Yoga and Science in Pain Care: Treating the Person in Pain

yoga and science in pain careWe are delighted to bring you this unique and much needed book on an integrative approach to pain rehabilitation that combines pain science, rehabilitation and yoga with evidence-based approaches from respected contributors. We demonstrate how to integrate the concepts, philosophies and practices of yoga and pain science in working with people in pain.

An essential and often overlooked part of pain rehabilitation is listening to, validating, working with and learning from the person in pain’s lived experience. The book expounds on the movement to a more patient-valued, partnership-based biopsychosocial-spiritual model of healthcare where the person in pain is an active and empowered participant, as opposed to a model where the healthcare provider is ‘fixing’ the passive patient. It also demonstrates how practitioners can address all aspects of the person in pain.

Our hope is that you will read this book to gain a deeper appreciation and understanding of pain, people in pain, and how to help people living in pain.

We also hope that this book will help bring together yoga and healthcare professionals. There is value of blending science and yoga therapy in pain care – for the person in pain, for the health professional and for the yoga professional.
