Take Charge of Your Chronic Pain

Submitted By Candace Ford

More than 50 million Americans are intimately familiar with one of medicine's most frustrating challenges: chronic, relentless pain unresponsive to standard treatment.

Peter Abaci, MD, Medical Director and Co-Founder of the nationally recognized Bay Area Pain and Wellness Center in Los Gatos (BAPWC), and clinical instructor at Stanford Pain Clinic, personally knows chronic pain due to ACL (anterior cruciate ligament) tears. His journey with chronic pain catalyzed his quest to radically change conventional medicine's concepts of and treatments for chronic pain. Commonly prescribed pain killers can result in heightened sensitivity to pain, plus pose risk of dependency and addiction.

At a free program at the Milpitas Library, Dr. Abaci will describe alternative therapies derived from neuroscience research, evidence-based medicine, ancient Eastern spiritual traditions, stress management techniques, nutrition principles, exercise programs, art therapy, and real-life lessons which have proved effective for thousands of patients.

Dr. Abaci will also present pain management techniques from his comprehensive handbook for chronic pain patients, "Take Charge of Your Chronic Pain: The Latest Research, Cutting-Edge Tools, and Alternative Treatments for Feeling Better." His book will be available for sale after his presentation ($16.95).
