Back Pain Understood:

A Cutting Edge Approach To Healing Your Back

by Brian Hainline, M.D., ’78 (Medicus Press)


The author, who was a star player on the varsity tennis team at Notre Dame in the 1970s, presents a multidisciplinary approach to the management and treatment of back pain, particularly chronic pain. He explains surgical, nonsurgical and mind-body treatment options of conditions from sacroiliac pain to lumbar disc herniation, often using real-life patient stories. Numerous illustrations and photos accompany the text.

Dr. Hainline is a neurologist who also serves as the chief medical officer of the US Open Tennis Championships.
