12-Minute Emergency Back Care
Far from being less effective than manipulation, massage, stretching, traction or inversion, this exercise is more effective. With other methods, back tension and pain return fairly quickly (and sometimes, suddenly) and you remain in delicate condition. With this exercise, back tension and pain progressively diminish, leaving you more and more fit for any activity.
While this exercise may take a few repetitions to get feelable results, done as instructed, the results are cumulative, longer-lasting, and with practice, a convincing demonstration of the effectiveness of somatic exercises for lasting relief from back trouble.
However, it's not for impatient people looking for a quick fix and who are satisfied with temporary results -- nor for people looking for a way to stretch their back out. It's for patient people looking for superior results and who have realized that they are going to have to go "outside the box" to get it.
