This book offers essential guidance on selecting the most appropriate surgical management option for a variety of spinal conditions, including idiopathic problems, and degenerative disease. While the first part of the book discusses the neuroanatomy and biomechanics of the spine, pain mechanisms, and imaging techniques, the second guides the reader through the diagnostic process and treatment selection for disorders of the different regions of the spine, based on the principles of evidence-based medicine. I.e., it clearly explains why a particular technique should be selected for a specific patient on the basis of the available evidence, which is carefully reviewed. The book identifies potential complications and highlights technical pearls, describing newer surgical techniques and illustrating them with the help of images and accompanying videos. Though primarily intended for neurosurgeons, the book will also be of interest to orthopaedic surgeons, specialists in physical medicine, and pain specialists.
This is the first book developed specifically for the Final FFICM structured oral examination. It is written by two senior trainees who have recently passed the exam and is edited by a consultant intensivist with a special interest in education. The book is designed in the style of the SOE, and provides model answers which include summaries of the relevant evidence to guide trainees in their preparation for the exam. The 91 topics and questions therein are drawn from previous exam sittings, and are expanded further to ensure each topic is covered in detail. This text is a valuable revision aid to those studying for the Final FFICM, and will also prove useful to trainees revising for the Final FRCA, as it covers popular ICM topics that often come up in the anaesthetic fellowship exams.
Transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation (TENS) is a technique
that delivers mild electrical currents across the intact surface of
the skin to reduce pain. TENS is used by practitioners throughout
the world to manage painful conditions and TENS equipment can be
purchased by the general public so that they can self-administer
treatment. There are thousands of experimental and clinical
research studies published on TENS and related techniques yet there
is uncertainty about the best way to administer TENS in clinical
practice. This is because currents used during TENS can be
administered in a variety of ways and the findings of research
studies have been inconclusive.

his text blends current mainstream understanding (such as research, and pathophysiology) of chronic pain and integrative treatment wisdom. It provides both mainstream and CAM practitioners a reference tool to provide good and effective information and clinical decision-making on treatment options for people suffering from chronic pain. The how and why pain is epidemic is discussed. The approach is on the symptoms of pain, and how pain is individually expressed rather than the diagnoses of pain. Diagnoses are often misidentified, misunderstood, or multiple terms exist for a similar or potentially the same condition. To avoid this, the text will instead talk about expressions of pain. Pain anatomy presents the physical underpinnings for the chemical/hormonal, neurological, and soft tissue/fibrotic tissue explanations of pain. In the book visuals and diagrams will help the reader understand the function and dysfunction of pain. The material is grounded in research, providing basic reasoning for the body-based and mind-body approaches as it pertains to the theoretical constructs.The pedagogy is introduced, outlining the relationship between CAM and allopathic healthcare, and patient-centered therapeutic approaches as the frame for clinical decision-making. A variety of movement modalities and mind-body approaches are discussed and each chapter will include: a. Theoretical approach to treating pain/how the approach addresses current pain theories b. Assessment techniques: interview questions, measurement tools and techniques c. Treatment plan, techniques, modalities d. Self-care approaches e. Re-evaluation, measure of progress f. Supporting literature

Chronic pain challenges the central tenet of biomedicine: that
objective knowledge of the human body and mind is possible apart
from subjective experience and social context. Sufferers, finding
that chronic pain alters every aspect of life, often become
frustrated and distrust a profession seemingly unable to explain or
effectively treat their illness. The authors of this innovative
volume offer an entirely different, ethnographic approach,
searching out more effective ways to describe and analyze the human
context of pain.

The most common medical problem in America today, chronic pain is more prevalent than cancer, heart disease, and diabetes combined. Yet tens of millions of people struggle with pain because they can't find someone who understands how much pain affects their lives-and because they live in a culture where pain is dismissed.

Drawing on his years of experience and the inspirational stories of others, he explores: - What a difference it makes to be heard - Why pain is much more than a symptom of disease - The benefits and risks of opioid prescriptions - How cultural attitudes toward pain affect us - The role of a caregiver in the journey of pain and recovery - How, even in the worst pain situations, you can have a fulfilling life The Painful Truth offers a path toward awareness, hope, and healing.
