World class pain management healthcare professionals have contributed chapters to PainTamers. From a detailed chapter on procedures to treat pain (including questions to ask the doctor,) to sex and chronic pain, how to manage pain flare-ups, managing medications, social securith disability and government resources, PainTamers is a complete read for anyone wanting to learn more.

 PainTamers will help the reader becomee informed, equipped and empowered to fight chronic pain.  Whether you are the person with pain, family or friend, healthcare provider or educator, PainTamers has the most current information necessary to learn to live gracefully with chronic pain.

Set realistic goals: Re-prioritize your day as pain increases. Be aware of realistic goals for the day and do not set them too high, so it becomes counterproductive to your pain management. Make a list then tear that list in half—as many times as you want. Accomplish only what is most important.
The rest will be there for when you feel better. Then feel good about what you accomplished despite the pain, no matter how small. Accept your limitations for today and be gentle with yourself. Life is a journey, not a marathon race. Enlist the help
of others for housework, shopping, yard care, etc. Be clear on what you can and cannot do so that others can work with you in the recovery process. Lower the expectations of yourself and others but remember lowering expectations is not a lowering
of your self-esteem.

Professional Reviews

Pain medicine is a relatively new field of medicine. Although easing pain has been an imperative in medical practice from the beginning of medical care we know very little about how to effectively treat pain. The last three decades has been close to an explosion of knowledge of the mechanisms, chemistry, and biology of pain but with a slow uptake in translating that knowledge to medical care. There have been some important advances in how to care for pain but the public and most medical practitioners are still unaware.

This state of affairs makes it very clear why this important anthology needs to be read. One of the important things we have recently learned about pain is that it is complex. There are many different kinds of pain and there are many different responses to the types of treatments. PainTamers collects the thoughts and perspectives of several people living with pain and several medical experts who practice different types of pain medicine. Pain is complex, as complex as the subject matter. Taken together, the patient stories and the perspectives of the multiple medical practitioners, PainTamers creates a complex weave that mirrors the challenge of understanding pain. You hear from doctors, scientists, psychologists, rehabilitation specialists, massage therapists, acupuncturists, and many patients and collectively, you begin to appreciate the challenges of living with pain and of helping people manage pain.
