Author Essay

Dear Reader,

Have you ever found yourself at the end of a long day, twisting and turning to try to make the ache in your back go away? Have you ever decided to stay home instead of going to a social engagement, worried about what all that time on your feet will do to your back? Have you ever popped Advil three or more times in one day to soothe the strain on your spine?

For many Americans, the answer to these questions is a resounding “yes.” Ninety percent of Americans will complain of back pain at some point in our lives, and ten percent of us will develop chronic back pain, lasting years and perhaps even decades. Ending Back Pain answers the call of millions who need help in alleviating their pain and presents a simple, step-by-step strategy that has been sorely missing from the conventional back pain wisdom. As someone who has suffered from crippling back pain himself, Dr. Stern’s perspective as both a patient and neurosurgeon gives him unique insight into this disorder. Dr. Stern is the co-founder of Spine Options, New York’s first and only facility committed to non-surgical care of back and neck pain. Stern is on the clinical faculty at Weill Cornell Medical College, and is a board-certified surgeon specializing in spine neurosurgery, but is committed to helping patients find nonsurgical relief.

Engagingly written with entertaining and enlightening case studies, Ending Back Pain combines the best of conventional and alternative medicine with a blend of science and compassion.
