Practical advice for leading a more active life. What is pain? Pain is a universal experience. We all feel it, whether it's the sharp, stabbing pain of a twisted ankle of the deep, throbbing pain of a headache that won't quit. Pain knows no age limit - it affects us from infancy through old age. When pain persists beyond the time expected for an injury to heal or an illness to end, it can become a chronic condition. No longer is the pain viewed as just the symptom of another disease, but as illness unto itself. This type of pain is commonly referred to as chronic pain. This easy-to-understand book provides what you need to know to take charge of chronic pain and live a more active, productive and comfortable life. It details: Causes of chronic pain Cycles of chronic pain Exercises that build strength and improve movement Comprehensive glossary Latest on pain medications Complementary and alternative therapies Getting the support you need New techniques for pain treatment Setting SMART goals The role of spirituality Tips on getting a good night's sleep Controlling your emotions
