Book Review for a new YOU! (or something catchy like that)

Just for fun: my first read of 2012...

Heal Your Aching Back (Harvard Medical School Guides)Heal Your Aching Back by Jeffrey N. Katz

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Nice overview of spinal anatomy & biomechanics in very readable language. Succinct descriptions of possible back ailments, w/ clear charts. Helpful info re: medications commonly used for back pain - & why they're used. Good info. for someone contemplating surgery, but not heavy on specific exercises for prevention.

Good review Susannah and Happy New Year.

The older I get the more aches and back pain I experience from little things. Blah.

From an earlier topic:

Dick Morris on Hannity Aug 15: The first primary, the one against Bachmann would be held in Iowa. Where Bachmann is probably going to win

Dick Morris on the "O'Reilly Factor" Jun 15: She, in my judgment is likely to be one of the two semi-finalists, Romney and Bachmann.

I've got more, but when I read the post on one of my left blogs, I thought of this one. :-)

Anyway, Happy New Year!
