The key to feeling better and preventing lower back problems
Correct Posture is a 60 page illustrated e-book I created to teach readers how to take better care of their backs. This book shows you dozens of specific exercises to restore flexibility and strength to the muscles around the spine, making it much easier to sit, stand and bend with good alignment.
Practicing these exercises will help balance your muscles, making body movements feel easy and more natural. As you improve your body alignment, you will reduce the strain on the muscles and joints of your spine.
If you want to relieve muscular fatigue, stress and tension in your back, build core strength safely, improve your first impressions, and prevent more serious back problems in the future, read Correct Posture for Your Back.
A good investment in your well-being|
This is a wonderful book. It has great information for people who already exercise as well as for those who are "exercise phobics". Rob has a way of simplifying complex concepts so that it's easy to understand the science behind the exercises, making this a very user friendly book.
The illustrations are very easy to follow. They show, from various angles, the right way to do the exercise as well as the wrong way. Additionally, there are illustrations that show you where you should feel the stretch. Very helpful and reinforcing.
If you believe as I do that exercise is vital to your well-being, then this book is priceless.

How did I come up with the exercise routines for this book?
Nearly 16 years ago, I met my first patient, a lady who was suffering from debilitating low back pain. As I heard the stories of many others like her, I felt a strong drive to find better solutions for this problem.
My quest to offer better care for people with back pain has taken me through professional and lay literature, dozens of seminars, and thousands of hours of clinical practice with people of all ages. As I studied and practiced, I kept seeing the same patterns of muscular tightness and weakness (muscle imbalances) in my patients. I also saw that my patients were feeling much better once these muscles were functioning normally.
Over the years, I identified and packaged the safest and most effective stretches, strengthening exercises, and posture exercises to help my patients get back to normal life again. With unique, detailed illustrations and easy to follow instructions, this book is the next best thing to learning the exercises from me first hand.
In 2004 I started putting my thoughts together for this book, and now I’m excited to be able share Correct Posture with a larger audience.
Take advantage of the time and effort I put in to practicing, teaching and organizing this method for my patients. I’ve clinically tested the exercises and reviewed the literature so that you don’t need to.
The connection between posture and lower back problems
Many people sit for hours in awkward, unbalanced body positions or have jobs that require repetitive movements. Given enough time, these activities can easily lead to stiffness and weakness in the lower back and hip muscles, especially for people who do not exercise regularly. Once these hip and lower back muscles are not functioning normally, back movements and daily activities will gradually become more difficult and uncomfortable, straining the joints of the spine.
Nearly 16 years of experience as a physical therapist have convinced me that good posture is the key to preventing the most common lower back conditions. This book shows you how to reverse the muscle imbalances that come from years of desk work, driving, TV and internet use.
Correct Posture is fully illustrated and written in everyday language. This practical guide teaches you how to strengthen, stretch, and reprogram key muscles that will distort your spine if they are not functioning properly.
