You know what chronic pain is like, but you may be surprised to find out what is actually going on, and how you can harness this to get better.The traditional ways of treating pain are not as effective as they could be. Yet they remain the predominant way in our society and healthcare system. We need to turn this on its head, focus on your needs and create a bespoke way forward according to the life you want to lead.Based upon the latest research, pain science and philosophy of chronic pain, this book will help you understand your symptoms and experiences before offering you a range of ways to reconnect with what matters and move forward.
