FOR PEOPLE DEALING WITH CHRONIC PAIN, JUST GETTING THROUGH THE DAY CAN BE A TRIAL.
For many years, the only treatment has been opioids and other analgesics and a puzzling choice of self-help options. But there’s a way to reduce your suffering that isn’t focused on drugs or expensive pain management programs.
In The Language of Pain, Dr. Trevor Campbell provides practical tools for alleviating your agony. Based on years of experience, Dr. Campbell’s approach builds a solid foundation for success and targets the behaviors, beliefs, and attitudes that trigger the specific brain centers that generate pain as a continuous threat signal.
He offers clear recommendations for simple, effective actions to improve your quality of life and dramatically lessen the physical distress you endure every day.
At last, there is an accessible and durable evidence-based, non-pharmacological approach for reducing your pain and getting back to living!
“Dr Campbell has written a remarkable book that helps to fill a void. He draws on decades of experience in managing patients who have been referred to him, who are suffering from chronic pain, He notes how often solutions have been sought in the wrong places, and how many such patients seem stuck in a downward spiral.. The Language of Pain is suffused with Dr Campbell’s earnest desire to help these people With conviction, compassion, and an occasional touch of philosophy, he spells out the road to recovery, a road the is sometimes counter-intuitive, yet refreshingly simple, and is ultimately optimistic. I highly recommend The Language of Pain, both to those suffering from chronic pain and to their family physicians.”

“As a professional evidence-based medicine researcher with a knowledge of chronic pain, I feel that Dr. Campbell has provided an insightful and much needed work to address the many important issues that cannot easily be delivered and explained piecemeal over multiple clinical encounters. While the book is clearly written for patients, I predict that many family physicians will also derive significant benefit.”
