Patients, caregivers, and any library catering them will find Understanding Pain offers key insights into neurology often limited to health professionals--and enables patients to both understand and consider options in pain management."--The Midwest Book Review

"Among the unique characteristics of the book are the suggestions on how to give a complete pain history to a healthcare provider and the emphasis on the importance of a multidisciplinary approach...The glossary is comprehensive and the list of resources is excellent ... The book meets a need for many patients and families struggling to deal with this very common condition."--Doody's Reviews

"The book delivers a reassuring message for people experiencing pain... [and] provides strategies for patients to communicate the nature of their pain to their providers... Well-researched chapters cover medications, alternative therapies, surgery, special issues of pain in children and the elderly, and a resource guide." --CAPHIS Consumer Connections (CAPHIS Consumer Connections 20100503)

Format: Paperback
Any suffering from chronic pain need this primer, which surveys different treatments for acute and chronic pain, provides forms for tracking conditions, and explores new findings on how the brain processes pain signals. Patients, caregivers, and any library catering to them will find UNDERSTANDING PAIN: WHAT IT IS, WHY IT HAPPENS, AND HOW IT'S MANAGED offers key insights into neurology often limited to health professionals - and enables patients to both understand and consider options in pain management. The discussions are technical, but include enough explanation to make them accessible to lay readers.
