Explain PainBook - 2016
All pain is real. And for many people it is a debilitating part of everyday life. It is now known that understanding more about why things hurt can actually help people to overcome their pain. Recent advances in fields such as neurophysiology, brain imaging, immunology, psychology and cellular biology have provided an explanatory platform from which to explore pain. This book discusses how pain responses are produced by the brain; how responses to injury from the autonomic motor and immune systems in your body contribute to pain, and why pain can persist after tissues have had plenty of time to heal. This book also aims to give clinicians and people in pain the power to challenge pain and to consider new models for viewing what happens during pain. Once they have learned about the processes involved they can follow a scientific route to recovery.--Publisher description.
