Paul Biegler, a science journalist and former doctor who has been on his own pain journey, investigates the true source of chronic pain and emerging therapies including cognitive therapy and graded exercise exposure, that take advantage of neuroplasticity to rewire the brain and end suffering. As he knows only too well, pain isn’t all in a person’s head. Pain is real, but its meaning is often misunderstood. Through conversations with scientists, doctors, and people who have overcome chronic pain, Biegler shines a light on rigorous new studies and emotional personal stories that are changing the way we understand and treat pain. Most importantly, he shows how to take control over persistent pain and truly heal.
