Haworth series in clinical pain and symptom palliation


Advances in the understanding and treatment of pain have made it difficult for nonspecialists to keep up with all the new pain-relief options. McLeane (consulting physician, pain management, Northern Ireland) and Smith (anesthesiology, Albany Medical College, New York) introduce two dozen chapters discussing basic pain mechanisms, benign and cancerous bone and joint pain conditions, evidence-based treatments, and acupuncture as an alternative treatment. They also treat pain felt over a bone or joint but due to neuropathy, referred pain, or complex regional pain syndrome. Fibromyalgia is briefly mentioned. Chapters include suggested treatment protocols and photos showing injection techniques.
