The Ultimate Program and Workbook to a Stronger and Straighter Spine. 4th Edition – Fully revised with 2 new chapters and treatment based on the latest research. With all the chatter surrounding the sometimes-debilitating condition known as scoliosis, it can be easy to get lost in the thousands of suggested treatment options and plans. People are in pain. They’re uncomfortable. Relief can be fleeting – and seemingly impossible. Your Plan for Natural Scoliosis Prevention and Treatment : is Dr. Kevin Lau’s undisputed truth about scoliosis. He delivers facts and solutions with unquestionable accuracy, all while completely demystifying preconceived notions that proper spinal alignment due to scoliosis is unattainable. Dr. Lau has done years of research and investigation into what some would consider to be one of the most difficult and mysterious ailments of the spine. He treats the cause and condition while being careful not to neglect the symptoms. His three-step program succeeds where others have failed. In attempting to uncover little known methods of treating scoliosis, Dr. Lau took a different route. In his search to understand not only the “whats” of the condition but also the “whys”, Dr. Lau targeted two groups that mastered good health: the Australian Aborigines, and native African tribes. He used their historical successes to aid in creating a clinically proven program based on deductions from what the human body not only needs to survive, but how it was originally created to function. So why is this book necessary? Dr. Lau’s book deliberately departs from ineffective bracing and surgery which is commonly used. Dr. Lau combines ancient wisdom with modern research and technology resulting in a program that finally focuses on treating the causes of scoliosis! Instead, he combines ancient wisdom and modern research and technology with undeniably positive results! Further, as a practicing chiropractor and nutritionist, Dr. Lau uses his diverse knowledge of alternative treatments to formulate unique, individualized plans for great spinal health. Who benefits from the Health In Your Hands Program?: This book is easy to understand regardless of a reader’s level of medical expertise. It has been a go-to resource for personal trainers, chiropractors, occupational therapists, and medical doctors alike. At the same time, it has been beneficial for lay individuals who suffer the effects of scoliosis every day. If you have any interest in scoliosis and conditions of the spine, this book is for YOU! In the latest 4th edition you will: - Uncovers the most recent research regarding the true causes of scoliosis, while identifying which of the latest treatments are most effective and ineffective. The reader will discover several avenues for healing, one of which will deal with how bracing and surgery merely treat the symptoms, not the root cause of scoliosis. - Describes the most common symptoms of sufferers and explains in depth how the muscles and ligaments work in various types of scoliosis. - Understands how a quick assessment of the spine in teenage years can improve quality of life in later years, by placing emphasis not only on the medical evaluation, but also on how lack of proper nutrition directly correlates with illness in our bodies and the sometimes abnormal growth of the spine. - Presents the most effective exercises for scoliosis, advises against what should be avoided at all costs and offers routines that are not only unique, but fit within busy schedules. - Provides tips and tricks to modify posture and body mechanics to decrease back pain, as well as giving the most ergonomic sitting, standing and sleeping postures for scoliosis. - Helps readers learn and draw inspiration from others’ stories and relevant case studies.
