In Craniofacial Pain, von Piekartz and his co-authors combine the latest evidence-based knowledge from the fields of orthodontics, plastic and neurosurgery, as well as otolaryngeal treatments, physiotherapy and manual therapy to provide new treatment strategies for clinicians interested in craniofacial problems.

Von Piekartz's approach is based on the latest clinical reasoning models. Grounded in pain science theory and modern craniofacial growth concepts, the techniques can be integrated into any manual, neuro-orthopaedic orientated treatment model. This approach can be easily used in the daily clinic and adapted to a variety of patterns of craniofacial pain.

Craniofacial Pain is an invaluable clinical text for practitioners who are interested in, or who work with, patients of all ages with a wide range of head, neck and facial problems, and builds upon the companion text to this volume Craniofacial Dysfunction and Pain (2000).
