The understanding of pain has undergone extraordinary development over the last 25 years. Half of all medical visits are initiated because of pain. The need for all clinicians and trainees to have a foundational knowledge of pain has become more critically important than ever. Not surprisingly, most books on pain medicine are almost all written by "pain management doctors," physicians who've trained in "pain medicine" and devote their lives to treating pain. However, the burden of pain extends to all doctors, not just those who treat it every day. Managing Pain: Essentials of Diagnosis and Treatment offers a fundamental guide on the diagnosis and therapy of frequently encountered pain conditions for non-pain physicians and clinicians. Written using easily-accessible language, this book first reviews the basics of opioids and other therapies, including psychotherapy and complementary modalities. The second part of the book presents clinically-relevant cases chosen to reflect those conditions most frequently encountered by primary care providers. Edited by world-renowned experts in pain medicine, with many chapters written by non-pain physicians who are experts in their respective specialties, Managing Pain: Essentials of Diagnosis and Treatment is a useful guide for the non-pain-trained healthcare provider who is on the frontlines treating chronic pain.
