can you guys reccomend some good books for lower back pain/spine health. thanks


  • Hi Oganix. Welcome to Spine-Health. Nice to have you, though I'm sorry you're having problems - but that's why you're here, right?

    My spine bible is "Do You Really Need Back Surgery? A Surgeon's Guide to NECK AND BACK PAIN and How to Choose Your Treatment." Author is Aaron G. Filler, MD, PhD, FRCS (SN). I got it from Amazon.

    I'm sure others will have suggestions, but this one is the one I always use as my reference and to decipher "doctor-speak."

  • That is the book I always recommend as well. It covers just about every topic including anatomy, testing, surgeries, even insurance and disability...and the author is brilliant. He invented a new type of imaging to study nerve disorders that he calls MR neurography. And, he still sees patients at his office in southern California.

    Another good, general guide is "Heal Your Aching Back: What a Harvard Doctor Wants You to Know About Finding Relief and Keeping Your Back Strong" by Jeffrey Katz, MD.
