Imagine an orchestra in your brain. It plays all kinds of harmonious melodies, then pain comes along and the different sections of the orchestra are reduced to a few pain tunes. All pain is real. And for many people it is a debilitating part of everyday life. It is now known that understanding more about why things hurt can actually help people to overcome their pain. Recent advances in fields such as neurophysiology, brain imaging, immunology, psychology and cellular biology have provided an explanatory platform from which to explore pain. In everyday language accompanied by quirky illustrations, Explain Pain discusses how pain responses are produced by the brain: how responses to injury from the autonomic motor and immune systems in your body contribute to pain, and why pain can persist after tissues have had plenty of time to heal. Explain Pain aims to give clinicians and people in pain the power to challenge pain and to consider new models for viewing what happens during pain. Once they have learnt about the processes involved they can follow a scientific route to recovery. The Authors: Dr Lorimer Moseley is Professor of Clinical Neurosciences and the Inaugural Chair in Physiotherapy at the University of South Australia, Adelaide, where he leads research groups at Body in Mind as well as with Neuroscience Research Australia in Sydney. Dr David Butler is an international freelance educator, author and director of the Neuro Orthopaedic Institute, based in Adelaide, Australia. Both authors continue to publish and present widely.

Brain Inflammation in Chronic Pain, Migraine and Fibromyalgia

This book solves the mysteries of chronic pain disorders such as migraine and fibromyalgia by explaining that the "central sensitization" which makes the brain more sensitive to main signals is actually caused by inflammation within the brain. By understanding the 3 main components of brain inflammation -- pain, inflammation, and mitochondrial dysfunction -- patients and doctors are able to understand and then treat these painful conditions with greater success; with this knowledge patients and doctors can implement the effective and successful treatment protocol, making customizations as needed per individual patient's unique profile/pattern. This version was previously published as Pain Revolution (full color), excerpted from Chapter 5 of "Inflammation Mastery, 4th Edition" also published as a two-volume set as "Textbook of Clinical Nutrition and Functional Medicine, Vol. 2: Protocols for Common Inflammatory Disorders." The updated cover image emphasizes the importance of the brain inflammation that underlies the "central sensitization" which makes the brain more sensitive to pain. PURPOSE & AUDIENCE: This book is written to provide essential information to doctors and patients dealing with chronic pain generally, migraine and fibromyalgia specifically. The information is also relevant for cluster headache, myofascial pain syndrome, and complex regional pain syndrome. With hundreds of citations to the biomedical research literature, this book provides unique insights into the causes of and solutions for migraine and fibromyalgia as prototypic pain disorders chiefly characterized by central sensitization, glial activation, and mitochondrial dysfunction. Clinicians and patients alike will gain insights that are immediately applicable for the treatment of these conditions. Importantly, the focus of Dr Vasquez's Functional Inflammology Protocol is to skillfully address -in a structured manner- the underlying causes of pain and inflammation, not simply to alleviate pain/inflammation via drug dependency. This book details the pathophysiology and essential treatment components; additional explanations and updates are provided via video lectures and tutorials. DIGITAL: Ebook version will be published in January 2016. ABOUT THIS BOOK: This book is an excerpt from Chapter 5 of Dr Vasquez's most recent 1,200-page textbook, Inflammation Mastery, 4th Edition (2016). The information in this book has been developed over many years starting from Dr Vasquez's teaching notes in Orthopedics and Rheumatology in 2000 and 2001, then in Integrative Orthopedics (2004, 2012), Musculoskeletal Pain: Expanded Clinical Strategies (Institute for Functional Medicine, 2008), Functional Medicine Rheumatology (2014), and Human Microbiome and Dysbiosis in Clinical Disease (2015).

"Master Your Pain" is a comprehensive workbook for the person with chronic pain. It teaches powerful techniques rooted in brain/body science to help reduce pain and change what it is like to live with chronic pain. Written from personal and professional expertise with chronic pain, "Master Your Pain" compassionately empowers the reader with knowledge about pain and introduces neurobiological concepts, translating these into practical, easy-to-use techniques that address the destructive impact of persistent pain. The approaches used in this workbook are validating, non-judgmental, and can be life changing. It is not a "one size fits all" method, instead "Master Your Pain" aims to help individualize pain mastery, encouraging skepticism and systematic discovery of the utility of each skill for each person suffering with chronic pain. WHAT THEY'RE SAYING: ""Master Your Pain" insightfully creates a bridge between psychology and biology. It goes beyond what any other comparable pain book currently offers. She brilliantly delivers new tools to chronic pain patients." - JP Garofalo, PhD, Associate Professor of Psychology, Washington State University ""Master Your Pain" provides straight-forward approaches to learning to manage, cope with, and even master chronic pain. She provides a broad spectrum of easy-to-implement pain management tools; from breath-work, visualization and relaxation, to understanding how to manage daily and social life, including nutrition and interactions with your medical practitioners. At the root of all Dr. Fancher's recommendations is an understanding of the latest research on chronic pain and what has been proven to work. She is able to educate the reader throughout the book so that the person experiencing persistent pain can gain an accurate understanding of what is physiologically happening to the brain and nervous system and how this contributes to and even exacerbates the pain experience." - Allison Suran, PT, GCFP, Founder Healing Bridge Physical Therapy "Dr. Fancher, as someone who deals personally with chronic pain and as a pain psychologist, speaks with an understanding no other expert can match. I highly recommend "Master Your Pain" to all my patients and for anyone with chronic pain." - Ginevra Liptan, MD, Medical Director, The Frida Center for Fibromyalgia "The book gives great insight into the variety of techniques that can make a difference, shows how personal responsibility and work is essential and then gives clear guidance about how to do the work in a clear and effective manner. I believe this book will become an essential tool for any effective pain management programs as well as being an essential resource for any individual wanting to determine how to not let chronic pain control or limit their lives." - Robert Djergaian, MD, Medical Director, Banner Good Samaritan Rehabilitation Institute "My role as a pain management specialist became infinitely more fulfilling and effective when I met my colleague and friend, Dr Jill Fancher, to whom I hope all my patients have the benefit of learning from. I am so excited to have her workbook Master Your Pain as a resource my patients can read, use, experience and learn from as they move through their personal journey we call 'chronic pain'." - Sandra Hadenfeld, ARNP, Pain Management Specialist, Peace Health Southwest Interventional Pain Clinic
