  • Editorial Reviews
    “This second edition of a self-help guide to pain management provides steps to control pain as well as alternative means to control pain besides medications.
     
    The purpose is to provide the elderly a self-help resource to control pain. The chapters are easy to read and they break down potential sources and types of pain as well as the means to address pain.
     
    As the title states, this book is written specifically for older adults, but practitioners may benefit from having it in their library to share tools discussed in the book in a pain treatment program.
     
    The book discusses the common causes of pain in older adults and provides tools for pain self-assessment, which in turn provide information to practitioners for plan of treatment. Each chapter covers a different aspect of pain control and provides self assessment tools and guidelines. The easy-to-read chapters are broken down by subject with summaries and "homework" for each week of the 11-week program.
     
    In light of the rising opioid epidemic, this book may be a helpful resource for individuals who want to try alternative means to address chronic pain, from guided imagery to stretches and exercises. It would be helpful to many individuals fighting chronic pain.”
