Living a Healthy Life with Chronic Pain
Dr. Kate Lorig

Book & CD. Chronic pain includes many types of conditions from a variety of causes. Despite these differences, all readers of this book have one very important thing in common — you are living with pain every day. To help you discover strategies and skills that will make a difference, this book emphasises four concepts: Each person with chronic pain is unique. There is no one treatment or approach that is right for everybody; There are a number of things you can do to feel better. These things will not eliminate pain, but they will help you to better manage pain, and help you to become more active and more involved in life. With knowledge and experimentation, you are the best judge of which self-management tools and techniques are best for you. The responsibility for managing your chronic pain day-to-day rests with you, not anybody else. Many people can be of help to you — your family and friends, your health care team. But, in the end, the responsibility for self-management is yours. Acknowledging that overcoming chronic pain is a daily challenge, this book provides you with the self-management tools to help you meet that challenge. Includes a Moving Easy Program CD, a set of easy-to-follow exercises that can be performed at home.
