If you are one of the 50 million Americans who suffer from pain and have searched to no avail for a smart, safe, and, most of all, effective solution, you may find relief in Dr. Norman Marcus's Freedom from Pain. Adapted from Dr. Marcus's remarkable narcotics-free New York Pain Treatment Program at Lenox Hill Hospital, this book will teach you, in carefully graduated steps, how to surrender the attitudes that are holding you prisoner to pain and how to master the physical and mental techniques that can set you free -- techniques that have had an unprecedented success rate and will work with just about any type of chronic pain, including lower-back ailments, headaches, and arthritis. Dr. Marcus is both supportive and sympathetic, giving even the most severe cases reason for optimism, and his book is the next best thing to a visit to the Pain Treatment Program itself.
