Reader Reviews
A Must-read for pain sufferers!, July 14, 2000
Reviewer: J. Marcus Stewart from San Jose, CA USA
The "Bonnie Prudden Way" is called "myotherapy", since it concentrates on muscles as the root cause of most pain. Even pain that isn't normally considered muscular, like migraine headaches (called "vascular" as opposed to "muscle-tension") responds to myotherapy. I know from experience with myself and others. The same is often true of pain caused by spine misalignment (which may be caused by muscles in the back pulling the spine out of alignment) or even tendinitis (muscles under trauma often block circulation, leading to inflammation). The plain fact of the matter is, 90+% of pain can be cured by myotherapy, and this book does a VERY good job of teaching the technique.

Bonnie Prudden's writing style is refreshingly straight forward and pragmatic. She tells what works and what doesn't, and how to get results. You won't read about "harmony" or "balance" or "energy flows"; she just tells you what to do to make the pain go away. The chapters in the book are arranged by body regions, starting from the head and working downwards. Be forewarned, however, that you can't cure a headache just by reading the chapter on the head. Most headaches (even migraines) are rooted in the neck and shoulders. Backaches are often rooted in the legs and feet. So read all of the chapters before you start practicing.

The latter portion of the book is devoted to stretching and toning exercises. They are designed to provide maximum benefit with minimum trauma, and are quite effective. Bonnie Prudden is a physical therapist, so she is well-qualified to write on the subject.

In short, if you're suffering from pain, or know someone who is, get this book. You won't be sorry.


This book changed our lives, December 16, 1998
A reader from California, USA
After my wife exhausting every "traditional" method of relief for a severe case of plantar fascitis (swelling of the plantar muscle under the foot) I decided to seek an alternative view to pain correction. Traditional therapy treatments, pain killers and an assortment of drugs didn't work. I happened to run across Ms. Prudden's book and simply thought, "What can it hurt?" This was, I admit, a rather unusual birthday present, but she was in so much pain she could hardly walk by the end of the day. We faithfully applied the techniques as outlined in this book and the swelling under her foot disappeared in a matter of weeks, as did the pain. Since then, we have applied Ms. Prudden's methods for neck spasms, back strains, etc. In fact, I'm here to buy this book for one of our good friends who is battling the same foot condition that caused my wife such terrible pain. Buy this book and try it. What do you have to loose?

A Reader Review
Complete, safe, imaginative, fun exercise for people over 50, April 30, 1999
Bonnie Prudden calls people over 50 "the last fit Americans." By this she means that older people built their bodies to be strong and functional, by playing outdoors as children, walking to school, etc. Even if their fitness has declined, it can be regained. Ms. Prudden debunks myths about older people ("you can't teach an old dog new tricks," "all old people end up in nursing homes," etc.) and presents a clear, simple fitness test to use in taking stock of one's life and current fitness level. She presents her time-tested exercise program, relating exercises to specific problems such as "gardener's back," "stairs - going up and coming down," etc. Along with the exercises, Ms. Prudden discusses Myotherapy, the pain relief method she developed, and gives corrective exercises for many pain problems (migraine, sciatica, whiplash, etc.) as well as "immediate mobilization" techniques to use after an acute injury. Interspersed with more exercises are descriptions of pain problems related to various occupations and sports. For those who are chair-bound or unsteady on their feet, exercises that can be done in a chair are presented.
