People are suffering in epidemic proportions from a wide range of work- and sports-related injuries: chronic knee problems, carpal tunnel syndrome, aching backs, sore shoulders, leg cramps, and a host of other aches and pains. According to anatomical functionalist Pete Egoscue, today's sedentary lifestyle causes a lack of proper motion that is to blame for most of these musculoskeletal problems. Here, Egoscue shares his exercise programme that activates the dormant muscles, and helps maintain the body's full range of physical functions. Readers can learn to identify the source and cause of any musculoskeletal pain they are experiencing and learn how to correct it through a pain-reduction programme and an ongoing exercise regime. The main part of the book contains 22 simple exercises that stretch, strengthen and relax the body, allowing it to return to its proper alignment and achieve better health. Some of the satisfied users of this programme include ex-Chicago Bears football coach Mike Ditka, singer Patti Page, author Ken Blanchard and pro golfers Jack Nicklaus and Seve Ballesteros.
