Inside This Book (Learn More)
First Sentence
The link between pain and injury seems so obvious that it is widely believed that pain is always the result of physical damage and that the intensity of pain we feel is proportional to the severity of the injury. Read the first page

I have been suffering from chronic shoulder pain for over six months, and I am having surgery soon which will hopefully fix the problem. The pain is an agonising 8/10 and lasts all day, from the moment I wake up until I go back to sleep in the evening. This pain has deteriorated my quality of life in a variety of respects. Sadly the exact cause of the pain has mystified my consultant, but I'm confident it was caused by misusing the shoulder press machine at the gym. I have been prescribed tramadol to help manage the pain, and I sometimes use a TENS machine with limited success. I wanted to educate myself about chronic pain, since I had a very limited understanding of my condition. This text has helped develop my knowledge and offers some comfort - it reminds me that I am not the only sufferer, and in fact there are many people around the world able to cope with similar conditions. Pain has a huge impact on mental and physical well-being, so educate yourself on the causes, effects and possible treatments.
