A component of many medical conditions, pain is complex. It is not just one thing—and the process of teasing out the one core issue at the root of the pain is challenging.
In the first half of Outsmart Your Pain!, Lisa Barr, MD, reveals how stress and pain can become a habit caused by poor posture, sleep habits, nutrition, and body awareness, among other sources. In the second half, she guides readers through eight steps to release pain, from rooting out the mental and emotional triggers that cause fear, and thus pain, to re-training mental habits, as well as recognizing physical postures that contribute to it.
Outsmart Your Pain! The Essential Guide to Overcoming Pain & Transforming Your Life offers information and innovative practices about effective non-opioid pain relief. With short chapters and easy-to-follow diagrams and illustrations, the book is a quick read and resource. Outsmart Your Pain! is available in all formats on Amazon.
