Overview

ow in paperback, an empowering and revolutionary book by a medical doctor that recognizes what many women have long known-that women's pain is a uniquely female issue. Studies now demonstrate that women feel more pain, seek help more aggressively, and are more open to alternative treatments than men. Dr. Mark Young offers women the practical and complementary solutions that practitioners may have overlooked, addressing a complex array of strictly female symptoms and concerns-from childbirth and menstrual pain to fibromyalgia and osteoarthritis-that set women apart from men. Women and Pain is a groundbreaking book for women who endure chronic pain, but who have had no lasting relief from doctors who say their symptoms 'are in their head' or 'just a fact of life.'
