You will not find detailed anatomical diagrams of the spine, nor will you find any sophisticated discussions of the neurophysiology of pain.
What you will find are practical solutions and 'real world' knowledge that will empower you to find your unique path leading back to doing the things you love. Back in Motion is all about understanding pain, reducing the fear that often comes with it, empowering you to take control.
This Book Wasn’t Written... It Was Assembled & Optimized.
Assembled from the best available scientific evidence on what back pain really is. Optimized by the collective experiences of world-class athletes like Mat Fraser (4x Fittest Man on Earth), Stefi Cohen (25 World Records in Powerlifting) and Hafthor Bjornsson (World's Strongest Man winner). Back in Motion is tailored for the kind of person who wants to feel powerful again. For those sidelined by pain, it lights the path off the bench back into the game, back to your previous level of function and beyond. In the process, you’ll discover an essential handbook for handling the hoops and hurdles of life.
