PRACTICAL MANAGEMENT OF PAIN presents a comprehensive approach to chronic pain with its practical, concise descriptions of pain evaluation, pain syndromes, rationales for management, and treatment modalities. The book includes commonly seen pain syndromes, including headaches, trunk pain, orofacial pain, back pain, and extremity pain, as well as specific pain syndromes such as postoperative pain, pain due to cancer, phantom pain, and pain in the management of AIDS patients.
