One in five people experience chronic pain but for those with spinal cord injury, ongoing pain affects as many as two out of three people and many rate dealing with pain as one of the most difficult consequences of their injury.
The Spinal Cord Injury Pain Book is unique in providing the latest information on how pain works as well as addressing the specific pain challenges for people with spinal cord injury.
Its practical ‘toolbox’ offers the best possible answers to pain ranging from medication and new technology through to skills such as exercise, distraction, relaxation and meditation.
Chapters for health professionals and those who love someone living with pain assist in building a team for support and there are extensive lists of further reading and resources.
Written by some of Australia’s most experienced spinal cord injury pain experts—Philip Siddall, Rebecca McCabe, Robin Murray, Kathryn Nicholson Perry and Lyndall Katte—it also includes the personal stories and reflections of people living with spinal cord injury pain.
The Spinal Cord Injury Pain Book is a follow-up to The Pain Book by the same authors.
