The combination of the scientific, medical and spiritual dimensions of responding to chronic pain and the value of hope in living positively with such pain. It also contains a series of practical physiotherapy exercises that could assist the reader.
This kept occurring, this thinking of someone for whom the book would be great, and then when chatting with a colleague, he told me he had been reading The Pain Book when he realised it would be ideal for a friend...
Maybe the reason for this is that the book is easy to read, impeccably researched, simple but comprehensive and offers real knowledge and real answers. But also, it's because pain is a universal experience and whatever we go through in life, there is something in this book that we can relate to and which will make a difference.
The three authors are leaders in the field of pain management and put into practice everything they have written about in their pain clinic in northern Sydney.
Perhaps the most attractive thing about the book is that while it increases our knowledge about how pain works, it shows us skills and pathways within our reach that can help us break the control of pain. Things like exercise, relaxation, gratitude, acceptance, courage and hope.
If that sounds too good to be true, well, all I can suggest is that you read if for yourself. You'll be pleasantly surprised.
The opening paragraph gripped my attention and I never let go. It empathetically challenges pain sufferers to make small, manageable changes that will ultimately make their life significantly better. It encourages us to treat the 'pain', not just the injury, damage, ailment, etc. It also educates others about the cruel reality and daily struggles of someone living with chronic pain.
The Pain Book is simple, real, challenging and TRULY gives hope when it hurts.
