Neuropathic Pain Causes, Management and Understanding by Cory Toth

Neuropathic Pain Causes, Management and Understanding


Neuropathic Pain Causes, Management and Understanding by Cory Toth

Central or peripheral neuropathic pain can be caused by a wide range of injuries, infections and diseases such as: spinal cord injury, multiple sclerosis, stroke, herpes zoster, diabetes and cancer. Many of these pain syndromes are difficult to treat, representing a challenge for many neurologists not routinely trained in pain management. Written by an international team of experts in the field, Neuropathic Pain: Causes, Management and Understanding gives readers an in-depth understanding of the multitude of conditions causing neuropathic pain. Epidemiology, clinical diagnosis, pathophysiology, outcome measurement and the best evidence-based management of individual and general neuropathic pain conditions are also described in depth. A unique chapter, written from a patient's viewpoint, gives new insight into how chronic neuropathic pain affects the lives of those patients with the condition. This book is essential reading for all pain specialists, neurologists, psychiatrists and anesthesiologists who wish to better understand their patients' neuropathic pain.


...Remarkable in its content and...clarity. The management is evidence based and to the point...the guidance is unambiguous and remarkably straightforward...very useful book for the treatment of patients suffering from neuropathic pain.
