Low Back Disorder offers a way out: a systematic, scientifically based method of thinking about the biomechanics of the low back and how to specifically diagnose and specifically treat low back pain by changing postures, movements and loads and prescribing the appropriate type and "dose" of exercise. This one volume is a clear antidote to the ineptitude that ails conventional spine care and it is worth mentioning that Professor McGill has restored countless elite athletes with devastating spine injuries (Google Brian Carroll). These methods clearly have worked for Professor McGill.
The level of clinical precision in diagnosis and treatment for low back pain is something I thought was impossible. In conventional medicine, it is posited that over 85% of cases of low back pain have no directly detectable cause. This amorphous entity is known as nonspecific low back pain and underlies the futility of modern practice. It is truly a bankrupt expertise to not knowing what is going on 85% of the time! So you can imagine what a relief it was to read that there was no such thing as nonspecific low back pain. Rather it was a case of "clinicians reaching the limit of their expertise." It seemed to be a minor miracle that a higher level of insight was possible after having it drilled into me for years that even a specific diagnosis was generally impossible.
It has been about two years since I bought Low Back Disorders and I can say with the certainty of personal experience that this system of thought, collectively known as the McGill method is effective. By applying these principles, I am gaining insights that I never imagined I could gain. I have helped improve patients to whom I previously could offer nothing but medication and I personally can diagnose over 90% of all cases of low back pain I encounter. This should be required reading for any professional who practices clinical spine care--chiropractors, physical therapists and doctors. I suspect that if you do the deep work of mastering the contents of this book, you will become one of the best spine practitioners in your community.
If you are not interested in this level of depth or find anatomy conversations boring or difficult I would read Back Mechanic instead. This is unashamedly as resource for the physical treatment industry.
