Publisher’s Description: 

A Stanford University poll revealed that almost 1 in 5 American
adults have chronic pain. Written by a physician, this book includes information about how MBSR techniques interact with analgesic medications.

The authors modify Jon Kabat-Zinn's original mindfulness-based stress reduction (MBSR) program to create a new program they call mindfulness-based chronic pain management (MBCPM). This book provides a clear, class-by-class breakdown of the MBCPM program, which has evolved over the last five years of clinical use.Pain specialist Jackie Gardner-Nix and co-author Lucie Costin-Hall have modified Jon Kabat-Zinn's mindfulness-based stress reduction (MBSR) program to create a program they call mindfulness-based chronic pain management (MBCPM). They explain the science behind the mind's importance in managing pain, then describe their proven techniques to reduce chronic pain and suffering using mindfulness meditation exercises. Readers are asked to track factors that increase or reduce their pain, then begin with five-minute meditations. Movement meditations are included for those who find it difficult to sit still. 200 pp.
