The Explain Pain Handbook: Protectometer is a key element in the Explain Pain toolkit. An easily accessible book for people experiencing pain, it introduces the ‘Protectometer’ – a ground breaking pain treatment tool. The centerpiece of the handbook, the Protectometer, is an interactive device that allows patients and therapists to gain a deeper understanding of the experience and establish an individualized treatment and education plan. This handbook – your personal workbook – helps you understand your personal pain formula, identify your DIMs (Danger in Me) and SIMs (Safety in Me) and provides six clear strategies for recovery from pain.
