Helpful exercises but one must actually do them regularly. Which is so unfair. Clearly written and easy to understand and follow. ( )

This book is well-balanced in practical and theoretical advice regarding how to manage chronic muscle pain, tension, repetitive stress injuries, tendonitis, etc. The basic principle rests on what Williamson calls "kinesthetic awareness," a quality most of us lack. Learning to develop our kinesthesia is the key to pain-free living. Williamson includes "explorations" in each chapter in order to develop this awareness. Part II of the book includes exercises tailored toward problem areas and based on the prior explorations.

Williamson presents the information in a logical and engaging way, encouraging the reader to the exercises daily. I have seen great improvement in my own lower back pain and would recommend this book to anyone who struggles with muscular pain. ( )

Haiku summary

No descriptions found.

Chronic pain such as tendonitis, most types of lower back pain, and neck and shoulder tension, can be caused by a number of different factors: old injuries; habitual movement patterns; problems with body alignment; psychological causes; and lack of kinesthetic awareness. Muscular Retraining for Pain-Free Living clearly and concisely explains the causes of persistent muscle pain and offers a therapeutic exercise program to address these problems and end pain.In his clinical practice, Williamson has found that a lack of kinesthetic awareness, or the ability to sense your own body movements accurately, is the most important - and most overlooked - cause of persistent pain. In this book Williamson offers easy-to-f- ollow exercises to increase body awareness, retrain muscle groups, and eliminate pain once and for all.Chronic pain management.… (more)
