“Back Care Basics is an important book for those with back problems to integrate into their daily lives. Dr Schatz has done us all a tremendous service in bringing this time-honored system of healing to our attention.”

—William Connor, M.D. Author of The New American Diet

“I find yoga to be a powerful system for preventing the most common types of lower back pain. Indeed, many of the back exercises used by orthopedists and physical therapists are derived from yoga techniques.”

—Dean Ornish M.D. Author of Dr Dean Ornish’s Program for Reversing Heart Disease

“When a back injury prevented me from making the 1992 U.S. Olympic team, I was ready to retire. Dr Schatz not only relieved my immediate pain, but also gave me a daily exercise routine to correct the source of the problem and prevent further injury . . . just in time to start training for 1996!”

—Margaret Groos 1988 U.S. Olympic marathoner

“In Back Care Basics, Mary Pullig Schatz, M.D., helps to guide and educate those suffering with back pain. I hope that it will encourage other health care professionals to study alternative approaches to healing back pain.” —B.K.S. Iyengar Author of Light on Yoga
