Product description

Sufferers of chronic pain learn how to adapt their lives and negotiate their discomfort with the techniques illustrated in this book. A wide range of approaches for managing persistent pain are described, offering chronic pain sufferers options that take into account the level of pain and lifestyle. Based on two highly successful multidisciplinary pain-management programs in the UK and Australia, the suggestions demonstrate awareness of current medical thinking and draw on the latest scientific research. For people who do not wish to rely on prescribed drugs, an integrated method is used, including physiotherapy and psychological techniques. This new edition is fully revised and updated to include a special chapter on pain management for the elderly, as well as clearly explaining the causes of pain and providing steps that anyone can take to minimize the impact of persistent pain on a sufferer's life, work, and leisure.
