Summary
Because chronic pain may not have a clear physical cause, many of the 100 million Americans who suffer from chronic pain choose to use prescription painkillers--a dangerous treatment that may lead to addiction and dependency, and doesn't address the pain's underlying causes, which are rooted in the brain. With chronic pain, getting better requires a deep understanding of how physical pain can trigger intense emotions that, over time, drive the pain ever deeper. With the right approach, it is possible to recover from chronic pain rather than simply managing it with medication. The Pain Antidote is a science-based, practical guide for people seeking solutions to chronic pain, combining up-to-date research studies on the neurophysiology of opioid use with state-of-the art treatments and non-narcotic medications that help patients with chronic pain live rich and full lives. The book will help readers weigh the pros and cons of using opioid drugs, offering tools to assess the potential for addiction and the impact of the drugs on their daily functioning
