Also included are a wealth of helpful new ideas on coping with pain flare-ups, staying active, accomplishing personal goals, and more.

Managing Pain Before It Manages You Reviews

'The single best book on pain available today. It will surely become a classic.' - Joan Borysenko, PhD, author of Minding the Body, Mending the Mind 'Dr. Caudill's book and program gave me back my life after I was involved in an automobile accident five years ago. The pain that became chronic was untreatable, and it felt as though my life was lost. Then my doctor referred me to Dr. Caudill's 10-week pain management program, which provided me with the tools to put my life back together. Gradually, I was able to return to work full time and manage the pain and stress on a daily basis.' - Nancy L. Hale, MEd, LMHC 'This is a truly special book. It is packed with important information and practical tips from one of the leading international authorities in the field.' - Francis J. Keefe, PhD, Duke University 'At last, a volume that is practical, prescriptive, and clearly written for use by people who suffer from chronic pain!...An outstanding volume that will set the standard.' - Dennis C. Turk, PhD, University of Pittsburgh Medical Center
