his text blends current mainstream understanding (such as research, and pathophysiology) of chronic pain and integrative treatment wisdom. It provides both mainstream and CAM practitioners a reference tool to provide good and effective information and clinical decision-making on treatment options for people suffering from chronic pain. The how and why pain is epidemic is discussed. The approach is on the symptoms of pain, and how pain is individually expressed rather than the diagnoses of pain. Diagnoses are often misidentified, misunderstood, or multiple terms exist for a similar or potentially the same condition. To avoid this, the text will instead talk about expressions of pain. Pain anatomy presents the physical underpinnings for the chemical/hormonal, neurological, and soft tissue/fibrotic tissue explanations of pain. In the book visuals and diagrams will help the reader understand the function and dysfunction of pain. The material is grounded in research, providing basic reasoning for the body-based and mind-body approaches as it pertains to the theoretical constructs.The pedagogy is introduced, outlining the relationship between CAM and allopathic healthcare, and patient-centered therapeutic approaches as the frame for clinical decision-making. A variety of movement modalities and mind-body approaches are discussed and each chapter will include: a. Theoretical approach to treating pain/how the approach addresses current pain theories b. Assessment techniques: interview questions, measurement tools and techniques c. Treatment plan, techniques, modalities d. Self-care approaches e. Re-evaluation, measure of progress f. Supporting literature

Managing Pain - General Practice: The Integrative Approach. One of the most common reasons for people presenting to a healthcare practitioner is the presence of pain. Taking an integrative approach to pain management is more, however, than adding in alternative or complementary treatments that merely provide another symptomatic approach to the patient’s treatment. Rather, integrative medicine means taking a holistic approach to the person’s experience of pain, assessing the relative contribution of all aspects of their pain, whether physical, psychological or spiritual, and applying the most appropriate treatment that evidence has demonstrated to be effective in the management of that aspect. Integrative pain management may therefore involve the judicious use of medications, stress reduction techniques, behavioural modification and re-examination of purpose and meaning. Any or all of these approaches may need to be considered as part of the prescription that best addresses the needs as well as the desires of the person in pain.
