For a terrific overview of the back pain industry and the scams that many places try to pull, I recommend the new book "Crooked: Outwitting the Back Pain Industry and Getting on the Road to Recovery"[0]. The author gave a great interview on this podcast episode[1]. She goes into the Sarno principles, among other topics. Strength training for the back is often a great help, but rarely prescribed by doctors. Most people have never heard of the multifidus muscles, much less seen the specialized machines for strengthening these muscles so critical to spinal stability[2].
