Overview

Gathers a group of internationally recognized specialists from diverse backgrounds to address the baffling problem of pain associated with dysfunction of the autonomic nervous system. The 25 contributions to this volume represent the most current information available on CRPS, including new diagnostic approaches. Sections include an overview; animal models addressing topics including sympathetic involvement in the spinal nerve ligation model of neuropathic pain, the role of injured and uninjured afferents in neuropathic pain, and the value of animal models in research on CRPS; human experimentation including kinematic analysis of the upper extremity in CRPS, grip force coordination in CRPS, disuse and CRPS, and genetic considerations; and diagnosis issues and techniques.
