Something different today for everyone who has aches and pains from hours spent making jewelry: A friend recently put me on to a book that is absolutely wonderful. The title is “Listen to Your Pain”and the author is Ben E. Benjamin.
The book opens with a discussion of pain and how to evaluate an injury. In the second part of the book there’s a lengthy section on finding your injury (don’t laugh, pain is often referred to other areas than the actual injury site), followed by information on rehabilitation. The book is filled with detailed sketches and diagrams of analyzing injury and then treating it. This book is available in paperback from Amazon and it’s an amazing resource.
