Violation of correct movement principles involves running, walking, sitting, bending, and wearing unsuitable contemporary footwear such as high-heeled shoes, which cause an imbalance in the muscles that later progresses to deformation. This is a harsh reminder for you to pay attention to appropriate body movement to avoid the negative forces affecting the musculoskeletal system, which accelerates deformation. Before the principles of movement, body defects, and their treatments, Marian Jodlowski introduces us to life energy and health in Fix Your Back Like an Architect, where he discusses the two types of energy, their sources, and how they strengthen the body to overcome obstacles and handle complex tasks. This is important since most of the disorders of the motor organs are related to low energy in the muscles and some internal organs. The author discusses the importance of sleep in helping one regain lost energy during the day. Lastly, Jodlowski educates us on spine conditions, such as scoliosis, discopathies, and lumbago, their causes, and their treatments.
Marian Jodlowski, having been a victim of musculoskeletal dysfunction, writes Fix Your Back Like an Architect from his own experiences and through research. The information discussed is authentic and the product of empirical and extensive research and thereby is reliable. In addition, the author has included a bibliography at the end of the book, which contains references for readers to conduct further reading. Marian’s choice of words is also commendable, as he does not restrict himself to medical jargon that would otherwise be challenging. I also loved the inclusion of colorful illustrations, which complemented his narration and helped my understanding of the topics. I recommend this book to readers with back problems since it will enable them to understand the problems, their causes, and offers suggestions for treatment.
