Abstract:

"Approximately 100 million Americans suffer from chronic pain--and many of them use prescribed painkillers to treat it, a dangerous course that may lead to dependency, addiction, and, paradoxically, increased pain. Opioid overdoses kill more people than car accidents and cocaine and heroin addictions combined. The innovative program at the acclaimed Las Vegas Recovery Center, where Dr. Mel Pohl is the medical director, has helped thousands of chronic pain sufferers learn to thrive and reduce their pain's intensity without painkillers. Now, for the first time, The Pain Antidote shares this concrete program, which combines up-to-date research with state-of-the-art treatments and non-narcotic medications. The Pain Antidote offers tools and strategies--including a four-week jumpstart plan--to help anyone with chronic pain ease their suffering, restore their happiness, and live a rich, full life."--

"Because chronic pain may not have a clear physical cause, many of the 100 million Americans who suffer from chronic pain choose to use prescription painkillers--a dangerous treatment that may lead to addiction and dependency, and doesn't address the pain's underlying causes, which are rooted in the brain. With chronic pain, getting better requires a deep understanding of how physical pain can trigger intense emotions that, over time, drive the pain ever deeper. With the right approach, it is possible to recover from chronic pain rather than simply managing it with medication. The Pain Antidote is a science-based, practical guide for people seeking solutions to chronic pain, combining up-to-date research studies on the neurophysiology of opioid use with state-of-the art treatments and non-narcotic medications that help patients with chronic pain live rich and full lives. The book will help readers weigh the pros and cons of using opioid drugs, offering tools to assess the potential for addiction and the impact of the drugs on their daily functioning. With a thorough understanding of cutting edge concepts such as Neuroplasticity, the Fear-Avoidance Cycle, Secondary Gain, Hyperalgesia, and the Un-movement Syndrome, readers will understand for the first time what they can do to jump-start the healing process and restore balance in their lives"--
