Chronic back and neck pain is a thorny issue that plagues millions living in today’s modern world and has the power to take over a person’s life—not just physically, but also psychologically, emotionally, and physiologically. The good news is that there are effective ways of dealing with chronic pain that allows patients to return to a productive life without undergoing unnecessary surgery. Dr. Jordan Fersel is a board-certified pain specialist who relies on his diverse professional experience to distinguish the differences between acute and chronic pain, scrutinize the accuracy of an MRI scan to diagnose pain, examine the architecture of the spine, explain nerve injuries, differentiate between the various types of arthritis, and offer potential treatment options. Through included case studies and illustrations, pain sufferers will learn there is hope for managing pain through proper diagnosis and a treatment plan tailored to treat individual needs. It’s Not All in Your Head shares guidance from a trusted physician that explores chronic back and neck pain, its sources, and the many treatment options available.



Many people suffer from bad backs...I am one of them. I have seen many doctors in regards to treatments and have been following the more natural path. With that said, I try to read any book I can that might shed some light on things that might be beneficial. This is one book that actually offered some new ideas, which was really refreshing.

A lot of doctors like to throw surgery out as an option, and while it can help many time it causes a myriad of other problems. Dr. Fersel lays out many different ideas in this book, and while reading it you should come away with some ideas that will help you with your type of back pain.

I recommend this to anyone who suffers from any kind of back or neck pain.
