For those who suffer from strains, sprains, arthritis, lack of mobility or flexibility in the body, this is a preventative, strengthening and healing guide all in one, suitable for the young, the elderly and those wanting something to work on at home.
Whether you suffer from aches, pains and creaky joints, or you simply feel old beyond your years, The Body In Action will help you achieve a better body and a healthier life.
Sarah Key, renowned physiotherapist and author of The Back Sufferers' Bible and Back in Action, shows you how to keep your skeleton young with a series of stretches designed to combat stiffness and pain.
Key shows you how to:
* spot the tell-tale warning signs of imminent joint problems
* take immediate action to reverse the trend
* exercise to alleviate pain and restore full mobility
Stretches derived from Iyengar yoga, which suit all levels of ability, are explained, and a 30-minute daily regime is outlined at the end of the book.
Extensively illustrated, with easy to follow advice and exercises, The Body In Action will help you break the bad habits that come with our increasingly sedentary lifestyle.
