After two surgeries, my surgeon said I will never run again. No one had answer until I found Beyond Pain. I am now not only running, but also playing football with my son,' Nalin, 38, cafe owner and father of two.
Even easy things like driving and hanging out with friends became difficult because of my shoulder. But after following the Beyond Pain program, my shoulder is stronger, I feel more confident, and now I can enjoy a night out despite my pain,' Sheena, 21, student..
'Ever since I injured my back at work, I have suffered from chronic pain and depression. I hadn't worked for some years, and had rarely socialised. Then, I found this book. I read the book, followed the program, and within weeks, I felt happier and healthier, which led me to find work. After years of suffering, there is hope again,' Sandra, 52, injured worker.
‘Beyond Pain offers fresh insights into what it is like to live with pain, and describes an array of strategies to enable a fully meaningful life despite pain. This book will be valuable not only to persons suffering from persistent pain (and their loved ones) but also to professionals seeking to understand pain coping.’ - Prof Francis J.
