This is an electronic copy of Explain Pain, now available for download. All pain is real, and for many people it is a debilitating part of everyday life. It is now known that understanding more about why things hurt can actually help someone understand their pain and go about their daily life. Recent advances in fields such as neurophysiology, brain imaging, immunology, psychology and cellular biology have provided an explanatory platform from which to explore pain.
Ongoing pain is now the most costly health problem facing the planet. With the combined yearly cost of treatment and loss of productivity measured in the hundreds of billions of dollars and rising, pain is more costly than heart disease, diabetes and cancer. But the personal cost of chronic pain can be even worse because it can be so distressing, so disabling and so persistent that it stops you from doing the things you want to do — the things that give your life meaning. However, over the last 20 years a new, powerful and scientific treatment has emerged that has been nothing less than a revolution. There are no pills, no electronic gadgets, no bad side effects, and most importantly, you can do it yourself. The Explain Pain Revolution is all about understanding pain — understanding that many things, often surprising things can, and do, contribute to pain, and what to do about these. The Explain Pain Handbook: Protectometer is the latest step in the Explain Pain Revolution from the authors who really started the revolution over a decade ago with the original and best selling book Explain Pain.

Explain Pain Preview
This is a fantastic book to help people understand the terribly complex subject of chronic pain. I hate that the Kindle version prompted such poor ratings, because the actual content of the book is excellent. I have the print version. Refer to reviews of the original version, most of which are 5-star ratings. This book is incredibly helpful. In addition to increIDg my own knowledge, this book also provides great examples for explaining the subject to others.
The Explain Pain Handbook: Protectometer. Moseley, , D. If you are reading this review, you have likely already heard of the book because it has been well promoted by the successful marketing force that is the Noigroup. As the title describes, the book is meant to be a workbook that allows individuals to better understand their chronic pain and to take action to manage it and move forward successfully. In this manner, the book presents the latest evidence: that the pain experience is individual, is constructed in the brain, and can be changed. As well, the book's content is supported by consistent evidence that individualized self-management and pain science education are basic to the rehabilitation management of chronic pain. The workbook also follows the principles of adult learning.
