Effective pain management requires increasingly specialized knowledge.

Multidisciplinary information is required if you intend to practice pain management at a high level of effectiveness. This includes anatomy and physiology, pain syndromes, diagnosis and management, and the correct use of interventional techniques.

Pain-Relieving Procedures: The Illustrated Guide provides you with a step-by-step guide to interventional techniques underpinned by a solid multidisciplinary knowledge base. The text is enhanced by the wide use of illustrations, including amazing color 3D-CT images that enable you to easily visualize anatomy.

The first part of the book gives the fundamentals you need for modern pain practice. The second part describes all commonly used procedures, using a head-to-toe organization. 

  • The head
  • The neck
  • The thoracic region
  • The thoraco-abdominal region
  • The lumbar region
  • The pelvic and sacral region 

A special chapter covers more advanced techniques such as continuous analgesia, spinal cord and sacral stimulation, vertebroplasty and kyphoplasty. 

Each procedure is described using a template that includes anatomy, indications, contraindications, technique and complications. Helpful hints throughout will help you refine your practice to achieve better results. 

Concise, straightforward, and indispensable, Pain-Relieving Procedures: The Illustrated Guide provides the most effective interventional methods for those practicing pain management.
