Healing Back Pain: The Mind-Body Connection

Abridged Audiobook

Publisher: Macmillan Audio

Date: March 2003

Duration: 3 hours 24 minutes

Summary:

Do you have back, neck, or shoulder pain that keeps recurring or won't go away? Does back pain keep you from living a full life? If so, you may be suffering from TMS (Tension Myositis Syndrome)—and you don't have to take it anymore!Dr. John E. Sarno is a medical pioneer whose mind-body approach has helped patients overcome their back conditions—without drugs or dangerous surgery. After identifying stress and other psychological factors in back pain, he demonstrates how many of his patients have then gone on to heal themselves without exercise or other physical therapy. With case histories and the results of in-depth mind-body research, Dr. Sarno's Healing Back Pain describes how patients recognize the emotional roots of their TMS and sever the connections between mental and physical pain.

    I liked how the author presented his case studies and how detailed he went in explaining each patient condition. What I would have liked is solutions to the problems. He did not provide any solutions. He would say” pain is worse when you can’t get over resentment or depression or some other emotional problem.

    I am going to try my hardest to implement the teachings of this book. But 70 percent of this book is him talking about the people he has cured. 25 percent is him explaining what TMS is, and maybe 5 percent is actually devoted to fixing TMS.
