Publisher's Summary

Whatever the cause of your pain - arthritis, backache or migraine - this book is for you. Pain can dominate your life and leave you exhausted and depressed. If pain restricts your movement and keeps you awake at night, it holds you back from getting involved in all that life has to offer. Step by step, this guide can help you to build your strength, recover your mobility and control your pain. By understanding chronic pain and using these practical suggestions for coping, you can improve your confidence, and lead a more mobile, active life. 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.

Straightforward sound advice

This book has invaluable advice about handling chronic pain. It has a couple chapters about exersices, nutrition, and meditation but the meat of the book is about how to break out of the depressing cycle of turning inward during pain and not moving over to a new cycle of moving even though it hurts and interacting with life even though you feel alone. I can't say it enough, this is a great book. I particularly like the part about dealing with a setback. If I have an extreme day of pain i can listen to that section and immediately be recentered on hope and recovery.

Helpful view, not U.S. based, resources are U.K.

I enjoyed this book but kept wishing the U.S. had places akin to his U.K. references. In the U.S. my pockets were drained too quickly to find lasting relief. Searching for a new livelihood due to painful arms and hands. When I find the new livelihood, I'll write a book about it (well dictate a book ;)

Coping Successfully with pain

So many of us suffer from pain. The younger amongst us may have an accident or illness; as we age it is just getting older that means our joints creak and do not work the way we were used to. The advice, experience and techniques in this valuable book go a long way to help anyone suffering unwanted pain (and who wants pain?) Well read and something one wants to have to hand.

It's not all in the mind

It helps when someone writes from experience. This book cannot solve all your pain problems and you need to make some effort to reap the benefits, but it's well worth listening to the suggestions and giving them a really good go.
You have to be prepared to practice but the alternative is just to endure pain, this gives you some really useful tools to cope - even fight back a bit if that's your approach!
For just a few dollars it's definitely value for money.
