Book Description

The second edition of Chronic Pain now covers a vast scientific and clinical arena, with the scientific background and therapeutic options much expanded. In common with the other titles comprising Clinical Pain Management, the volume gathers together the available evidence-based information in a reader-friendly format without unnecessary detail, and is divided into three parts.

The broad coverage under Part One encompasses basic science, including applied physiology, genetics and epidemiology, through societal aspects of chronic pain and disability, to patient assessment, diagnostic procedures and outcome measures.

Part Two considers the different therapies available, including pharmacological, psychological, behavioural, interventional and alternative.

In Part Three specific and non-specific pain syndromes and their management are described, including pain in neurological disease, in HIV and AIDS patients, and after surgery or spinal cord injury, regional pain in the head, face, neck, back, joints, chest, abdomen and pelvis, and issues related to pain in children, the elderly and in association with substance misuse.
