A physical therapist tells how to relieve back and neck pain, of which 70 million Americans suffer. Your movement and posture may be the source - or the cure - for neck and low back pain. Mike Hage shows you how to analyze your patterns of standing, bending, breathing - even thinking. Learn to adjust these patterns in every move you make, from getting out of bed and choosing the right shoes to talking on the phone and getting to work. Take control of your pain and participate in your own rehabilitation by reprogramming your body to move correctly.
