This book provides an overview of pain mechanisms as currently understood, and details a variety of approaches to pain management used across a wide range of complementary disciplines. A final chapter integrates these body-based and mind-body approaches, and helps the clinician offer the most effective care for the patient. The first part of the book discusses pain symptoms and the ways in which pain is experienced by individual patients. This section deals with the anatomy and pathology of pain, and describes present views of what causes pain to occur and persist. Integrative care concepts are presented, emphasizing multi-disciplinary approaches to addressing pain. In the second part, expert contributors describe therapeutic approaches to addressing pain conditions and implementing self-care management options, specific to the various disciplines. When available, research supporting the evidence for these interventions is incorporated. In the last chapter, the editors model various care pathways based on these approaches to assist healthcare practitioners in deciding how to effectively co-manage pain, including guidance on when and where to refer.

The data analysis responded to the primary goal of the research and its objective by comparing conventional versus alternative, complementary, and integrative medicine for the treatment of chronic pain. The study also indicated the reasons that the participants preferred a particular method over the others. For example, as stated before according to physician A one participant preferred alternative medicine to conventional medicine because "the participant did not want to have an injection to his elbow, and acupuncture gave him an alternative answer to his problem." Technically a mixed study, the primary portion of the research was qualitative. The use of content analysis with quantitative design was used to summarize the counts and percentages of how many participants contributed to each qualitative theme. The quantitative portion was the health survey. The study did not focus on the structure of consciousness in human experiences. The study showed that participants preferred alternative, complementary, or integrative medicine to conventional medicine. The reason may link to the strong value attached by each culture and religious belief to the treatment type, and the confidence of participants have in their physicians. In general, 41.2% ( n= 7) were satisfied with integrative medicine for chronic pain or some combination with it, whereas 47.1% ( n = 8) were satisfied with alternative treatment only: 47.1% ( n = 8) used integrative medicine for chronic pain or some combination with it, whereas 29.4% ( n =5) used alternative treatment only. Thirteen of the 17 participants ( 76.5%) chose alternative medicine because it was good for the body, for personal preference, and because it was practical.

Pain is Not What it Seems contains a treasure trove of scientific references supporting an astonishingly simple and transformative path to healing and well-being. While conventional Western medicine tends to treat the body and mind as separate entities, scientific evidence proves that physical, spiritual, and psychological aspects of self can affect one another on a profound level. Pain Is Not What It Seems explains the science that tells us that only when these deeper spiritual and emotional issues are addressed can true healing from suffering and pain begin. After thirty years treating military and civilian patients with chronic and acute pain and associated disorders, Dr. Hickey has shared profound wisdom and insights of the “secrets” behind how to heal from intractable complex pain, which—although published in scientific journals and books—is not taught to most doctors nor found in standard wellness curriculums. Her astonishingly simple and transformative program provides an easy-to-follow path to healing from suffering and pain that reaffirms what those suffering realize intrinsically: they are a whole person and need to be treated as such.
