Abstract

This resource addresses the current understanding of pain mechanisms related to sex differences, and the clinical management of common acute and chronic painful conditions in women, using up-to-date, evidence-based information. The painful conditions discussed include those that are specific to female anatomy and physiology, as well as conditions that have a higher female prevalence.
