Summary

Chronic pain is something that ALL medical professionals will encounter, no matter if they practice in primary care or a surgical/procedural specialty. Moreover, it is something that likely you will personally experience in your own life as well. To this point, we were not aware of a handbook that encapsulates the many pillars of Pain Medicine into a concise, easy-to-follow guide.

As double board-certified Anesthesiologists and Interventional Pain Medicine Physicians, we believe we have created just that: an easy-to-utilize handbook that covers all the major areas of pain medicine that will undoubtedly help you in your medical careers.

This handbook is appropriately set up in the following sections: Introduction to Pain and Pain Signaling Pathways, Common Categories of Pharmacologic Medications Utilized to Treat Chronic Pain, various Chronic Pain Conditions (in order from head and neck down to the lower extremities), Miscellaneous Pain Conditions, and finally Adjunctive/Complementary Modalities.
