No one is immune. For people from champion athletes to desk-bound white-collar professionals, many simple acts of life--a relaxing evening stroll through the neighborhood, an exhilarating run along a sandy beach, just bending down to tie a loose shoelace-are often acts of torture. The walking wounded suffer from torn rotator cuffs, tennis elbow, jogger's knees, bad backs, stiff necks, sore feet, and swollen ankles. It could, without exaggeration, be called a modem epidemic. In this brilliant book, renowned anatomical functionalist Pete Egoscue identifies the epidemic's causes and effects. By recognizing that the human body is dependent on adequate motion to maintain its full range of physical functions, he has revolutionized both the treatment of musculoskeletal pain and the techniques for training athletes to achieve peak performance levels. Brimming with common sense and practical advice, the heart of this important book consists of twenty-two easy-to-do, highly effective exercises that stretch, strengthen, and relax the body, allowing a return to proper alignment.

Pete Egoscue, founder of The Egoscue Method Clinic in San Diego, has been practicing and perfecting his Pain Free method since 1971.

Jack Nicklaus was born January 21, 1940 in Columbus, Ohio. He began playing golf at the age of 10, and at the age of 16 he won his first major tournament, the Ohio Open. His next important victory came in 1959 when he won the U.S. Amateur Championship. Two years later, in 1961, he won the U.S. Amateur title again and captured the NCAA championship while playing for Ohio State University. From 1959 through 1961 Nicklaus won all but one of the 30 amateur tournaments he entered. Nicklaus turned professional in 1962 and won three tournaments that year. The victories included his first major professional title, the 1962 U.S. Open, which he won in a playoff against popular American golfer Arnold Palmer, which created a rivalry between the two players that lasted through the 60s. During his professional career Nicklaus won six Masters tournaments, the most by any player in the competition's history. His 1986 win at the age of 46 made Nicklaus the oldest Masters winner in history. He also won five PGA championships, three more U.S. Open titles, and three British Open titles. He was named the PGA's player of the year five times, and won the PGA's Golfer of the Century award in 1988. Nicklaus joined the Senior tour in 1990 and has won a number of major events, including the United States Senior Open in 1991 and 1993. Throughout his career he has designed many noted golf courses, and in 1993, Golf World Magazine named him architect of the year. That same year Golf Digest recognized ten of the courses Nicklaus designed on its list of the 100 best golf courses in America. His autobiography, Jack Nicklaus: My Story, appeared in 1997.
