Booklist Review

In the latest installment of the Younger Next Year books, series coauthor Crowley and chiropractor James empower people with often-agonizing back pain. They tackle proper diagnosis, exercises, and surgery, noting that doctors overprescribe spinal fusion, which costs about $100,000. They take turns writing alternate chapters, and both are funny. When he laments how people today neglect their glutes, James says, The use of the buttocks exclusively as a seat-cushion is a recent development in evolutionary terms, and a rotten one. They also clearly explain medical terms. The spinal cord, for example, is an information highway that sends and receives messages. A sprain is a stretch or tear of a ligament, whereas a strain is a stretch or tear in a tendon or muscle. They're almost like personal trainers: they expect patients to do some work and include clear instructions for such exercises as crunches. So instructive and descriptive are Crowley and James that everyone curious about the mechanics of the back and everyone with back pain will benefit from their easy-to-understand guide to preventing and treating that common ailment.--Karen Springen Copyright 2018 Booklist
