A new book available through OPTP, Minneapolis, examines some of the potential misconceptions regarding back pain. Everyone Has Back Pain: Neuroscience Education for Patients with Back Pain is a patient book authored by neuroscience researcher and physical therapist Adriaan Louw, along with co-authors Timothy Flynn and Emilio Puentedura.

The book is designed to provide patients with simple strategies for lessening back pain. It features an easy-to-read format, illustrations, and demonstrates how patients can calm their nerves to reduce pain and regain control of their lives. According to a company news release, the book is part of a series from Louw made to help patients understand why they experience pain and learn how to address it.

The release notes that the books are based upon clinical research that indicates patients will feel less pain, have less fear, move better, exercise longer, and show more interest in therapy when they are taught what pain actually is and how it works in the body.

Other topics included in the series include knee pain, pelvic pain, headaches, and more.
