This book provides current and relevant information about managing lower back pain. Dr. Guarino describes proven methods to help manage chronic pain. These can range from conservative treatments, such as exercise, to more extreme measures such as surgery.
“My desire to help people and manage one of the most common chronic pain issues gave me the inspiration to write this book,” says Dr. Guarino. “I want to educate people further on this ongoing concern.”
Although it addresses a specific topic, Dr. Guarino believes anyone can benefit from reading this book.
