This chapter on musculoskeletal pain is composed of a question-and-answer bank that encompasses the breadth of the fund of knowledge required for the evaluation and management of various chronic musculoskeletal pain syndromes. Not only do probing questions with concise and informative answer explanations challenge the reader’s knowledge base but also references for further reading and mastery of the subject are provided. Topics covered include epidemiology, disability, rehabilitation, anatomy and physiology (including neurophysiology and mediators of inflammation), and the musculoskeletal exam. The pathophysiology, diagnosis, and management of musculoskeletal pain conditions such as common orthopedic and occupational injuries, osteoarthritis, chronic tissue pain states, and various autoimmune diseases (e.g., rheumatoid arthritis) are also expertly reviewed. These high-yield questions correspond to the musculoskeletal pain section of the American Board of Medical Specialties Pain Medicine Content Outline.
