This is a great little book (under 75pg) that will provide a basic understanding of acute lower back issues and offer exercises to treat them. The book usefully reinforces advice that we all know but infrequently follow: posture is important, lift carefully, don’t sit for long periods with poor back support…etc. It also provides basic exercises to get the spine back to a preferred ‘natural’ curve. While useful in many cases, this is not for those with severe or chronic problems. If interested, you can probably just Google the McKenzie method and find material that way.
