More than 55 million Americans have experienced chronic pain lasting more than three years, and even more will suffer from back pain at some point in their lives. In this groundbreaking new book, Mitchell Yass claims that such pain is the result not of physical injuries such as herniated discs or arthritis, but of muscular imbalance and weakness.
Using the program he has developed in his fifteen years as a physical therapist, Yass provides a comprehensive strength-training program to help readers overcome pain and return to full functioning capacity. Unlike other books, which provide only quick fixes for resolving or coping with the problem, Overpower Pain describes in detail how muscle functions, how it causes pain, and what specific exercises can be done to relieve pain in every part of the body.
Praise for Overpower Pain
After ten years of suffering with pain in my right hip area, I am now pain free. I went to half a dozen chiropractors seeking relief and I only felt worse. But Mitchell Yass identified the source of my pain and within a few minutes I was exercising to strengthen the appropriate muscles. What a revelation!

I have referred many patients to Mitchell Yass. His diagnostic and therapeutic abilities have shown him to be a man able to resolve complaints of pain at all areas of the body including the neck and lower back. I was pleased to find out that Mitchell wrote a book describing the idea that most pain is caused by muscular weakness and imbalance. I am in complete agreement with this idea and therefore I wholeheartedly endorse his book.
