Get Your Lower Back Pain under Control—and Get on with Life

Pain management specialist Dr. Anthony H. Guarino has created an accessible and up-to-date guide to the range of available treatments to relieve back pain.

Informed by the wealth of information in this book, patients can successfully manage their pain beyond their doctor's office. Dr. Guarino describes proven therapies and coaches patients on how to achieve results. He also offers helpful advice for dealing with the psychological effects of chronic pain and for navigating complicated insurance and disability plans.

With detailed information about medications, exercise, injections, surgery, psychological interventions, and alternative treatments, Get Your Lower Back Pain under Control—and Get on with Life is an invaluable resource for anyone who suffers from chronic back pain. As Dr. Guarino encourages his own patients, "Master your pain. Reclaim your life!"

Anthony H. Guarino, M.D., is director of pain management services at Barnes-Jewish West County Hospital and is an assistant professor at Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis.

"This small book should be read by all patients with low back pain... I highly recommend this book to medical students, residents, pain fellows, and pain practitioners, as well as any healthcare workers interested in low back pain. It will help them understand their patients and answer frequently asked questions."
