellent Information

This book provides GREAT information on all forms of treatment. It reviews everything from traditional to preventative remedies, and also gives tips on keeping your back healthy to avoid future injuries. The exercise pictures were very helpful. Also great for determining if you need back surgery and what the next steps are, how to find a surgeon, etc. if you do. I read this book as soon as I received it and found all of the information to be a great help and future resource!
