As the title strong states: "Validation" is something many who suffer with chronic pain often don't get -- but need. People are tired of hearing that their pain might be "just in your head." For generations, those of us who deal with unrelenting pain on a daily basis have been glossed over, ignored, or flat misdiagnosed. Now a team of doctors has come along with a book that speaks directly to the individual whose pain dominates their lives. Here, in an easy-to-read and easy-to-understand format, are tried-and-true ways to get the attention you deserve for debilitating pain. Validate Your Pain! works with the reader and provides direction on how to take control of your own health care destiny, how to ask the right questions, and how to know when you are being ignored or unheard. Board certified in pain medicine and supported by decades of work with chronic pain patients, Drs. Chino and Davis bring their vast experience and concern to the pages of this eye-opening book. Suffer no more in silence. Understand the role physicians and insurance companies play in your treatment. Get the truth about pain medications and the unsubstantiated fear of addiction so many physicians have. Get the. information your need to maneuver through the healthcare minefields-- and get the help you deserve.

If you suffer from chronic pain, then chances are you have read one or more of the "pain management" books on the market. Even so, you have never read a book like Validate Your Pain! Exposing the Chronic Pain Cover-Up. Drs. Chino and Davis have boldly departed from business as usual for pain books. ...Validate Your Pain! is like talking with an old friend who also happens to be an expert in the field of chronic pain. ...Validate Your Pain! dares to take the position of patient advocate. As stated in the introduction, the goal of Validate Your Pain! is to "arm you with 'insider' iformation that will help you to maneuver through the healthcare mine field so that you do not become yet another victim of the abuse that is going on" while helping you take control of your pain. Validate Your Pain! achieves this goal and more. William W. Deardorf, Ph.D., ABPP
