Hawkeye Books is pleased to commemorate the second anniversary of the inspiring biography, Breaking Through the Pain Barrier: The Extraordinary Life of Dr Michael J. Cousins, by Gabriella Kelly-Davies.
Michael Cousins, a trailblazer in pain medicine, revolutionised the way we understand and manage pain. His groundbreaking research and unwavering dedication gave hope to millions, not just in Australia, but across the globe.
In Australia alone, one in five individuals, that’s around 3.6 million people, live with chronic pain, a condition often misunderstood and difficult to treat. Chronic pain is a complex malfunction in the nervous system’s processing of pain signals, but thanks to pioneers like Dr Cousins, we know that it can be managed through multidisciplinary approaches.
Breaking Through the Pain Barrier was a labour of love for author Gabriella Kelly-Davies, who has first-hand knowledge about chronic pain and the challenges faced by sufferers.
Launched by Painaustralia during National Pain Week in July 2021, this biography serves as a beacon of resilience, innovation and hope. It’s not just a book – it’s a journey through the life of a man who dedicated himself to alleviating the suffering of millions. It’s a testament to the power of human spirit and scientific curiosity.
On this special occasion, we encourage you to dive into the pages of this remarkable story and gain a deeper understanding of chronic pain and the revolution in its treatment. Knowledge is power, and this book is a wealth of knowledge about pain, hope, and resilience.
