Summary:
"As part of the Oxford American Pain Library, this practical handbook is designed to serve as a concise yet authoritative resource on diagnosing and treating back and neck pain. Co-authored by two primary care physicians and a nurse practitioner with extensive expertise in pain medicine and management, the book is tailored to the needs of busy health care professionals treating patients in the primary care setting, and focuses on essential clinical information for physicians and other healthcare professionals who see patients with these widespread and often debilitating conditions. In addition to covering all aspects of diagnosis, treatment--both pharmacological and non-pharmacological, and ongoing management of back and neck pain, the handbook also features chapters dedicated to similar conditions of myofascial pain, whiplash and fibromyalgia"--Provided by publisher.
