“My symptoms were an upper leg that felt like it was being sawed in two, repetitive strain injury (RSI) in my hands and arms which at its worse prevented me from dressing, toileting or eating without assistance, and back, neck and ankle pain. There was a year when I couldn't drive myself at all. Eventually I ended up in a wheelchair, pushed around by my husband.When I began reading Rapid Recovery from Back and Neck Pain, I could barely walk. However as I followed the strategies outlined in the book I recovered quickly. My body returned to it's former healthy and mobile self, and as a surprising added bonus my allergies to cats, pollen and the like, which I had had since early childhood, disappeared. It is three years since I rapidly recovered. I have spent these climbing, cycling, playing the piano, dancing, gardening and loving life. What a gift this has been, and a huge turnaround from being severely disabled.”

Avoided Two Back Surgeries

Allan J. Masison

Retired municipal accountant
Weymouth, Msssachusstes



“I had been suffering with severe back pain, severe pain from sciatica (pain in the buttocks and legs) and extreme weakness in both legs. I could only walk for a short distance and then with a cane. I had been diagnosed as having spinal stenosis and in need of a laminectomy, removal of most of the back of the vertebra, to release pressure on the nerves of the spinal column on L3 and L4. I also had a herniated disc that required surgery. Fortunately, while waiting for surgery, I read Rapid Recovery from Back and Neck Pain. This book gives one a detailed action program to follow. I recovered completely and cancelled the surgery. I still can't believe that I am now completely pain free and have all the strength back in my legs and that I can live a normal life again. I sincerely hope and pray that the word spreads about how it is possible to recover from back pain without surgery.”

A Potent Recovery Formula

Graham Tuffee,

Adelaide, South Australia

“Fred Amir has drawn on Dr. Sarno's principles of chronic pain management, which, combined with the experience of his personal ordeal and research into natural healing techniques, forms a potent recovery formula. It helped me recover from 15 months of back pain and five months of foot pain and disability.”

RSI Cured

Christopher J. Abraham

Toronto, Canada


“I had suffered from Repetitive Strain Injury (RSI) for seven years as a result of playing the piano and computer programming. I had undergone intensive physical therapy and massage therapy, done a lot of yoga, and tried many other healing techniques. All this time I believed that the cause of my pain was structural problems in my body. At last I came across the radical theories of Dr. Sarno and the techniques of Fred Amir. Rapid Recovery from Back and Neck pain was essential to my recovery. Now, six weeks after learning of this approach, I am 90% cured.”
