Understand how the back works and why back problems can often be traced to injuries in other parts of the body

Ease pain and keep your back strong with a simple 20-minute routine that meets your lifestyle

Identify the source of current hurt and follow a short-term program to relieve pain and restore flexibility

Understand the latest diagnostic tools with an overview of cutting-edge treatment options

Reverse or completely cure back problems stemming from more than 50 conditions, activities, and sports-related injuries

Relieve back-related troubles caused by anything from extra pounds to osteoporosis, work, tension, or the way you sleep

"I was certain that nothing was ever going to cure the pain in my neck and give me range of motion. Meeting with Phil Wharton was an absolute godsend. I have the utmost respect for the Whartons."--Barry K. Schwartz, founder of Calvin Klein, Inc., and current chairman of the New York Racing Association

"[The Whartons'] stretching and strenghtening programs that take 15 to 20 minutes a day cured my 5-year problems. I finally made the 2000 Olympics, injury-free, and broke 3 Irish records en route. This could not have been possible without the Wharton Performance team."--Mark Carroll, Irish national record holder in track and field

"Jim and Phil Wharton are engagd in an important public initiative to keep America on the go with freedom from common back ailments. This book can change the health of a nation."--Stephen Holt, M.D., author of The Antiporosis Plan and the best-selling The Soy Revolution

"While performing in films and training for marathons, I suffered disk herniations. I was a mess--pain, atrophy, weakness, numbness. Once Wharton Performance got their hands on me, I was right back on my feet. I was blown away by the knowledge, passion, and commitment that Jim and Phil have for what they do."--William Baldwin, actor

"With the Whartons' program, there's no limit to what you want to do. You can improve as much as you want in the areas you'd like, and you can tailor the program specifically to your needs."--Chris Martin, former coach of the Great Britain national swim team and the U.S. Olympic and national swim teams, including an Olympic-gold-medal-winning swimmer

Jim and Phil Wharton are the authors of The Whartons' Stretch Book and The Whartons' Strength Book. Their training methods have been featured on Dateline NBC and the Discovery Channel and have appeared in many publications including Runner's World, Shape, Health, USA Today, and the Wall Street Journal. Based at the Wharton Performance Center in New York City, they coach and train all over the world.
