  • acknowledges the expanding direct access role of the various health professions both at the entry-level and postgraduate level
  • addresses concerns among clinicians that research is overemphasized at the expense of experiential knowledge and pathophysiologic rationale
  • multiple-contributed by expert clinicians and researchers with an international outlook
  • covers diagnosis, prognosis and conservative treatment of the most commonly seen pain syndromes in clinical practice
