book | The Handbook for Pain
More than 12 million people in Germany suffer: they suffer from headaches or back pain, joint, nerve or other chronic pain. They often have a long history of suffering and an endless medical odyssey behind them - they have tried everything but nothing helped.
Now there is light at the end of the pain tunnel: the comprehensive guide from a respected medical team. Professor Thomas R. Tölle and Professor Christine Schiessl are among the leading pain experts in Germany and, together with twelve other high-ranking experts in their field, pass on their knowledge in this book: They describe diagnostic methods, therapy options and the latest research.
This self-help guide is easy to understand and uses specific cases to show what those affected and their families can do. He explains what exactly chronic pain is, where it comes from and why it doesn't eventually go away on its own. He clarifies that chronic pain is a disease in its own right, as opposed to acute pain, which is the body's warning sign and symptom of injury.
He addresses the two factors responsible for the persistence of chronic pain long after the actual injury or illness: the pain memory or a chronic illness. This book makes a promise: Everyone affected can experience relief - so that life can be the focus again and no longer the pain. What really helps: from medication to pain pacemakers to psychotherapy, art and movement therapy as well as acupuncture and Co. Plus: Eleven patients give an insight into their lives with pain and how they found ways out of it.
