A Text that Students Will Actually Use and Enjoy!

I am a PT educator who teaches the Integrative Pain Sciences course within our curriculum. This book is fantastic and ideal for PT/PTA students! Not only is the book affordable and within a student's budget, it has just the right amount of content and pages as to not overwhelm the learner but support learning. The way Adriaan and the other authors write is in an engaging, light-hearted, and often comical manner that draws the reader in helping them to build a strong foundation in pain neuroscience. They have a way to make complex topics easy to understand. This is a text your students will actually enjoy reading! Loaded with practical application, this is a must-have book for an aspiring PT/PTA who will be treating patients in pain (all types from acute to persistent in nature).
