Book for Patients With Chronic Pain

Patients with complex regional pain syndrome (CRPS) now have a new tool to begin a path to recovery. Why Are My Nerves So Sensitive? is written by three physical therapists affiliated with the International Spine & Pain Institute in Story City, IA: Adriaan Louw, PT, PhD, CSMT; Colleen Louw, PT, MEd, CSMT; and Kory Zimney, PT, DPT, CSMT. Using images, metaphors, and clear, approachable language, the book starts by teaching patients with CRPS that their chronic pain is more likely due to an extra-sensitive nervous system than to injured tissues, which may be why many tissue-based treatments fall short.
