Pathways to Pain Relief is an extension of the pioneering work of John E. Sarno, M.D., Professor of Rehabilitation Medicine, New York University School of Medicine.  


The authors, Dr. Frances Sommer Anderson & Dr. Eric Sherman, present clinical case material to illustrate how musculoskeletal pain and other psychophysiological disorders can originate from psychological experiences as a means to protect an individual from unbearable emotional distress.
