The Explain Pain Handbook: Protectometer


David Butler and Lorimer Moseley

“The Explain Pain Handbook: Protectometer represents the next step in the Explain Pain Revolution… the Handbook represents the most up to date thinking… from Moseley and Butler. The Handbook distils the latest in neuroimmune pain science into an easily accessible book for patients and introduces the ‘Protectometer’ – a ground breaking pain treatment tool.”

Explain Pain 2nd edition

David Butler and Lorimer Moseley

Explain Pain 2

“All pain is real, and for many people it is a debilitating part of everyday life. In a world where 1 in 5 of us experience ongoing pain and where there is increasing evidence for the failure of synthetic drugs, take heart: help is at hand. It is now known that understanding more about why things hurt can actually help treat pain.

In everyday language accompanied by quirky illustrations, Explain Pain Second Edition discusses how pain responses are produced by the brain, how responses to injury from the autonomic motor and immune systems in your body contribute to pain, and why pain can persist after tissues have had plenty of time to heal.”

Painful Yarns

by Lorimer Moseley

A delightfully entertaining collection of stories, “written by Oxford University Fellow and Pain Scientist, Dr GL Moseley, provides an entertaining and informative way to understand modern pain biology. Painful Yarns coverDescribed by critics as ‘a gem’ and by clinicians as ‘entertaining and educative’, Painful Yarns is a unique book. The stories, some of his (Lorimer Moseley’s) travels in outback Australia, some of the experiences growing up, are great yarns. At the end of each story, there is a section “so what has this got to do with pain?” in which Lorimer uses the story as a metaphor for some aspect of pain biology. The level of the pain education is appropriate for patients and health professionals. The entertainment is good for everyone. You don’t have to be interested in pain to get something from this book and a laugh or two.”
