GOOD READ: THE “YOUNGER NEXT YEAR BACK BOOK” BY CHRIS CROWLEY AND DR. JEREMY JAMES

Jeremy James and Chris Crowley – the latter is the originator and coauthor of the “Younger Next Year” books – have written a comprehensive guide to Jeremy’s protocol for ending back pain called “The Younger Next Year Back Book.” The original “Younger Next Year” books — written by Chris and the late New York internist and Columbia University Medical Center professor, Henry S. Lodge, MD — have sold over two million copies in 23 languages. Their basic premise: behavioral change (especially exercise) can put off 70% of aging until close to the end of life and completely eliminate 50% of major illnesses and accidents (like heart disease, diabetes, and most cancers). Those claims turn out to be quite true, and the books have become cult books and life-changers for people over 40.

Jeremy came to Chris with the notion of doing a serious back book together, because Jeremy’s 5-Step BackForever protocol — with its 80% success rate — is also heavily behavior-based and life-changing. In addition, he and Chris had done a number of “Younger Next Year” retreats together and knew each other well. The idea was to write a solid, science-based book on Jeremy’s protocol that Chris would help to make readable and motivational, like “Younger Next Year.” The alternating voices of the scientist and the amateur/client would also follow that model.

As Chris tells it, “Jeremy’s young and smart, and I’m old and funny. Together we thought we could tell this very complex story in a way that is sound but also readable and almost fun. Well, ‘fun,’ is strong but at least it won’t make your teeth hurt. And, by heaven, it is persuasive. We think we can get you to tackle your back pain the only way that’s going to work in the end: by changing your behavior, including a serious, life-long exercise habit. Sounds hard but it’s way easier than living with back pain. The book spells out why it makes sense and exactly what to do. And it’s a pretty good read.”

"THIS IS A GREAT BOOK FOR BACK PAIN SUFFERERS AND THEIR CAREGIVERS ALIKE. THE GUIDANCE OFFERED WILL ALLOW THE AFFLICTED TO GET ON A PATH TO RECOVERY AND WELLNESS...TO GET BACK TO WHAT THEY LOVE TO DO."

Following back surgery in the fall of 2014 and physical therapy to recover, I was introduced to Jeremy through a friend. [It] could have been one of the most significant introductions of my life. His series of foundational exercises have helped me rebuild from the inside out and are still a part of my daily routine three years later. Incorporating his ideas into my workout has made my core so much stronger than [it] ever was, and it allows me to participate in so many of the activities we live for here in Colorado. I love to ski, hike, mountain bike, and even coach youth football. The coolest part is I get do these things with my two kids (ages 9 and 11) thanks to Jeremy.

I started working with Jeremy in 2014 after suffering for years with episodes of very intense low back pain. It all started with a fall in 2000 that caused permanent damage to my SI joint. Since the fall I would experience regular periods of terrible low back and pelvic pain and a feeling of being out of alignment. I was told that the fall caused a sprain to ligaments in my pelvis, resulting in a permanently unstable SI joint. I saw many chiropractors, massage therapists, doctors, and acupuncturists. While some of these were able to give me short term relief, I never experienced any lasting relief. I lived in constant fear that bending down to pick something up or some other formerly insignificant activity would cause days of pain. Jeremy taught me how to use the muscles in my core to support my SI joint and guided me through a program to strengthen the muscles in my pelvis to keep myself in alignment. He also showed me how to move so that I could go through life without the fear of putting myself “out.” Once I got my low back pain under control, Jeremy upped my workouts to include movements and fast paced exercises I would have not thought possible. If I follow his protocol I am mostly pain free. My episodes are far less frequent and much less severe if they do happen. They are usually a result of me doing something I shouldn’t have done or falling off of the exercise wagon. I am now able to live my life free of the stress and fear of debilitating pain.

-Kay Dunton,

I have had back pain for over 20 years that was becoming progressively worse each year. When I went skiing, all I could do is think about how my back was hurting. My back became so unhealthy that at one point I could not sit or lift more than 20 pounds. I was in Aspen when a patient of Jeremy’s told me I should go see Jeremy at to the Aspen Back and Body Institute. After having Jeremy work with me, l no longer worry about back pain. A few days ago, my wife asked me to carry 85-pound bags of fertilizer. I did it with no problem. When I am in Aspen, I always go see Jeremy at The Aspen Club Back Institute.
