Pain-Free Living April-May 16

Our April/May issue is on sale now at Barnes & Noble and other retailers. Here’s what you’ll find inside:

On the heels of the recent federal guidelines on opioids, Jackson Rainer examines the issue of opioid prescription without addiction through patient case studies and expert perspectives on how both educated health-care professionals and responsible patients can successfully use opioids to ease pain.

In our cover story, health-care writer Paul Wynn offers tips to make traveling with a chronic pain condition more manageable and enjoyable.

Medical writer Kurt Ullman explores the relationship between psoriasis and psoriatic arthritis.

Brian P. Dunleavy explains Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and how to manage it. And you can test your knowledge of CFS in our quiz.

In our news pages, we report on how people from different countries view arthritis, the benefits of tai chi for knee pain, and declining death rates for people with rheumatoid arthritis.

Food writer Susan Ojanen explains the health benefits of ginger, and she offers delicious recipes for cooking with it, including gingered salmon and no-cook chocolate ginger fudge.

Plus, we introduce you to Katie Emanuel, the owner of Hoja, an Anatolian Shepherd Dog that won Best of Breed in the 2016 Westminster Kennel Club dog show. When Hoja is not competing, he is the service dog to Katie, who lives with the chronic pain of lupus.

Please take a look, and if you have questions, feel free to contact me.
