Can you really cure chronic pain without drugs, surgery or therapy? Surprisingly often the answer is Yes. While chronic pain can have a physical cause, this book, written by a leading UK Physiotherapist and chronic pain specialist, reveals how very real, and even debilitating pain, can frequently be caused by our brain in response to repressed emotions as a result of current and even past experiences. This process is at the root of many common complaints, including back pain, sciatica, migraines, fibromyalgia, repetitive strain injuries, digestive disorders and many medically unexplained symptoms. This self-empowering book explains research findings, describes dozens of case studies and provides practical tools to help you identify the cause of your pain and puts you on the path that leads to relief once and for all.
Georgie Oldfield Bio
Georgie Oldfield MCSP is a UK based Physiotherapist and founder of SIRPATM (Stress Illness Recovery Practitioners Association). Her approach has evolved from the pioneering work of New York Professor, John E. Sarno MD, who developed the concept of TMS (Tension Myoneural Syndrome) in the 1970s. From her clinics in Yorkshire and London she has enabled hundreds of people living with chronic pain regain their zest for life while becoming active and pain free. Apart from her clinical work Georgie gives talks and writes widely about her work and in 2010 developed the first course worldwide to train health professionals interested in integrating the SIRPA approach and the concept on which it is based within their own work.
