Book Description

“I believe you will marvel, as I constantly do now, at just how mucha doctor can learn in four years.” --- Dr. Robert T. Cochran

In 2004, Dr. Robert T. Cochran published Understanding Chronic Pain, a ground-breaking
work exploring the links between pain, depression, childhood trauma, substance
abuse, and bipolar disease. A companion to that work, Curing Chronic Pain demonstrates
the advancements Cochran has made in successfully treating patients suffering from
pain. He has found that chronic pain can be alleviated with the careful application of
certain drugs, even those in the controversial opiate class. In many cases, Cochran says,
“miraculous cures have been achieved.”

Presented in a conversational, anecdotal format, this book examines the specific
experiences of chronic pain patients under Cochran’s supervision. As a reader you will
be struck by Cochran’s warmth, compassion, intellect, and willingness to confront the
complicated issues surrounding treatment. There is hope in Curing Chronic Pain.

For more information on Dr. Cochran and his books, please visit www.understandingpain.com.


“Readers will find in these stories of people suffering from chronic painful illnesses a
compassionate and caring physician. Dr. Cochran, with years of experience and knowledge in clinical practice, explores beyond the usual and accepted treatments with remarkable results of healing.” --- Raymond Waggoner Jr., MD, Child, Adolescent, and Adult Psychiatry

“Dr. Cochran is literally at the end of the line for many people who suffer chronic pain
. . . . He is their last hope. Those who are able to see Dr. Cochran are indeed fortunate, as this book illustrates so well. He is a doctor who listens. I hope this book sells out many
times. It’s that good.” --- Anthony Trabue, MD, FACOG, Obstetrics/Gynecology

“I was near death when Dr. Cochran first saw me, and now I am planning my wedding. He
has [made] a drastic change in my life, and I support all his work especially with opiates
[in those with mental illness].” --- Cassidy, who suffers lupus and bipolar disorder

About the Author

A graduate of Vanderbilt University Medical School, Robert T. Cochran Jr., MD, completed his residency in internal medicine and neurology at the University of Texas and Duke University. In 1963, he founded his private medical practice, and over the course of many years has treated thousands of patients with chronic pain.

This experience, in conjunction with that gained as co-director of the Pain Center at Centennial Hospital (Nashville) in the 1990s, led Dr. Cochran to make ground-breaking links between pain and various psychiatric disorders. His first book, Understanding Chronic Pain, explored these relationships.

Dr. Cochran continues his active medical practice in Nashville, where he resides with his wife, Donna.

4.0 out of 5 stars New chapter for chronic pain? November 4, 2009
By Nurse Z
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is a very educated, well written book that looks at a different aspect for chronic pain patients. I would love to see some article that may have been published by this author. This is an in depth view in to the practice of a physician who is very caring and motivated in helping his patients try to find relief for their pain. There are only a handful of physicians with the heart and devotion left practicing in such a caring manner,since the insurance companies and the government keep reducing the reimbursements every year, but that is a different subject. Great look into the minds, hearts, and treatment of patients with chronic pain.

5.0 out of 5 stars Required Reading May 8, 2009
Format:Paperback
This book is a "must read" for anyone suffering from chronic pain and/or bipolar disorder or depression. For those who have lost hope of further recovery, you will find it again within the pages of this book. (You will want to buy two copies - one for yourself and one for your physician.) "Curing Chronic Pain" should be required reading for all physicians and psychiatrists.

5.0 out of 5 stars Must read books November 27, 2010
By Nizal7
Format:Paperback
I have found Dr. Cochran's books to be extremely helpful in understanding many different types of pain and what can lead to a person being in pain, for many different reasons. Our mind and body are so connected, working together to tell us with pain what may need to be addressed. The individual stories within the books help us to find ourselves and what may be causing our painful body. I find Dr. Cochran a safe place for help, because the Government has no understanding in why painful patients may need to take pain medications. The war on drugs has made a villain the very medication that is needed and works differently for people who have real pain issues. If you have pain and can not get relief, read Dr. Cochran's books. Healing can be found with understanding.

5.0 out of 5 stars Life changing July 28, 2013
By S.J.24
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This book is heartfelt and spot on. It will challenge and hopefully bring you, well, hope. If you or a loved one suffers chronic pain or bipolar depression this should be required reading. Doctors too need to be introduced and hopefully embracing of the techniques used in this and Dr. Cochran's next book.
Incredible. Heartfelt. Well worth reading. It just may save your life or a loved ones.

5.0 out of 5 stars Finally....a book I have been looking for! January 3, 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is a must-have resource for anyone who suffers chronic pain or knows of someone who does. I have researched for 6 years any resource that would help understand chronic pain. This has helped me & my loved ones gain a different perspective of what I live with on a day-to-day basis. Please include the prequel to this book "Understanding Chronic Pain". It was a tremendous help also.
