Your Body Book by Doranne Long is a handy guide to help you control pain in certain areas of your body and, in some cases, help you regain the full range of motion throughout your body. Doranne begins the book with a head to toe scan of every portion of your body and its joints, illustrating how these areas can have issues involving a limited range of motion and subsequent pain. She gives suggestions for stretching and restoring motion in a number of these sections as well. Next, she discusses particular problems and issues that you might come across, and the causes and possible solutions for recovery. Third, Doranne discusses particular health habits including hydration, nutrition, sleeping, posture, balance, flexibility and many more circumstances and actions which can contribute to pain, inflammation, loss of motion, and the correction of those problems when practiced correctly. Finally, she wraps up with exercises that can help restore motion, stretch muscles or strengthen particularly troublesome areas. The wealth of information found within this book will arm you with the necessary information to help relieve many of the symptoms from which you suffer and/or arm you for a more intelligent conversation with a healthcare provider.
As a back and neck pain sufferer, I was excited to get my hands on Doranne Long’s Your Body Book and have a chance to discover additional techniques and therapies for helping to alleviate some of my pain. The stretching and motion exercises, along with making me concentrate further on my posture, were particularly helpful in my situation. Additionally, the hydration, nutrition and sleeping suggestions seem to be helping me as well. In many ways, what Doranne has done is make me more aware of some of the habits that I actually didn’t connect with my pain. This book is simple, direct and easy to use. If you are suffering from pain, Your Body Book will likely be the answer that you’ve been looking for in order to guide yourself back to optimum health.
