Summary
"Starting today, you don't have to live in pain. That is the revolutionary message of this breakthrough system for eliminating chronic pain without drugs, surgery, or expensive physical therapy. Developed by Pete Egoscue, a nationally renowned physiologist and sports injury consultant to some of today's top athletes, the Egoscue Method has an astounding 95 percent success rate. The key is a series of gentle exercises and carefully constructed stretches called E-cises. Inside you'll find detailed photographs and step-by-step instructions for dozens of e-cizes specifically designed to provide quick and lasting relief of: lower back pain, hip problems, sciatica, and bad knees; carpal tunnel syndrome and even some forms of arthritis; migraines and other headaches, stiff neck, fatigue, sinus problems, vertigo, and TMJ; shin splints, varicose veins, sprained or weak ankles, and many foot ailments; bursitis, tendinitis, and rotator cuff problems; and special preventive programs for maintaining health through the entire body."--Publisher's description
