About

Overview

This is the most comprehensive overview available anywhere on the broad, multi-faceted and complex topic of pain and the rapidly evolving scientific and medical disciplines that seek to understand, assess and treat it. More than 3,000 entries provide clear, detailed and up-to-date coverage of the current state of research, and treatment of pain. Essays offer in-depth information on all aspects of nociception and pain, including substrates, causes, pathophysiology, symptoms and signs, diagnoses and treatment. 1,000 color figures enhance understanding. This three-volume reference is an invaluable tool for clinical scientists and practitioners, as well as students, teachers and interested laypersons.
