Abstract

Pelvic Pain Management is an evidence-based guide to understanding the basics of pain mechanisms, pharmacology, invasive and noninvasive treatment modalities, and pain management protocols related to the complex problem of pelvic pain. The book addresses all aspects of pain management essentials, new technologies and devices, chronic pain issues, opioid and non-opioid pharmacology, including newly approved drugs, and special populations including pediatrics, the elderly, and patients with co-existing disease. It provides information on performing a proper physical exam, diagnosing the origins of the pain, and developing a treatment plan with emphasis on multidisciplinary management. This is an ideal resource for physicians, trainees, and nurses looking to recognize, diagnose and manage all major issues related to pelvic pain.
