Understanding Major Pains

by A Lal

Pain is an all pervasive reality of life-something that we all experience but handle differently. Managing pain especially chronic pain is not making it disappear altogether-rather keeping it under control. This book covers a number of most common crippling pains and aches like headache, migraine, angina, arthritis, back pain and a host of abdominal pains together with their pathogenesis, prevention and treatment options. Many examples of pathological physiology are provided to illustrate the nature of body system failure to understand the pain process. Treating pain is a two-way street. A bipolar communication between the doctor and his patient is essential to get the mostly effective and safe medical treatment. This book tells that a patient must communicate fully with his doctor about every aspect of pain, because it is the patient alone who knows what his pain is like.
