Publisher’s Description: 

The book takes an integrated approach to pain rehabilitation and combines pain science, rehabilitation and yoga with evidence-based approaches from respected contributors. They demonstrate how to integrate the concepts, philosophies and practices of yoga and pain science in working with pain clients.

An essential and often overlooked part of pain rehabilitation is listening to, working with, learning from, and validating the person in pains lived experience. This book focuses on how practitioners can apply patient-centered care and shared decision making in yoga therapy. The book expounds on the movement to a more partnership-based biopsychosocial-spiritual model of healthcare where the patient is an active participant, as opposed to a model where the healthcare provider is fixing the passive patient. It also explains how practitioners can address the entire human being in pain, and how to include the person as an expert for more effective and self-empowered care.
