Book Description

Jan. 6 2005

A nationally recognized leader in the field of pediatric pain management, Dr. Lonnie K. Zeltzer offers an invaluable guide to control the pain that plagues your child, from headaches to arthritis, irritable bowel syndrome, fibromyalgia, and more.

Drawing on more than 30 years of study and combining modern medicine with complementary methods such as hypnotherapy, yoga, acupuncture, and biofeedback, Dr. Zeltzer explains how to

  • Soothe the nervous system
  • Reactivate the body’s natural pain control mechanisms
  • Determine which medications are most effective
  • Implement relaxation techniques
  • Reduce parents’ guilt
  • And more

Dr. Zeltzer says, "It is never too late to treat pain in children, no matter how long it has lasted," and Conquering Your Child's Chronic Pain is the essential tool for rebuilding a normal life for many families today.

First Sentence
I can hardly believe that until the late 1980s it was commonly accepted in the medical world that children do not feel pain in the same way that adults do. Read the first page

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic, must read! June 15 2005
By mominpa - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
For all parents struggling with a child in chronic pain, this book is superb! Dr. Zeltzer has written a supportive and thorough book that encompasses all types of treatment options....medicine, alternative therapies, etc. The book is easy to read and supports us all through this difficult experience, giving us information and a wonderful resource to discuss specific issues with our own doctors. Another value to this book is that you, as a parent, will feel validated, as will your child....that your child's pain is real and there ARE things your family can do to better manage it and to help him/her deal with this. As an added bonus, she lists every pediatric pain management clinic and other resources for more information. The book is written for the lay person...without the usual medical jargon...all parents with a child in pain can read and find amazing value in this!

5.0 out of 5 stars This Book Gave My Child Back Her Life March 20 2008
By Myra Bradwell - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
We came across this book after my adolescent daughter had been hospitalized twice and completely disabled from migraines that started when she hit puberty. We'd crossed the country to get her the best available treatment for migraines, without much improvement. By the time we read this book, we'd exhausted all the medical options available to us and were completely desperate. Its very reasonable methods for dealing with chronic pain changed her, and therefore our, lives. We gave up looking for the most high powered doctors and found local doctors with experience in dealing with chronic pain who were in synch with the methods discussed in the book. (E.g., children with chronic pain need to function to get better, since pain is a product of the conscious mind; medications can help, but aren't a silver bullet; yoga and biofeedback can help children cope.) One year later my daughter, although not pain free, is much, much better, and enjoying life again. She's back in school on a regular basis, has a normal social life again, and is generally back to living her life.

5.0 out of 5 stars Suddenly the light at the end of the tunnel seemed brighter July 26 2008
By C. Pritchett - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
I myself am a fifteen year old girl dealing with numerous chronic pain issues. My mother the same, and my brother who may not be so bad now had it horrible as a child. So after so many years of visiting one doctor after the other and trying so many types of medicines that it gave me a headache just to sit down and try to remember them all, I got hopeless. I felt as if nothing would work and no one could tell me otherwise. My mother gave me this book and I let it sit there and collect dust for weeks despite being the avid reader that I am. Last night I finally got the nerve to read it since I couldn't sleep and my head was pounding.I must say that it was enlightening, tear bringing, and one of the most uplifting things I have read in years. I could say that after only the first ten pages that I read. I'd recommend this to anyone who has children or teenagers with chronic pain, and maybe even those teens themselves. It doesn't seem to improve your physical pain right away, but the emotional pain of not knowing what to do and feeling hopeless sure does lesson and that's a blessing in and of itself.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great book written by a caring doctor March 27 2008
By Polar Mfg - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
A terrific guide to treatment options for children experiencing chronic pain. Covers a variety of syndromes & diseases with specific examples of patients with outcomes. I was desperately looking for a humane treatment for my daughter's CRPS. Not only did she cover the topic but the author was kind enough to provide a referral to a local doc specializing in the treatment.

5.0 out of 5 stars the answer we've been looking for Nov. 29 2010
By sully - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
My 10 yr old son is a patient of Dr. Zeltzer, the author of this book. We had been through a nightmare ordeal because of my son's chronic stomach pain. Seen numerous doctors, tried mind altering meds. Everthing changed after our appt. with her clinic. Another patient told me about the book and it soon became clear that this author is one of the doctors who is both brilliant and compassionate, a rare thing for most doctors. This is a thorough comprehensive book that changed the direction of my son's health issues. I would recommend this book to anyone who has a child who is suffering some kind of chronic illness.
