Chronic pain is a huge problem. It is estimated that more than one-fifth of Americans live with pain. In turn, many people struggle to manage their pain; they report that it affects nearly every aspect of their lives, and that they feel held captive by it.
Nowadays, it is recommended that treatments for chronic pain no longer rely on medication alone, and this book offers the first relatable, easy-to-understand title on the non-medical aspects of pain management.
Master Your Chronic Pain
Through Master Your Chronic Pain, readers will be able to take control of their conditions. The interventions and techniques detailed have consistently helped to improve outcomes and reduce people’s reliance on medication – leading to fuller, more enjoyable lives once more.
The book uses principles from Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) which has been established as a highly effective therapeutic approach in the management of chronic pain.
Understanding Chronic Pain
Through this practical book, readers will learn to understand the nature of chronic pain to manage it better; appraise the life values and motivations that underpin a person’s journey away from pain’s control; and boost energy levels and zest for life by eating smarter, sleeping better, and becoming more active.
Subsequently, the book examines how readers can manage the negative inner voices that constrain the life people desire; become less rigid in thinking, and grow their self-confidence; embrace the benefits of mindfulness to combat persistent pain’s obstacles; and handle stress, anxiety, and low mood to develop a life of increased independence and fulfilment.
