Over 90 percent of the US population seeks help for back pain at one point or another during the course of their life. If you're a horseperson, back pain is of particular concern as it not only robs you of the joys of riding--it threatens your livelihood, as well. From grooming and tacking up, to performing a flawless reining pattern or jumping a clean round, to stacking hay bales or pushing a wheelbarrow, everything we do on and around horses demands a supple, strong, healthy back. Now, in his unique, easygoing style, Dr. Jim Warson--a neurosurgeon who also happens to be a lifelong horseman--provides all the practical information you need to understand the diagnosis and treatment of back pain--whether caused by equestrian pursuits, outside activities, illness, or heredity. More importantly, he shows readers how to prevent back problems before they have a chance to unseat you. This book includes: - "Normal" back biology and function - Congenital conditions, trauma, arthritis, and infection - Understanding symptoms and pinpointing problem areas - Tack's impact on the physics of riding - How your horse's conformation can affect your body - Traditional and alternative treatments and therapies - Techniques for saddling and mounting without stress - Recommendations for pregnant riders. In addition, Dr. Warson provides a section specifically geared toward improving rider flexibility and strength. You'll find step-by-step instructions and photo series for 10 stretches and 8 exercises for a healthy, stress-free back, allowing you to not only enjoy your riding but all your day-to-day activities, whatever they may be.
