Publisher's Summary

Do you have back, neck, or shoulder pain that keeps recurring or won't go away? Do you have to "baby" your back? 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, author of the revolutionary book Mind Over Back Pain, is a medical pioneer whose program has helped patients overcome their back conditions- without drugs or dangerous surgery. Now, using his latest research into TMS, Dr. Sarno goes one step further. 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.

Discover why self-motivated and successful people are prone to TMS, how anxiety and repressed anger trigger muscle spasms, how people "train themselves" to experience back pain, and how you may get relief from back pain within two to six weeks by recognizing TMS and its causes.

    "Fantastic book"
    Would you listen to Healing Back Pain again? Why?

    I've listened to it lots of times. It was easy to listen to, with the author having a great reading voice and very well structured. Complicated process's were explained in a very detailed way and I could understand the concepts that were being presented properly.

    Most importantly the book has helped me to heal my back pain and tension heartaches. I would recommend this to anyone.

    "The only book you'll ever need to heal back pain"

    I was a little skeptical when I first started listening to this book, as I had suffered from back pain (fibromyalgia) for many years and tried countless treatments. As I listened to Dr. John Sarno's narration, I identified with everything he said. It was like he was describing me ??? my personality, my pain, and my pattern of symptoms and associated treatments. I threw all the treatments in the bin, said goodbye to my physiotherapist, and gradually got better within months.



    Listen to Dr. Sarno, listen to your inner self, and you WILL recover from back pain without anything else but this book and a lot of patience. Good luck.

    "READ THIS"

    This is a hugely important book that could change your life. dr Sarno is WAY ahead of his time. This works. I'm a v skeptical person and it took me a while to really believe it but it's working and my RSI is getting better. He does say here that there's no inflammation with TMS but this is an early book and later it is acknowledged that swelling is indeed a symptom of TMS.

    "Half way there!"

    It was interesting... However it was more about diagnosing you with this issue ... Then no real help with the actual issue.. When the book had finished I felt like 'okay well I probably do have this tms thing.. But now what?' .. Is there a follow on?

    "life takes a u-turn"

    Dont miss this book if u ever felt back pain. It changed my life from a person who had become fearful of sitting for more than 10 min, going out of home for long and what not. It brought me back to my mountaineering, soccer days. Within a few weeks of listening to this book I was back on a trek at an altitude of 4400 mts and finished the trek in 2 days instead of avg 4 days. I started running after a period of year and a half. I bought back shoes for trekking, running and soccer all of which I had thrown away as doctors had said I would never be able to resume these activities. This book happens to be the biggest bliss to back pain sufferers. THere are no words to thank Dr Sarno for this approach to deal with back pain. Cheers Dr Sarno !!!

    "A good listen"
    Would you listen to Healing Back Pain again? Why?

    The information is helpful with understanding the behavior of the unconscious mind and how it can cause pain.

    I did, but I listened in two sittings


    Any additional comments?

    "Healing Back Pain"

    A very thought provoking book which made me ponder the nature of my back pain. I have to admit that since taking the advice of Dr. Sarno I have had considerably less back pain than before. It's not a hard process, rather a change of attitude.
    I'm glad I read this book.

    "Do not buy this book!"

    Very disappointing. You are listening for hours to find out why Sarno is supposed to be giving you a superior solution whilst he doesn't give you a clue on his ideas. Wish I had spend my money wiser.

    "disappointing"

    Three hours of case studies "proving" his technique works, and about five minutes on the technique itself. Summed up: look for emotions you're hiding from yourself, and deal with them.

    "A very thought provoking book."

    I always suspected a connection between mind and body. This book provides a frame work to better understand how it works. I found many of the example I could relate to and it greatly enhanced my understanding of how it works and how the connection manifests in pain. While I have just finished listening to the book and not been able to put in practice his theory it has certainly motivated me to put aside my fears and motivated me to action.
