Overview

Dr. Ann Berger shows readers how to control their chronic pain through the pioneering and hugely successful approach that has made her one of the top pain specialists in America

An estimated 70 million Americans suffer from chronic pain, yet very few doctors know how to treat it. Ann Berger, MD, is determined to change all that. An acknowledged leader in the field of pain management and a breast cancer survivor, Dr. Berger writes with an empathy that is all too rare as she shares her groundbreaking approach to healing any kind of chronic pain.

In Healing Pain, Dr. Berger:

• helps readers better describe their pain to their doctors-improving diagnosis and treatment

• shows how self-help efforts and spirituality can make a powerful difference in pain control

• explains which prescription and over-the-counter medications relieve pain and how to take them

• reveals the important roles that complementary therapies-like imagery, hypnosis, and acupuncture-play in managing chronic pain

• shares stories based on hundreds of case histories of dramatic healing through unexpected routes

Dr. Berger believes that pain is a problem with a solution-if you know how to ask the right questions. Healing Pain is a compassionate guide to those often-difficult questions.

Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
Seventy million Americans suffer from chronic pain. In this trade paperback original, pain management specialist Dr. Ann Berger and freelance writer C. B. DeSwaan frame an empathetic, accessible primer on relieving this debilitating condition through a variety of therapeutic approaches. In addition to discussing regimens and medications, Healing Pain provides practical advice on how readers can best describe their specific pain to doctors. Topics covered include prescription and over-the-counter medications, as well as imagery, hypnosis, acupuncture, self-help, and spirituality.
Library Journal
Two people with the same disorder or complaint probably do not feel the same type or intensity of pain and don't respond the same way to treatment. Drawing on her years of experience as a medical oncologist specializing in pain management, Berger (chief, Pain and Palliative Care Ctr., National Insts. of Health) hopes to solve that problem with this important handbook to help all chronic pain sufferers, no matter their situation, get effective treatment. In Part 1, the author illuminates the different types of pain, how the body reacts to pain, and how to talk about pain to family and caregivers so they can understand a sufferer's experience. In Part 2, tools are provided to assist readers in controlling and managing pain, with coverage of spirituality, medication and surgery, and complementary medicine. The last chapter brings the information from the previous chapters together to create a personalized treatment plan. Presented in a conversational tone with many stories from Berger's patients, this book is an excellent resource and is recommended for all consumer health collections.-Marge Kars, Bronson Methodist Hosp., Kalamazoo, MI Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.
