Many conditions that cause chronic pain cannot be cured, or the process of treatment is a long one. This title does not focus on a cure, rather on managing the pain to allow the patient to become more active and to improve the quality of life.
From the Author
Neville Shone was an active man until a spinal disease rendered him almost immobile and in constant pain. Here, he describes the techniques of pain management which enabled him to regain his mobility. He is also the author of Cancer - A Family Affair (1995).See all Product description

I'm not even halfway through this book and it's been more helpful than any consultant, doctor, physio, chiropractor, alternative therapist or psychologist I've seen, and I've seen a lot.
Reading the first few chapters felt like I was reading specifically about my life. I already feel more positive and hopeful about what the future may hold.
I'm not able to do the pain management course at the hospital (they recommended this book) because my mobility is too restricted and my pain to widespread. I'm hoping with the help of this book I will be able to get myself mobile enough to do the course.
A definite read for anyone who suffers chronic pain. I also think it would be helpful for family and friends to help them better understand the condition and the frustration, anger, hopelessness, guilt and all the other goodies that go with it. I've already ordered my mum a copy.
UPDATE Oct 2018
I DID get mobile enough to attend the Pain Management Programme which has changed my life. I still live with chronic pain and a disability but my coping mechanisms are much more robust and it doesn't have a stranglehold on my life the way it used to. This book was the start of my recovery.
I urge anyone struggling from chronic pain with a progressive or incurable condition to ask their GP for a referral into a Pain Management Programme. It's the hardest thing I've ever done but I have a life again.
I have been suffering abdominal pain following a gall bladder operation and have struggled to manage this pain with medication due to side effects.
My pain has not gone and I do not expect that however I have found some pointers and suggestions in the book have helped ease the pain.
Worth a read if you have tried all other avenues.
This book has really helped me a lot as I suffer with a long term pain condition and some of the exercises in this book helped me and also it helped my family understand what I'm going through and to come to terms with my condition from another viewpoint.
