Preface

Almost eight persons out of ten suffer from acute backache least once in their lives. About sixty percent of backache at lest belong to the age group of 21-40 years. In other words, backache strikes persons when they are in the prime of lives. Lives. Gloomy statistics, indeed.

Backache is a major cause of absenteeism in industry. The resultant loss of production makes industrialists lose their sleep. If the industry is concerned about the waste of money, we as are just concermed about the waste of people. Sincere and hardworking they don’t want to cause any difficulty and yet, because of back problems, they are unable to perform their effectively.

Each day, thousands (perhaps lakhs) of persons remain absent from work and cannot fulfil social responsibilities because t backache. Thus back pain is a major social problem. What not be expressed in numbers, although it is of equal or cer importance, is the profound suffering and compromise the quality of life that backache victims experience.

We believe that a doctor must fully enlighten and educate Pe tient about his or her backache A doctor must not only t wtat is wrong but what the diagnosis means, what it can w.loo into and why certain treatment b prescribed. Lately, there are not many doctors who have the time w inclination for such discussion with their patieni reason for bringing out this book.

However, the more important reason for the publication of s ok is the realisation on our part that back-care should directed more at prevention of backache rather than Prevention is better than c e. And backache !f that is easy to prevent.

We have tried to remain clear and simple; but, we have divide important concepts and facts about back-care just they seem technical or complex. We believe that an to all relevant information on this subject will be to a’s benefit.

Finally, the information given in this book is based not only on our own experience but has also been drawn from that of some world-authorities in the field of back-care. That is to say, the reader is not just getting a ‘one man’s opinion; there is a lot of scientific evidence to back the information offered. Suggestions for the improvement of this book will not only be gratefully acknowledged and but will also be considered while bringing out its future editions.
