Pain management specialist Dr. Anthony H. Guarino has created an accessible and up-to-date guide to the range of available treatments to relieve back pain.

With detailed information about medications, exercise, injections, surgery, psychological interventions, and alternative treatments, Get Your Lower Back Pain under Control—and Get on with Life is an invaluable resource for anyone who suffers from chronic back pain. As Dr. Guarino encourages his own patients, "Master your pain. Reclaim your life!"
