This is an electronic copy of the Explain Pain book, now available for download.

For: Clinicians, people in pain and their families

All pain is real, and for many people it is a debilitating part of everyday life. However, it is now known that the more we understand pain, the less we will hurt.

Modern neurophysiology, brain imaging, immunology, psychology, pain sciences and thousands of peoples’ pain stories now provide a revolutionary and new way to treat pain. The Explain Pain Second Edition, in easy to follow language, discusses how pain experiences are constructed in response to dangers and threats in our bodies and influenced by our thoughts, beliefs and context. This knowledge is the key to recovery.

With the advances in pain sciences, Lorimer and David have subtly changed some of the language and content so that the second edition can be delivered with increased confidence. Explain Pain Second Edition is extensively referenced and links to the Explain Pain Handbook: Protectometer.

Noigroup Publications (2013) 90+ illustrations and diagrams.

Why a second edition?

A decade of scientific research is a lot – and we need to keep on top of it.

In the first 10 years of Explain Pain’s life there has been increasing support for therapeutic neuroscience education form clinical trials, educational science, neuroscience, plain logic and the failure of drug therapy on chronic pain outcomes. Lorimer and David have subtly changed some of the language so that the second edition can be delivered with much more authority than the first.
