Did you know that there’s a website focused entirely on dealing with pain? While looking for information on this idea of whole person treatment, referred to as bio-psycho-social care, I found the following book review on it. This review is about Stephen Colameco’s Chronic Pain: A Way Out. I have not read Colameco’s book, but was taken with the thorough way in which he looks at treatment for pain.
He obviously spends time focused on the more prevalent ways of dealing with pain, including medical treatment, physical therapy, and surgery. But most importantly I noted that he also includes psychological treatment and the need to look at what the patient is thinking. And I especially loved his last focal point, a focus on spirituality! All of which fit nicely with this week’s focus…
