Your Headache Isn't All In Your Head

Sku: 8749

Learn how headache pain really works, how the brain and nervous system contribute to headaches, and how to alleviate and prevent future headaches. 

Your Headache Isn't All In Your Head: Neuroscience Education for Patients with Headache Pain is an important guide for patients who suffer from persistent or long-lasting headaches, translating the complex neuroscience of headache pain into language that's accessible to all. Studies show that people who understand how the brain and nervous system work together to create pain are much better off: they experience less pain, function better, have less fear and are more interested in healthy movement and exercise. This understanding is essential to recovery.
 
How do I get rid of my headache? Research shows that once you understand what's causing your pain, your nerves immediately begin to calm. Beyond education, you have many tools to help ease the pain; this helpful guide details what else you can do to prevent or relieve headaches.
 
Written by physical therapists Adriaan Louw and Ina Diener.

Excellent resource for headache sufferers

This booklets takes the complexity of headache pain and simplifies it into a concept that the average person can understand. When you are a headache sufferer, you are always asking yourself, "why am I in pain" and will go to great lengths to find answers to the question of why. I have done a lot of reading about headaches and this booklet has been the most beneficial resource I have come across. The measuring cup metaphor and illustrations paint a very clear picture of how the brain interrupts and reacts to headache pain. After reading this booklet, I feel like I have the knowledge along with helpful strategies to successfully manage my headaches when they do occur.
