Review quotes from previous editions

This book is an excellent addition to the literature on back pain. Biomechanics is fundamental to understanding the physical basis of back pain, but many biomechanical textbooks are very technical and difficult for the non-specialist. What is new and different about this book is that it presents complex ideas very simply and clearly, and applies them to the clinical situation.

This volume is to be highly recommended to all doctors and therapists who deal with patients with back pain.

Professor Gordon Waddell DSc, MD, FRCS Orthopaedic Surgeon, Glasgow [Amazon]

This excellent book presents in one location a synthesis of much of the recent literature on the mechanical factors contributing to low back pain. The logic of the text is easy to follow and each chapter builds upon concepts and ideas presented in earlier chapters. I can think of few books to compare to it and I recommend it highly.

Dana J Lawrence, DC, MMedEd, MA(Palmer College of Chiropractic)

It is refreshing to see a book that interprets and integrates the literature instead of simply repeating studies.

W.S. Marras, Biodynamics Laboratory, Ohio State University

The book is one of the most evidence-based books on the market. The authors are research active and always updating their knowledge.

Principal Lecturer in Physiotherapy, University of Cumbria

"The third edition of The Biomechanics of Back Pain (previous editions 2002 and 2006) is a beautifully produced volume with extraordinarily clear text and superb, relevant colour illustrations of very high quality. All authors are recognized experts in biomechanics, anatomy, pain and spinal research.

The layout is very reader friendly. Each chapter may be read in isolation for reference; or for those with a more intense interest in all aspects of back pain the book can be read from cover to cover. It is primarily intended for practitioners who treat back pain-physiotherapists, osteopaths, chiropractors, general practitioners, nurses and occupational health (OH) professionals, including those involved in personal injury litigation.

There are 21 concise chapters. The first four set the scene by describing the anatomy of the vertebral column, muscles, fascia, nerves and blood supply. Other chapters in the first half of the book cover growth, aging and very detailed mechanical aspects of the back. Chapter five, on back pain itself, opens-‘In principle, any of the structures of the lumbar spine that receives an innervation could be a source of back pain.’ Further-‘it is quite easy to invent an explanation of how any of these structures could be affected by injury or disease in order to become painful. It is another matter, however, to prove that such explanations are realistic and obtain in a given patient.’

A comprehensive but clear list of no less than 14 disorders that can cause back pain follows. The chapter concludes-‘ Although many lesions have been implicated as the cause of low-back pain, few are supported by objective evidence.’ I was somewhat surprised by the comment, ‘The best available data implicate the sacroiliac joint, the zygapophyseal joints and the intervertebral discs as the leading sources of chronic low-back pain.’

The chapter on ‘Epidemiology of back trouble’ will certainly be of considerable interest to all OH professionals and this together with the preceding short chapter on pain nicely encapsulates the cardinal issues faced in OH. The chapters on posture, prevention, conservative management and surgical treatments are of considerable interest. The penultimate section of the book deals with medico-legal considerations and will be of help and support to OH professionals.

The book is really well indexed and readers will have no difficulty in finding sources of information on specific topics. And for those who wish to explore further there is a list of 1639 references! A website contains useful PowerPoint presentations including an overview of the Psychological Flags Framework.

The final remarks of the authors include-‘There is good evidence that the psychosocial characteristics of many patients with chronic back pain are not the underlying cause of the problem; rather they are a response to vague diagnosis,ineffective treatment and a “compensation culture”.’ As more than half the content of this book is of direct relevance to OH professionals, I have no hesitation in recommending that it has a place on our bookshelves."

John Challenor,  Oxford Journals Clippings, Occupational Medicine,  vol 64, no 7, October 2014

Reseña del editor:

Authored by experts of international renown, the new edition of The Biomechanics of Back Pain forms a bridge between the latest research and the effective clinical management of patients with back problems.

Now published for the first time in full colour, the volume presents a unique synthesis of the latest research findings and explains its recent changes in emphasis - from trying to understand and reverse age-related spinal degeneration to addressing the soft tissue causes of pain.

New chapters are devoted to Sensorimotor Control, and Cervical Spine Anatomy and Biomechanics, while a bonus website contains useful PowerPoint presentations, which include seminars entitled Back Pain and Forces on the Spine as well as an overview of the Psychosocial Flags Framework.

Clinically orientated and highly practical throughout, The Biomechanics of Back Pain has become the standard platform by which readers keep abreast of research and developments in the field and is essential for all clinicians involved in the care and treatment of patients with back pain, as well as for those studying its causes and methods of prevention.
