Kurzbeschreibung

30. August 2007
Access the latest research and applications to build effective prevention and rehabilitation programs for your patients or clients with "Low Back Disorders: Evidence-Based Prevention and Rehabilitation, Second Edition". Internationally recognized low back specialist Stuart McGill presents original research to quantify the forces that specific movements and exercises impose on the low back, dispels myths regarding spine stabilization exercises, and suggests prevention approaches and strategies to offset injuries and restore function. "Low Back Disorders: Evidence-Based Prevention and Rehabilitation, Second Edition", presents a clear exposition of back anatomy and biomechanics and demonstrates how to interpret the latest research on low back involvement for clinical applications. The text also contains detailed information on injuries associated with seated work and sport and ergonomic issues related to manual handling of materials. With "Low Back Disorders: Evidence-Based Prevention and Rehabilitation, Second Edition", you will gain valuable information on measured loading of the back during specific activities and apply it to avoid common, but counterproductive practices in back rehabilitation; learn how to analyze each patient's or client's unique physical characteristics and lifestyle factors to tailor preventive measures and treatments to individual needs; learn how to help patients and clients progress through the stages of rehabilitation: corrective exercise, stability or mobility, endurance, and strength; and acquire the information necessary to design an effective injury-prevention program. This fully updated second edition expands knowledge of low back disorders and best practices in several areas. Enhanced algorithms guide progessive therapeutic exercise, and specially designed patient assessment provocation tests aid you in determining the cause of back troubles, guide your choices in the best ways to eliminate problems, and improve the development of appropriate activities for functional gain. Whereas the first edition focused on increasing spine stability, the second edition provides new information on dealing with both regional instability or mobility and regional stiffness present in individuals where most of the motion occurs at a single spinal segment. With an expanded repertoire of pain-free motion exercises and additional information on ways to find and adjust stabilization exercises, "Low Back Disorders: Evidence-Based Prevention and Rehabilitation, Second Edition", offers you new tools to help your patients and clients achieve pain-free exertion. The text includes exercises and activities that provide a solid foundation of physical work in preparation for more advanced activities in sports and occupations. Also, the process of transitioning into performance exercise is outlined with an explanation of the critical stages of the performance pyramid, including the design of appropriate corrective exercise, building joint and whole-body stability, enhancing endurance, training true strength, and transitioning to ultimate performance. "Low Back Disorders: Evidence-Based Prevention and Rehabilitation, Second Edition", presents foundational information and corresponding clinical applications in a clear, well-sequenced format. Part I builds your knowledge of lumbar function and injury. Part II demonstrates how to use this knowledge to build evidence-based injury-prevention programs by assessing risks, creating ergonomic interventions, and training personnel. Part III focuses on improving rehabilitation techniques, including specific diagnostic and provocative tests, with specific therapeutic exercises proven to enhance performance and reduce pain through a continuum from corrective exercise to stability and mobility, endurance, strength, and power. Additionally, the text offers practical features to guide your learning and inform your practice: through more than 475 photos, graphs, and charts support the research and the scientific basis for the text's conclusions. More than 50 tests and exercises with step-by-step instructions help you develop successful programs for your patients and clients, special sections highlight how the anatomical, biomechanical, and research results can be applied to clinical situations. Cutting-edge research and evidence-based application strategies from the leading spine specialist in North America make "Low Back Disorders: Evidence-Based Prevention and Rehabilitation, Second Edition", the authoritative text for study, care, and treatment of the low back. Its unique approach to back care will guide you in developing intervention, rehabilitation, and prevention programs to address the unique needs of each patient or client and develop a strong scientific foundation for your practice.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Interesting findings 7. April 2013
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Verifizierter Kauf
This book is well structured and well written. The exercises are well described and well presented, in context and with progressions. I currently teach his findings to all my clients with back-pain. I also do the exercises myself. The scientific background is cutting edge and finally gives all the answers to back related troubles.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Ok but full of him self. 12. September 2010
Von Jeuring
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
Mr. Mc. Gill writes interesting things, but isn't always capable of keeping a neutral point of view. For instance he more or less writes that Waddell is blaming Back pain almost purely on psychosomatic disorders, but who has read the "backpain revolution" knows it acknowledges biomechanical causes for back pain, but states that the interpretation of this complaints is often dysfunctional.

5.0 von 5 Sternen A 'must read' for everyone who deals with backs 28. Januar 2006
Von T. Jordan - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
Everyone who deals with backs, either in sports (athletes, coaches, trainers), physicians, therapists, and back pain patients themselves, should read this book. I am a physician who specializes in back disorders and back pain. I have followed Dr. McGill's reseach for many years and it has revolutionized my practice like nothing else. One of my top priorities with back pain patients is to review what exercises they have been given in the past. I invariably stop them from doing several excercises that Dr. McGill's research has proven to be quite harmful for the back. I Substitute the 'big three' excercises that are described in this book, and many of the patients need no further intervention. There is a great deal of misinformation regarding back excercise, and many of the excercise routines used in sports, schools, military, and fitness centers are harmful. That is why this book is so important; not because it gives another fitness guru's opinion, but because it gives good, scientifically based facts on one of the tougher clinical issues from a world renown expert. Thank you Dr. McGill - keep the research coming!

Also check out Dr. McGill's other book "Ultimate back fitness and performance" for a less technically dense description of many of the same issues.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Great Evidence-Based Book 5. November 2010
Von Pam "run2fast" - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
This is a great evidence-based book, meaning that the information it covers is backed-up by research. On almost every page you can find multiple citations of published studies- which can provide a great starting point for a literature search if a topic interests you.

The book is divided up into 3 parts:

-Scientific Foundation, where you get a lot of general info about various topics such as anatomy of the spine, back belts, the epidemiology of back pain, and so on

-Injury Prevention, where you learn about, well, the research on preventing back problems

-Low Back Rehab, where you learn about the author's 5-stage back training program

The book definitely emphasizes spinal stability, and rightly so, as the research strongly supports this intervention. Unsafe exercises are discussed as well.

With lots of pictures and a not-too-technical tone, I can certainly recommend that anyone who deals with low back pain patients check it out. Other evidence-based back books I liked include Treat Your Own Spinal Stenosis.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Help for Sufferers of Low Back Pain 26. Dezember 2002
Von Ruth Shannon - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
This is a superb book that is useful for both clinicians and patients alike. Using methods based on electromyographic measurements published by McGill and his colleagues in many scientific journals, he ascertains which muscles are activated in a variety of exercises. This becomes important for patients who have low back problems and must avoid heavy spine loads both in the fitness center and at work. He lists a variety of commonly prescribed exercises that should be avoided by persons with low back problems: sit ups, pelvic tilts, leg raises, low back extension exercises on machines and hip flexion exercises using the Roman chair. He then recommends a series of exercises that are designed to strengthen back muscles and stabilize the spine while at the same time minimizing spinal compression that could exacerbate back problems: the curl-up, side bridges and "bird dog" leg extensions.

This book should be recommended reading for all physical therapists and strength trainers with clients having low back problems and is a must for those suffering from low back pains.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Comprehensive and Practical Approach to Patient Reactivation 11. Dezember 2002
Von Craig Liebenson - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
This wonderful text focuses on the all important role of activity, exercise, and fitness in the prevention and treatment of low back disorders. In particular, the clinical publications emerging from Australia and Denmark are reviewed and balanced by scientific investigation of spinal loads with different activities. Professor McGill's book is highly practical and thoroughly evidence-based.
This new book fills a void as a perfect cornerstone to the biopsychosocial model of patient reactivation recommended by international guidelines throughout the world (AHCPR, CSAG, DIHTA). Most significantly, the patient reactivation model being advocated by evidence-based experts today is made more clinically relevant as a result of this thoughtful and practical presentation of the "tools of the trade" for presecribing physiologically sound reactivation approaches. This is the ideal complement to simple reassuring reactivation advice being recommended for acute, uncomplicated low back pain patients and more involved cognitive-behavioral strategies being recommended for complex, chronic patients. It is most relevant for those subacute patients who are at risk of becoming chronically disabled.
McGill highlights the recent scientific evidence which has unmasked the failure of diagnostic imaging to find the "cause" of back pain. He instead points clinicians towards the often ignored literature about the methods available for establishing the patient's functional diagnosis. This section is of great clinical value since most health care providers perform a limited functional assessment of low back pain patients.
Popular concepts such as stability are defined, quantified, and made practical. The author explains how he determines spinal load profiles of routine activities of daily living and common exercises. In turn, many common beliefs about exercise are revealed as based on myth rather than evidence.
For example he exposes the myths of lifting with a straight back, the pelvic tilt, performing sit-ups with bent knees, and the prone superman exercise. Other popular approaches such as the use of back belts or abdominal hollowing are discussed from a functional perspective.
This book is most valuable to practicing clinicians for his elegant presentation of safe back exercises for subacute back pain patients. These simple exercises are shown along with the evidence demonstrating their safety and value. For instance, the cat-camel, quadruped leg reach, side bridge, and trunk curl are shown as biomechanically safe exercises which can be prescribed as a beginner program for most low back pain patients. Hopefully, randomized, controlled clinical trials will soon follow to further validate such exercises in patient populations.
Many sufferers of low back pain are engaged in ardous sport or occupational activities. The book concludes with a section on more advanced exercises that have preventive and conditioning value, although would be inappropriate for the subacute treatment phase. This is once again invaluable information for practicing clinicians which can help steer patients away from chronic pain, disability, treatment dependency, overmedication, deconditioning, fear-avoidance behavior, and unncessary surgery. Pr. McGill is to be applauded for this utterly brilliant and practical patient information presented in such a humble, small package.

5.0 von 5 Sternen A MUST FOR PHYSICAL FITNESS FANATICS - SEE ALSO "ULTIMATE BACK FITNESS AND PERFORMANCE" 4Th (2009) & 5TH (2014) ED. 22. April 2010
Von Roo.Bookaroo - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Verifizierter Kauf
This is a vital book concerning one of the major problems of our modern life.
Prof. Stuart McGill is a professor in the Dep't of Kinesiology at the University of Waterloo, Ontario. He is the director of its Spine Biomechanics Laboratory.
This is his famous textbook, "Low Back Disorders", which examines back injuries in the light of biomechanics' scientific knowledge, and prescribes exercises and tests for the rehabilitation of injured backs and the prevention of future injuries.
The book has 241 pages of solid, dense text and extremely valuable information, with a great number of pictures and tables. And it comes in a superb hard cover. You get full value for the money.

"Low Back Disorders" is primarily geared to professionals in back treatment and rehabilitation, who want to become more sophisticated practitioners and learn the scientific facts underlying rehab techniques.
But, in the same light, this book is also essential for any member of the 3F club (Physical Fitness Fanatics) concerned about the impact on the back of fitness training and athletic practices.
Saving one's back from injury is vital, the more so that most physical fitness fanatics are urban professionals who tend to spend a large portion of their lives sitting, not a natural posture for the architecture of the back, and as they grow older, when the back becomes more fragile and vulnerable.

Stuart McGill assumes that most readers are not familiar with the full scientific facts of back architecture and function. So, he starts with the very basics and gives us a primer on "Essentials of the Back 101".

Central to Stuart McGill's tenets is insisting on the importance of
- maintaining the "neutral posture" of the spine,
- respecting the natural lower-back curvature,
- and not imposing extra flexion to the natural curvature of the upper spine.
This leads to the debunking of traditional training exercises, such as the classic sit-ups and all varieties of crunches, which create extreme flexion and high levels of compression in the spine, and undermine back stability.

He insists on
- tensing all the abdominal muscles in an isometric bracing of the abdominal girdle as the fundamental principle of providing stability and protection to the back,
- and using a stable torso solidly linked to the pelvis as a relay of force generated by the hips and shoulders, and not by the back.

In the same vein, the good professor warns against the use of most machines offered in commercial gyms, such as the Roman chair, back twisting machines, leg press-up machines.
He objects to
- the permanent sitting required for these machines,
- and the fact that they limit joint motion to a strict mechanical pattern, depriving all the soft passive tissues of their natural range.

He deplores the perversion introduced by bodybuilding in the current trends of physical training. Very strong men have only hypertrophied muscles, and no overall fitness. Just pull sideways on his sleeve, and the strongman may well lose his balance.
Prof. Stuart McGill's famous motto is "Groove the motion, train the movement, not the muscle".

Prof. Stuart McGill is famous for his preferred "BIG THREE" exercises for the back:
1) the curl-up,
2) the side bridge,
and 3) the birddog,
all of them with stages of increasing challenge and complexity.

There are quite a few more, if not so basic as the "Big Three", all detailed throughout the book, with an abundance of good pictures.
For warm-up of the spine, nothing better than the cat/camel exercice.
Stuart McGill shows how to achieve back stability and spare the low back by
- maximizing the fundamental use of hips (the "hip hinge")
- and recruiting the use of the powerful gluteal muscles (with the clam and one-leg squats).

In general, he recommends:
- use of free weights, dumbbells, cables, stretch bands and resistance tubes,
- preferring one-armed and one-leg exercises as being more challenging than symmetrical exercises,
- avoiding the extreme end range of motion in exercises.
- avoiding being seduced by a misguided conception of "flexibility" for the back,
- being wary of the overuse of "stretching" exercises for their only sake.
- and being very skeptical of many practices of the fashionable vogues, such as yoga, or Pilates.

He insists on
- learning correct motions,
- grooving them to obtain perfect form,
- and only then cultivate ENDURANCE by a SERIES OF SHORT SETS, instead of increasing the number of reps in one long set. Endurance comes before strength, which is developed only once endurance is established.

Only Ch. 13, the last one, analyzes "Advanced Exercises", those for high-performance workers and athletes, putting the accent on low-back exercises to be practiced only by athletes who already have established a solid base of fitness and overall strength.

He wisely warns that Olympic lifting is an expert specialty that should be left to the professionals in this sport. He bemoans the fact that many young lifters, even though aware of his warnings, still manage to damage their backs.

He insists that regular 3F members, ordinary urban physical fitness fanatics, should be very cautious in trying to imitate too eagerly the training programs of professional competitors before they have established enough advanced fitness and strength.

Top professional competitors are not in sports and athletic pursuits for fitness, or good looks, or losing weight, but they enter an arena as modern Samurai or heroic warriors engaged in intense fights where the only goal is pulverizing an opponent and "winning," as a step to gaining fame and riches. In this world of extreme competition, "back fitness" is a secondary consideration, and "back injuries" a professional hazard that's par for the game.

This last chapter is revisited and vastly amplified in Prof. Stuart McGill's other book, "Ultimate Back Fitness AND Performance", especially geared to performers in sports and athletic competitions. This fitness manual is indeed another essential book for any member of the 3F club (Physical Fitness Fanatics) concerned about his/her back.

ALERT: TRY TO GET THE 4TH EDITION OF THE "ULTIMATE BACK FITNESS AND PERFORMANCE", INSTEAD OF THE 3D EDITION, AND DON'T GET CONFUSED BY AMAZING AMAZON'S LISTINGS

Warning! You will find this ULTIMATE BACK FITNESS AND PERFORMANCE book listed on Amazon in two different sections:
1) in the BOOKS section under its original title, which clearly figures in caps on the cover, indicating also in caps, FOURTH EDITION. However, when you examine the details of the book, you read that what is offered is the 3d edition of 2004 (in spite of the cover picture).
2) in the ALL DEPARTMENTS section, the offering is the 4th edition of 2009, but it now is given a slightly different title, with "&" replacing the original "AND". The cover picture remains that of the original cover with its original title, figuring "AND".

So when you search for the book with its original title, you are automatically referred to the listing in the BOOKS section offering the 3d edition. You will never guess that there is also a listing for the 4th edition, since, to find it, you have to know that you have to change the title by replacing "AND" with "&". Even I was not aware of this manipulation.
So the same book is listed in two different sections, offering either the 3d edition (2004), or the 4th edition (2009) of the same book, under SLIGHTLY DIFFERENT TITLES. You have to admire marketing ingenuity, or the art of deceiving the consumer.
This kind of game seems to be pretty unusual, and a tricky marketing gimmick, to keep selling the copies of the 3d edition still available.
However, don't be so sure. For I wonder whether Amazon is not using this trick for other books, or other products, creating new listings in ALL DEPARTMENTS different from their original listings in their respective natural sections, but still offering the same product in slightly different formats. Think of the ethics of the practice, and question whether this does not smack of fudging.

You can also get two DVDs produced by Stuart McGill, which are also helpful, as live illustrations of the two books. They offer good content, but are not professionally polished.

The great value of "Low Back Disorders" is that it is based on a scientific understanding of the basic facts in the anatomy, physiology, and biomechanics of the back.
In spite of some readers' objections, I feel it is extremely valuable to exactly understand how the back works -- basic facts about which most people have not the faintest idea --, and Prof. Stuart McGill does a first-class job in giving us the fundamentals.

- We discover our neglected extension muscles, "Longissimus," "Iliocostalis," and "Multifidus".
- We regain acquaintance with our familiar "Rectus Abdominis", which happens to be one and not a family of six.
- We get a full picture of the Abdominal Wall, with the famous "External and Internal Obliques"
- and do not try to isolate "Transverse Abdominis."
- We get to meet our new friend, "Quadratus Lumborum",
- and acknowledge the vital importance of "Psoas" and "Iliacus" in hip flexion and stabilization,
- while greeting the key contributions of "Gluteus Medius" and "Gluteus Maximus".

Surrounded by all the members of this new family, we are in good shape to absorb Prof. Stuart McGill's instruction. This kind of knowledge should be taught in high school to all children. Knowledge of the musculoskeletal system is fundamental and vital for all sports and the conduct of our daily lives.

Sadly, most people know nothing about the biomechanics of the back beyond the simplistic and popular myths spread by school coaches and commercial fitness trainers for whom the primary interest is making money by joining fads and vogues, and not providing basic scientific information, which they often don't even have.
In that sense, "Low Back Disorders" is an indispensable primer to any fitness enthusiast.

This book is also a joy to use and study. It has been superbly edited by a full technical team at Human Kinetics, which unfortunately was not in charge of producing the companion book, "Ultimate Back Fitness AND Performance," which does not enjoy the same kind of professional presentation.

The critically useful features of "Low Back Disorders" are:
1) a completely detailed table of contents describing all the material and concepts;
2) a complete list of all the exercises mentioned in the book;
and 3) an extensive index at the end allowing the reader to zero in immediately on any item of interest.

All this increases the usefulness and effectiveness of the book, and becomes extremely helpful when you start digging seriously into the text.
- For instance, you can find where the variations of "cable exercises" are mentioned and illustrated.
- Or all the instances of analyzing and illustrating the "abdominal bracing", and " the "neutral spine position", two key concepts of Stuart McGill's doctrine.
- Same for any other kind of research: "Learning to activate the gluteus" or the "hip hinge," and "hip flexion".

You don't have to waste precious time leafing through the chapters. To any professional book user, the three editing features mentioned above are a major convenience.
(Note, and this is one of my many criticisms directed at ULTIMATE BACK FITNESS AND PERFORMANCE, not for its content, but for its physical presentation, that the three critical features of the medical book are not incorporated in the fitness manual, which is a major nuisance to all users.)
The self-references inside the medical book itself could be slightly improved, however (while they are practically non-existant in the fitness book.)

Never educated as a fitness trainer nor a sports team coach, McGill used his lab expertise to compile a fitness manual: ULTIMATE BACK FITNESS AND PERFORMANCE, 4th (2009), 5th ED (2014). For the lure of profits, he regrettably self-published that manual, a poor physical product compared to the professional quality of Human Kinetics in this LOW BACK DISORDERS textbook. See my Comment/Alert about the 5th ed. (2014)
