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), 133 pages, 90+ illustrations and diagrams, half-canadian wiro bound.
“I received the Explain Pain really fast and passed it on to my client. We are working through it together and she is making good progress. Good news - the insurance company paid for it! ”
“Explain Pain verifies questions regarding pain that I have had over 30 years of reading literature on TMJ pain. My daughter, who is on the home straight for Occupational Therapy, has stolen it from me and considered its content excellent also.”
“I must say the books were excellent, certainly helped me to understand 'chronic pain', to 'tweak' my rehab program and manage the pain and hopefully retrain my body to recover from my injury.”
