Edwards, CO (PRWEB) July 01, 2011
Renowned spine surgeon and chiropractor, Dr. Donald S. Corenman, M.D., D.C., is releasing his much anticipated book, Everything You Wanted to Know About the Back, scheduled to be on shelves in bookstores across America later this month. According to Dr. Corenman, “Lower back pain is the second most common reason to visit a doctor, right behind the common cold and the flu. This book takes the mystery out of the spine and brings the information down to a level that is easy to understand for sufferers of back pain.”
Americans spend a staggering fifty billion dollars a year on treating and coping with back pain. As a top cause for lost employee productivity, it is the most costly problem in the industrial world. Eighty percent of the population will have disabling back pain at least once during their lives. In his new book, Dr. Corenman provides understandable information and practical knowledge on the underlying causes of problems that occur within the spine.
While popular bookstores already offer books on lower back and leg pain, many are inaccurate and have a significant amount of misleading information. Many non-academic texts erroneously convince readers that there is no real way to fully understand the causes of back or leg pain. This concept is simply incorrect. Almost all pain and dysfunction that the spine generates can be diagnosed and treated.
In medical school, there is little time spent educating medical students on the causes and treatment of lower back disorders. Chiropractic and physical therapy schools actually place much more emphasis on this subject; unfortunately, the information presented can be sketchy and incomplete.
Dr. Corenman's unique depth of knowledge gained from practicing both traditional medicine and chiropractic provides a balanced perspective for explaining the basics about back and leg pain as well as diagnosis and treatment options.
Dr. Donald Corenman has been a chiropractor and spine surgeon for over thirty years. He has made it his mission to write a book that anyone can read and fully comprehend so that they can make better decisions about how to treat and cope with their back pain. Everything You Wanted to Know About the Back is designed to demystify the spine. It will empower the reader to ask the right questions of caregivers and to demand effective treatment.
