Dr. James Warson—a neurosurgeon and lifelong horseman—says that over 90 percent of the population seeks help for back pain at one point or another during the course of life. If you’re a horseperson, back pain is of particular concern since everything you do on and around horses demands a supple, strong, healthy back: riding itself, grooming, tacking up, stacking hay bales, even pushing a wheelbarrow. This book provides all the practical information needed to understand the diagnosis, treatment, and pain management related to a rider’s back problems, whether they are inherited, or caused by riding, trauma, illness, posture, pregnancy, or aging. Dr. Warson breaks down the physics of movement and explains how combining two separate bodies—human and horse—creates additional sources of potential back strain and injury. Traditional and alternative treatments are discussed, and Dr. Warson includes step-by-step instructions for a do-it-yourself physical therapy plan that will not only help those already dealing with back pain, but more importantly, promises to improve rider flexibility and strength, preventing the onset of a problem. This new paperback edition features updates throughout, including a special section on riding after hip and knee replacement surgery.

Dr. James Warson (ret), began neurosurgery practice in Lexington, Kentucky in 1974. He relocated to Fort Collins, Colorado, where he founded Front Range Brain and Spine Surgery in 1978. He devoted the majority of his practice to spine surgery (performing over 6,000 procedures during his career) and diseases of equestrians caused or aggravated by riding were Dr. Warson's field of expertise. In 1984, Dr. Warson established J & J Farms, where he bred, trained, exhibited, and sold multiple Grand National and World Champion Morgan horses. Today Dr. Warson is based in Fairfax, Virginia, where he is the Mid-Atlantic Medical Director for the Medeval Corporation and serves as Medical Director for Rider Health and Safety with the Western Dressage Association of America. He consults with the US Para-Equestrian Association, NCAA, and American Morgan Horse Association, and is a life-certified horse appraiser. Dr. Warson is a diplomate of the board of Neurological Surgery and a retired Fellow of the American College of Surgeons.
