Dustjacket Books Publishes “Pacing For Pain” On Smashwords and Kindle
Exmouth UK independent publisher Dustjacket Books is a publisher in the healthcare field, concentrating on physiotherapy and pain management. Pacing For Pain explains the reasons for repeated pain problems and suggests a way of managing this well.
Chronic pain is very common. Half of all adults suffer from either persistent (long term) or recurrent (repeated) pain of some kind. These are both chronic pain and can vary from the severely disabling pain of cancer or arthritis to the mild pain of an old injury to a joint or ligament.
Doctors can diagnose some pains and the treatments are clear. But many pains have no diagnosis and no treatment. This includes lower back pain and neck pain, migraines, headaches and many abdominal pains.
Pacing is a technique of pain management which allows people to start an activity or increase the amount of an activity they can perform without suffering a significant increase in their pain.
The author has worked with a pain management team for over ten years and seen over a thousand patient suffering from chronic pain problems. The difficulty of managing activities, doing things, has been a major focus of chronic pain sufferers.
Chronic pain sufferers typically:
• Fall into an overactivity and underactivity cycle
• Avoid activities which cause pain
• Become more and more disabled with time
In “Pacing For Pain” author Jonathan Blood Smyth explains the problems of pain in activity and suggests a plan for increasing ability over time, thus regaining control over an important aspect of life.
