Pain has many dimensions, biological, psychological and social, warranting attention in clinical management and research. Despite advances in pain management and understanding, chronic pain in particular continues to be a major health concern. Many challenging problems persist in our efforts to understand and manage chronic pain. This revised and updated second edition of Clinical Pain Management: A Practical Guide draws attention to the challenges that exist for people living with chronic pain conditions, for the clinician trying to provide effective management of the patient's pain, for the scientist seeking to unravel the mechanisms underlying pain, and for society as a whole.

This book offers the opportunity for clinicians to improve their knowledge about pain and apply that knowledge for the benefit of their patients. The editors have ensured that its second edition has built upon the first edition which was distinctive in its integration of the clinical, psychosocial and basic science topics related to the different types of pain and their management. As a result of the up-to-date information outlined in the 45 chapters of its second edition, this book provides a valuable resource about pain from a variety of perspectives.

Clinical Pain Management: A Practical Guide, Second Edition, will be particularly valuable not only for clinicians to help them assist with their patients experiencing an acute pain or suffering from chronic pain, but also for scientists who wish to gain more insights into these pain conditions and their underlying processes.
