THE CHRONIC PAIN MANAGEMENT SOURCEBOOK
A mandatory read for all aspects of pain management"
-- Gene Dedick, past regional director, American Chronic Pain Association
By definition, chronic pain is pain that lasts more than six months, and cannot be completely controlled by medical treatment. In many cases, much of the burden of managing chronic pain falls on the patient himself or herself.
The Chronic Pain Management Sourcebook, completely updated in 2020 by the original author, is a compassionate and comprehensive look at the management of chronic pain for men and women who suffer from chronic pain as well as their families.
Medical journalist David Drum's well-reviewed sourcebook looks at the causes of chronic pain, and suggests a number of practical ways to manage it, cope with it, and live with it. A useful and supportive resource, The Chronic Pain Management Sourcebook includes chapters on surgery and useful pharmacological drugs as well as a great many tips for managing chronic pain and practical strategies such as meditation, distraction, stress reduction, visualization, social support, hypnosis, specific dietary changes, exercise, new treatments such as electrocranial stimulation, stem cells, and more.
The Chronic Pain Management Sourcebook includes a comprehensive chapter on pain arising from cancer or cancer treatment, which is managed differently than chronic benign pain. The Chronic Pain Management Sourcebook also contains a comprehensive new resources section including links to helpful organizations, a glossary of medical terms you may encounter, and more.
