Millions of us suffer from chronic pain. It can return at the slightest provocation and its cause is often a mystery to doctors. In this book, Kaplan argues that we've been thinking about disease all wrong. Through cutting-edge research and dramatic patient stories, the book reveals how chronic physical and emotional pain are linked. Dr Kaplan's groundbreaking discovery that disease is an accumulation of traumas over a lifetime - every injury, infection and emotional blow - suggests that current treatments for chronic pain and depression are ineffective. By focusing on long-term causes as well as symptoms, Kaplan has found hope for those locked into a lifetime of pain and suffering. His unified theory has created a new pathway to total recovery.
