We all fear pain and we will do almost anything to avoid it. We take to our beds, swallow pills, even submit to surgery and think we are solving the problem. But what if everything you thought you knew about pain turned out to be wrong or only half the truth?

In The Meaning of Pain, renowned osteopath Nick Potter draws on insights from biology, evolution and social behaviour to present a radical new understanding of pain and why we feel it.

Although pain is unpleasant, it is essential - nature's way of alerting us to danger - and is often a sign that something is out of balance in our lives. Stress and anxiety corrode our health in hidden ways and, as Potter shows, understanding this is crucial to treating pain.

In this sage and enlightening book, drawing on 25 years of clinical experience and success stories from his consulting room, Potter presents a timely, compelling roadmap for wellbeing, showing us how to break the vicious cycle of stress, pain and anxiety before the damage is done.

Review:

'The man who taught me how to breathe,' Sir Elton John

'Nick Potter is an exceptional osteopath, and has an extraordinary ability to instantly know what I have been doing wrong physically to cause me pain and then alleviate it. I am certain that if I followed all his advice and did all the exercises he wants me to do I would never be in pain again. Unfortunately I am too lazy, which is why I'm booked in again with him next Thursday at 2pm!' Michael McIntyre

'Pain - whether chronic or transient - is an insidious threat to mental well-being and emotional stability. In this excellent, well informed and optimistic book, Nick Potter applies his extensive experience and expertise to helping readers understand the experience of suffering from pain, and shows them that there is a surprising amount they can do on their own to address and manage it. It is a pleasure to read.' Professor Robert Bor, Consultant Clinical & Aviation Psychologist, Royal Free Hospital

'Most medical adversity is short term. But chronic spinal pain, which is enduring and literally at the core of every movement, is for its millions of victims disheartening, disabling and disenfranchising of life. Nick Potter has distilled years of front line experience to provide an excellent resource that will equip his readers with an ability to regain control. Many I am sure will have cause to thank him.' Peter J HAMLYN MB BS, BSc, MD, FRCS, FISM Consultant Spinal and Neurological Surgeon

'With his easy, flowing prose, Nick makes the science of pain understandable, dispels the myths and emphasises always the importance of attending to the equilibrium of the individual, by recognising and dealing with stress in all its forms... A book that is written from the heart by someone who is truly passionate about his subject and cares tremendously for his patients.' Dr Sean White FRCA FIPP FFPMRCA

'Thoughtful and provocative... Nick Potter is a brilliant osteopath and diagnostician.' Gail Rebuck
