Review Critique: Decidedly well written so as to be fully accessible to the non-specialist general reader with an interest in the subject of successfully managing and even eliminating chronic lower back pain, “UPRISE: Back Pain Liberation By Tuning Your Body Guitar” is as informed and informative as it is practical and immediately applicable. “UPRISE” is very highly recommended for personal, family, and academic library Health/Medicine reference collections and supplemental studies reading lists.
Synopsis: What if everything you think you know about chronic back pain were wrong? Despite 40 years of breakthroughs in medical science, patients suffering from chronic lower back pain do not experience sustained improvement. When treatments fail, we must ask: what is fundamentally wrong, and what needs to change? “UPRISE” by Dr. Sean M. Wheeler shines a spotlight on debilitating chronic back pain and asks the big question — why aren’t patients getting better? The shocking answer is that your pain treatment is keeping you in pain. Drawing upon more than a decade of specialized training, patient treatment and medical experience, sports medicine and back pain expert Dr. Wheeler explores the relationship between pain, spinal instability, muscle weakness and mobility keeping sufferers locked in a cycle of recurring pain. “UPRISE” offers a new understanding of the body as the finely tuned instrument it is – as not only your body, but as your Body Guitar. “UPRISE” introduces Tune Me, the new medical “orchestration” for your Body Guitar, a disruptive innovation to achieve back pain liberation (to achieve your Uprise) so those you love may again hear the unique, beautiful music your life is intended to play.
