Overview

Every Body's Guide to Everyday Pain: "It Never Used to Hurt When I...?!" by Ya-Ling J Liou, Sandy Johnson

For anyone who has found themselves thinking: “But it never used to hurt when I…!” Every Body’s Guide to Everyday Pain is written for them. This book sheds light on three burning questions: Why does it hurt? How do I make it stop? and How do I keep it from happening again?

In this first of a three-volume series, Every Body’s Guide to Everyday Pain is not about chronic, debilitating pain. Instead, it addresses the familiar bouts of everyday aches and pains that can easily lead to a lifetime of discomfort. Volume One – Put Out the Fire guides readers through an intuitive exploration of the why, what and how of everyday pain. Author Ya-Ling Liou, a seasoned chiropractic physician and teacher, turns complicated anatomical processes into easily understood concepts. Cartoon-style illustrations and easily grasped analogies describe clearly the intrinsic nature of the body’s mechanical, chemical and emotional causes of pain.

Comparing the pain caused by inflammation to “the body on fire,” readers are guided through the processes of “cooling the fire” and “fire-proofing the body.” Uncovering new ways to pay attention to the body, Liou describes exactly what to do about “nuisance” pain before it turns into a five-alarm fire.

Every Body’s Guide to Everyday Pain shows readers how to tap into the body’s innate common sense, and spells out in everyday language what they need to know to become their own experts in pinpointing and alleviating their nagging pain. Best of all, readers will find new hope knowing that they can return to a pain-free life.

Anonymous More than 1 year ago
I found this book very effective even thought I thought it did not fully apply to me. I have knee osteoarthritis so I do have a "chronic" condition which sometimes flares up rather then pain due to injury which I thought was the focus of the book. I wanted to read this book because I had the question why if inflammation is part of the body's healing process why is it bad or you. The book answered this question. Also the book did end encouraging me to do certain steps to take down the inflammation(one knee is still slightly swollen). I don't feel able to comment on the illustrations as I don't think my Nook displays pictures to their advantage. I received a free copy if this book in exchange for a honest review.
