Patients with pain disorders pose many clinical challenges for the attending physician. Even experienced clinicians occasionally arrive at the point where diagnostic, work-up, treatment, or prognostic thinking becomes blocked
Pain teaches the reader to recognize and appropriately treat a variety of pain disorders using a case study format. Divided into three section, chronic pain conditions, chronic pain and related disorders, and treatment overview, and derived from consultation requests from providers in medical practice, the cases are written in a format that encourages the reader to formulate a differential diagnosis and treatment plan for a variety of pain problems. Succinct in its presentation and logical in its layout, Pain is the perfect resource for the busy practitioner on the go.
