Synopsis:
People with chronic pain want relief. Dr. Anthony H. Guarino, a pain management specialist, has created an accessible overview of back pain and the current available medical treatments. Dr. Guarino stresses the importance of patient participation to combat chronic pain. With the wealth of information found in this book, patients can successfully manage their own pain beyond the doctor's office. Dr. Guarino explains the range of medical options, discusses proven therapies, and coaches patients on what they themselves can do to achieve results. He also offers helpful advice for dealing with the psychological effects of chronic pain and for navigating complicated insurance and disability plans. With chapters on medications, exercise, injections, surgery, psychological interventions, and alternative treatments, Get Your Lower Back Pain under Control -- and Get on with Life is an invaluable resource for those who suffer from chronic back pain. As Dr. Guarino encourages his own patients, "Master your pain. Reclaim your life!"
