Hi everyone! This is Julia of The Broke and the Bookish, formerly blogging on my own at The Competitive Bibliomaniac.
I read mostly historical romance, but can often be found reviewing paranormal romance, young adult books (mostly distopian/fantasy), fantasy/sci-fi, classics, and the occasional non-fiction book about languages.
Feel free to follow and reblog!
Note: You dont want to try any new excercises and shit until you talk to a doctor. For me, I had been to physical therapy before and remembered a lot of these stretches. So read books on doctoring at your own risk. Gotta love a disclaimer. You really dont want to mess with your back.
Wow. I was skeptical when I first selected this book for review, but also desperate. See, I have 2 bad disks in my back and at the time I saw this book, I couldn't sit, stand, drive, sleep without discomfort.
The seven stretches laid out really relax the muscles and help when things are tense. I was skeptical when I first tried them, but they are all reminiscent of when I did physical therapy back in the day.
Now I use them whenever I can't get out of bed in the morning for stiffness or immediately after I work out and can feel my muscles tensing.
So we know this book is effective at least for me, now lets look at the layout. I really enjoyed how this book was laid out. It was easy to skip to a chapter that was relevant to me, for instance the airplane travel chapter, and read about the tips. There were sections for pretty much everything you can think of: airplanes, cars, working, showering. It was quite complete.
I am definitely going to get this one to have as a reference throughout my life because you never know when things may flare up again. I recommend this as a resource for people with back issues looking to try some organic treatment for their chronic pain.
