Phyllis started her career in Physiotherapy by being interested in acute orthopaedic trauma, which brought her into contact with patients with complex regional pain syndromes (CRPS). She developed an interest in chronic pain conditions both spinal and peripheral and found herself in the realm of pain management.

Phyllis has published three books, the first, Action Potential Currents 1999. The second, the Journey to Pain Relief was first published in South Africa 2003 and then revised and published in the USA 2007.

The Journey to Pain Relief

book_journeytopainrelief2"For every pain sufferer who has not been helped by conventional medicine, does not want to remain dependent on pain medications and is looking for innovative alternatives - this is the book."

The Journey to Pain Relief is both a complete handbook of pain-management options and a detailed introduction to specific cutting-edge techniques.

Introducing Action Potential Currents

book_actionpotentialpng"In this book, the author has applied her skills and vast clinical experience of physiotherapy and electromedicine to one form of peripheral stimulation analgesia, namely that of action potential simulation current. She has carefully dissected out its development, clinical applications, and the difference of its electrical waveform and electrical characteristics as compared to that of transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulations (or TENS) and other currents. Its uses in the treatment of both acute (sports injuries, burns, bruises) and chronic painful conditions (osteoarthritis, spondylo-artropathies) are discussed. " - Extract from the Forward.

Through her extensive experience with pain clinics, author Phyllis Berger — a chronic pain sufferer herself — realized that pain relief was highly dependent on stress factors. She found relief could be more rapidly achieved by blocking pain with electrical currents and acupuncture, relieving anxiety and releasing emotions, and increasing pain-free movements with exercises, especially enjoyable exercises that build strength and endurance. Focusing on the brain and its complex chemical interactions and electrical circuitry, The Journey to Pain Relief provides solid information, advice, and treatment suggestions to empower both the chronic pain sufferer and the pain therapist. The author authoritatively describes ways to combine a wide range of treatments that tap into the body's inherent knowledge and ability to heal, increase exercise ability, stimulate the production of helpful chemical substances in the body, and encourage the positive attitudes that will bring many more patients to that often elusive destination of pain relief and control.
