Management of Acute and Chronic Neck Pain
By

Rating
Pain management is a huge problem and one which has important medico-legal and economic implications for health care providers. It is a growing area of interest and importance for many medical and health care professionals. It takes a truly integrated approach involving a team comprising medical practitioners, clinical psychologists, physiotherapists, occupational therapists and nurse practitioners. Different professions may work together but the approach may also be adopted by individual practitioners. Until recently most attention was focussed on low back pain but now the key area of interest for new research is neck pain and related headache often associated with whiplash or poor posture in working environments eg using computers. This book presents the latest research findings and gives recommendations and guidelines on how to relate those findings to the prevention and management of neck pain. It also points the way�of areas where more research is needed.New volume in an established series conceived and commissioned by Sir Patrick Wall and companion to an existing title in the series by the same authors Compiled and edited by two extremely well known names in the field of research into musculoskeletal pain its management and prevention Clinically relevant and research based. Of multiprofessional interest and relevance. Fully up to the minute - based on the very latest research.

Reviews

-An extremely thorough book detailing and clarifying terminology and definitions before moving into pain, risk factors and specifics of injury. The scope of the book is specific to the neck and divided into acute and chronic pain and then whiplash and cervicogenic headache. This is one of the most well referenced and up to date books i have read on the spine. The diagrams, illustrations and tables add to the clarity of information and ease of understanding. Clear explanations and division of aspects of acute and chronic neck pain mean information can be taken on a specific topic or read through in a logic and progressive order - taking a history, physical examination, imaging, tests and evidence for treatment. One of the best aspects of this book is its utilitarian approach to the evidence ensuring it is strictly evidence based and does not allow for opinion or consensus, only evidence. Overall a very good book and a excellent addition to any physiotherapists bookshelf.- Nicholas Downing, physiotherapy student, University of Birmingham "An extremely thorough book detailing and clarifying terminology and definitions before moving into pain, risk factors and specifics of injury.
