A groundbreaking mind-body protocol to heal chronic pain, backed by new research.Chronic pain is an epidemic. Fifty million Americans struggle with back pain, headaches, or some other pain that resists all treatment. Desperate pain sufferers are told again and again that there is no cure for chronic pain.Alan Gordon, a psychotherapist and the founder of the Pain Psychology Center in Los Angeles, was in grad school when he started experiencing chronic pain and it completely derailed his life. He saw multiple doctors and received many diagnoses, but none of the medical treatments helped. Frustrated with conventional pain management, he developed Pain Reprocessing Therapy (PRT), a mind-body protocol that eliminated his own chronic pain and has transformed the lives of thousands of his patients.PRT is rooted in neuroscience, which has shown that while chronic pain feels like it’s coming from the body, in most cases it’s generated by misfiring pain circuits in the brain. PRT is a system of psychological techniques that rewires the brain to break out of the cycle of chronic pain.The University of Colorado-Boulder recently conducted a large randomized controlled study on PRT, and the results are remarkable. By the end of the study, the majority of patients were pain-free or nearly pain-free. What’s more, these dramatic changes held up over time. The Way Out brings PRT to readers. It combines accessible science with a concrete, step-by-step plan to teach sufferers how to heal their own chronic pain.
Ok-ish but your typical one-pager of real information drawn out into a book. Not a miracle cure either but interesting and worthwhile considering.
This Author really knows how to pack scientific information in a book that is joyful to read, motivates you for your healing and shows 1, a clear description what is going on in your body when having chronic pain. And 2, useful strategies to unlearn the brain this type of pain. He is, in my eyes the perfect author for this kind of book. It is very easy to read (even for some foreigner) and at the same time gives you hope and a good laugh every once in a while! Love it!
