Written in layman's terms, this detailed guide explains how pain is perceived; helps patients evaluate and organize information about their symptoms; explores alternative, pharmacological, and invasive treatments; and much more. The book helps patients understand the multifaceted nature of pain and the range of treatment options available, enabling them to communicate more effectively with doctors and other healthcare providers.
