"Defeat Chronic Pain Now! is a wonderful work by two of the field's eminent researcher-clinicians. People with chronic pain often wonder about the causes of their pain, and what options they have for managing this pain. This book provides accurate and clear answers to these questions. Individuals with chronic pain will find this guide to be an invaluable source of practical information about what can be done to ease their pain and suffering - and what treatments to avoid that can make their problem worse. Clinicians and health care providers will also find the state-of-the-science information about the causes and treatments for chronic pain conditions very useful, especially if they are looking for ideas about how to communicate this information in ways that patients will understand. I urge patients and clinicians alike to obtain and then make full use of this valuable text." --Mark P. Jensen, Ph.D., Professor and Vice Chair for Research, Department of Rehabilitation Medicine, University of Washington School of Medicine "A book for chronic pain sufferers written by two savvy pain specialists that lays out a clear path for taking control of one's own health issues in spite of misinformation from many providers of health care. Chronic pain is a common and expensive disaster that afflicts both patients and society at large. Physicians do not learn enough about pain in their education and training; this book tells patients how to work their way around and through the health care they may be offered for chronic pain. The authors emphasize the role of the patient herself or himself in solving the problems of chronic pain. Two pain experts provide the reader with a path for negotiating the best possible care for chronic pain. Truly a multidisciplinary approach to the resolution of chronic pain problems. Best book of its type that I have come across in over 40 years of pain management." --John D. Loeser, M.D., Department of Neurological Surgery, University of Washington "Chronic pain is unique among all the medical afflictions that can plague mankind. It is often viewed as a symptom cannot yet be objectively measured, but its effects on a person can become life threatening if not well treated. In addition the patient must become part of the treatment team for ultimate success. Drs Galer and Argoff each have contributed significantly to the advancement of the field of pain management. They are both well know as clinicians and teachers. Their vast experience and insight is capsulated into this easy to read book that can serve as a reference source. With the authors insight, patients and their families will benefit a great deal from reading this book." --Edgar Ross, M.D., Director Pain Management Center, Brigham and Women's Hospital Drs Galer and Argoff bring a wealth of experience to the great benefit of people in pain or those who care about them. This clear and compelling text elucidates a new field within medicine that emphasizes quality of life through science and direct experience in the care of patients. The authors are recognized leaders who share this knowledge with anyone who is fortunate to read this book. Scott Fishman, M.D., author of The War on Pain, President of the American Pain Foundation, and Professor and Chief of Pain Medicine, University of California, Davis School of Medicine" "A book for chronic pain sufferers written by two savvy pain specialists that lays out a clear path for taking control of one s own health issues in spite of misinformation from many providers of health care.
