Back Pain

The reading of books by Dr. John Sarno enabled me to overcome six years of crippling low back pain. So I would highly recommend all three books by Sarno. His main theses is that suppressed emotions like anger are at the root of most back pain. Fred Amir's book also provided some additional helpful information. For details on my recovery, see the eBooklet  Overcoming Back Pain.

Healing Back Pain: The Mind-Body Connection. By  John Sarno (1991). This was the first book by Sarno that I read. And it is the book that made Sarno famous as a back pain doctor. Many people have recovered from back pain just by reading this book.

Mind Over Back Pain . By  John Sarno (1982). This is Sarno's first book. It is small, but it does provide some helpful information.

Mindbody Prescription: Healing the Body, Healing the Pain. By  John Sarno. 1998. This is Sarno's most recent book. In it, Sarno not only applies his theories of pain to back pain but to other forms of pain and other health problems as well.

Rapid Recovery from Back and Neck Pain. Fred Amir (1999). Amir's book is based on Sarno's ideas. What Amir adds to Sarno's treatment methods is the use of visualization to help speed up recovery.
