OPTP Adds New Shoulder Book to Neuroscience Series


OPTP and author Adriaan Louw have released the latest book in their patient education series. Your Nerves are Having Shoulder Surgery is a neuroscience education book that helps prepare patients for their shoulder surgery and reveals key strategies for the recovery process.

Your Nerves are Having Shoulder Surgery features memorable metaphors and unique illustrations to help explain neuroscience principles and allow for ease of understanding. It explains how nerves react before, during, and after the surgery, helping to provide patients with a sense of comfort in knowing what to expect.

In addition, the book reveals:

  • How the body’s nervous system is like an alarm system
  • How to turn down the sensitivity of that alarm system
  • How the brain and nervous system collaborate to produce pain
  • How to take control of nerves in order to lessen pain 
Like other books in the series, Your Nerves are Having Shoulder Surgery provides simple concepts that can be readily applied, helping patients lessen their pain and return to regular activities as quickly as possible.
 
The book is available as a single copy for patients as well as a 12-pack for clinicians and professional use. To learn more or purchase, visit the Your Nerves are Having Shoulder Surgery product page.
