webmd Dr. Abaci began his quest to radically change conventional chronic pain thinking and treatment after dealing with the agony of his second anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) tear. There is help for conquering chronic pain, without a life addicted to drugs, and hope for healing and long-term health. Understanding that commonly prescribed pain-killing medications can actually result in a heightened sensitivity to pain (not to mention addiction), Dr. Abaci focuses on developing alternative solutions to treating chronic pain by drawing on neuroscience research, evidence-based medicine, ancient Eastern spiritual traditions, stress management techniques, nutrition principles, exercise programs, art therapy, and real-life lessons.

Take Charge of Your Pain

abaci Chronic pain afflicts over fifty million Americans, and there is a good chance at least one member of every family will fall prey to it. With many years of experience, Dr. Abaci has developed innovative treatments that have helped thousands better their lives in dramatic ways-techniques he now offers in this book. Take Charge of Your Chronic Pain pairs the latest medical therapies with unconventional healing practices-such as tai chi, art therapy, guided exercises, and diet. It reveals groundbreaking information about how special tests like functional MRIs can now measure pain, as well as the startling truth about narcotic pain medications.

Take Charge of Your Chronic Pain is divided into three important parts-Truth, Think, and Dare!

Truth will help you learn to navigate the difference between what is understood and what is misunderstood in pain treatment. It is important for you to be able to tell the difference, because as you will see, there is a good chance the medical system you rely on to feel better will fall short.

Think brings to light key topics everyone with chronic pain should understand, including stress, how the brain deals with pain, the harmful effects of inactivity, and the mind/body/spirit connection.

Dare introduces the Seven Steps to an Extreme Makeover and delves into the many empowering things you can do to manage your pain and thrive.

Congratulations on starting your journey toward taking charge!
