The Back Dr.

He basically says that (after ruling out any serious disorder) back pain should be treated by movement and that pain does not always equal harm and the best thing is to keep moving. I got the book from the library but will be buying a copy to loan to clients.
Here's a link to a Canadian site but you can probably find it on amazon.com

But note that he has several books and I believe "Consultation With..." is his latest.

A word of caution..His research may be a shock to your Pilates based beliefs

That was me who posted the NYT article.He has done extensive research on the spine and written several books.I just started reading his latest book,Ultimate Back Fitness.And as you may guess,he doesnt appear to be enamored with Pilates or Yoga,or better said the approach of training/reahabilitating done by many..
It look likes a great read....Ill keep you posted
Someone here posted a link to an article at the New York Times quoting Stuart McGill. He's a spine researcher at the U. of Waterloo. I didn't know he had a book out, thanks taowave.

hmmm, just had a gander at his website. He has a textbook as well. Looks very interesting and worthwhile. Going to save up some pennies I think.
