Spinal stenosis usually brings to mind images of bone spurs, pinched nerves, a wornout spine and pain. However few people know that scientific studies have shown up to 69% of people over the age of 55 to have spinal stenosis on an MRI exam, but no pain. Clearly radiographic pictures of one's spine do not tell the whole tale, as there are many people that are able to live pain-free with spinal stenosis. But if having a horrible looking spine on an MRI doesn't necessarily mean you'll have pain, then what does? Well, consider the study that checked out the back muscles of spinal stenosis patients with an EMG - and found that 17 out of 22 of them had abnormalities! Apparently there are other factors involved that might determine if one will have pain or not. Treat Your Own Spinal Stenosis will answer these kinds of questions and more. It will teach you what spinal stenosis is and how it got there. Then, you will learn what you can do about it by putting your spine through a series of "Tune-Ups." Based en rely on randomized controlled trials, Treat Your Own Spinal Stenosis is a simple, yet effective program that can be done in the privacy of your home with minimal cost or equipment. Exercise sheets are included to help guide you step-by-step through a sixweek program.

There is also advice on back pain management, the role of medication, the use of bed rest and how to return to work. This book is essential reading both for the patient confined to bed with acute back pain, and for someone with less severe back problems, but still having to cope with back pain or discomfort on an everyday basis.

In his groundbreaking new book, MenAlive: Stop Killer Stress With Simple Energy Healing Tools, Jed Diamond, PhD, teaches men and women four simple, yet effective, practices that can be used to prevent stress-related problems all of us face in this fast-paced, often chaotic world. “80 percent of all illnesses are stress induced,” says Woodson Merrell, M.D., Chairman of the Department of Integrative Medicine at Beth Israel Medical Center. Although stress impacts everyone, men are particularly vulnerable. According to social scientist Dr. Thomas Joiner, “Males experience higher mortality rates than females at all stages of life from conception to old age.” In Part I of the book, Diamond describes the hazards and blessings of being male, why perpetual stress is deadly, the science behind energy healing, and “the ultimate power tool” for guys who want their lives to work. In Part II, he details the four energy healing tools Diamond believes to be the most effective and scientifically sound: Earthing, Heart-Coherence, Attachment Love, and Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT). In Part III, he applies the tools to the most pressing problems men face today including: Irritable Male Syndrome (IMS), male-type depression, chronic pain, sexual dysfunction and loss of desire, Andropause (male menopause) and age-related issues, and the stresses related to our economic and ecological transition. Both men and women will be interested in getting answers to the following questions: 1. Is Irritable Male Syndrome (IMS) undermining your health and relationship? 2. How can you treat depression without talk therapy or drugs? 3. Which simple Energy Healing Tool can you use to relieve shoulder, neck, and back pain? 4. What are the best tools for reducing inflammation and improving sleep? 5. How can you keep Andropause (male menopause) from ruining your sex life? 6. Could you and your partner be going through “double menopause?” 7. Why do men frighten women and why do women shame men? 8. Which tools should you use to best insure that a relationship lasts a lifetime? 9. What are the most important things you can do when the economy hits the fan? 10. How can you prepare for the global changes in 2012 and beyond?

The book also provides references to key articles and links to internet-based educational materials. Practical tips, how-to and where-to guides, key points, tables, and charts also help to maintain current knowledge and competency in the many areas that comprise the field of PM&R.
