A wonderful overview of conventional and alternative therapies for pain management. As a Chiropractor I have a copy of this book in my reception area for patients to review.
The Everything Guide to Integrative Pain Management is an extraordinary resource for anyone suffering from acute or chronic pain. Dr. Traci Stein, an inspired clinician, rigorous scientist, insightful researcher, and compassionate advocate for those in pain has written a comprehensive manual that defines pain, its physiology and management; reviews conventional and alternative methods for treating it; and critically examines a range of approaches, when they might be useful and when they deserve caution. She reviews the entire spectrum of treatments, from drugs to prayer, considers when each may be useful and when it might warrant caution, and offers the reader tools with which he or she can make informed choices about care.
