Product Description

Since Explain Pain is having its tenth birthday, David and Lorimer have decided to release a second edition. We didn't want to mess too much with the original edition - after all it has sold more than 50,000 copies worldwide. Explain Pain Second Edition looks and smells the same. What is different in the last 10 years is the increasing support for therapeutic neuroscience education from clinical trials-much of which using Explain Pain, educational science, neuroscience, plain logic, and the failure of drug therapy to manage much chronic pain. Over multiple coffees, custard tarts and pinots, Lorimer and David have subtly changed the language and updated the scientific content. Overall the second edition can be delivered with much more authority than the first. A ground-breaking concept in its content and presentation, Explain Pain aims to demystify the process of understanding and managing pain. It brings the body to life in a way that makes an interesting read for therapists and pain sufferers alike. All pain is real, and for many people it is a debilitating part of everyday life. It is now known that understanding more about why things hurt can actually help someone understand their pain and go about their daily life. Recent advances in fields such as neurophysiology, brain imaging, immunology, psychology and cellular biology have provided an explanatory platform from which to explore pain. In everyday language accompanied by quirky illustrations, Explain Pain discusses how pain responses are produced by the brain: how responses to injury from the autonomic motor and immune systems in your body contribute to pain, and why pain can persist after tissues have had plenty of time to heal. Explain Pain aims to give clinicians and people in pain the power to challenge pain and to consider new models for viewing what happens during pain. Once they have learnt about the processes involved they can follow a scientific route to recovery.

This book is incredible. It absolutely changed my whole relationship to me body. It in fact 'cured' my chronic back condition. of course it didn't cure it but after ready this book my back pain reduced by 60% and now I am almost as good as new!. But seriously why is this book SO EXPENSIVE. I keep telling friends to buy it and they want to but the price is too prohibitive.

Rather expensive, but well worth the money it is so simply to follow. Anyone who takes pain as a way of life this book makes the mind think differently. Chronic pain can become so tiring and after some time we think that there is no way out. I am not saying this book will take away your pain, but it will help you understand what is causing chronic pain.

This is a fascinating and educational book. It gives a better understanding of the origins of pain and helps you to see that there are ways to manage it. Very well explained and makes total sense although it might require a second read as there is a lot of information to absorb. I would recommend it especially to sufferers of chronic pain. It gives you hope.

I'm a first year physiotherapy student. This book has given me a huge head start in understanding the mechanism behind pain, especially chronic pain. It was a very easy read, but knowing some neurophysiology is certainly going to help.

It is certainly recommended to anyone working with patients in pain and anyone suffering from chronic pain.
