Central Pain Syndrome is a neurological condition caused by damage specifically to the central nervous system - brain, brainstem, or spinal cord. This is the only up-to-date book available on the clinical aspects (including diagnosis and therapy) of CPS management. The authors have developed a very complete reference source on central pain, which includes background material, pathophysiology, and diagnostic and therapeutic information. A medical mystery for 100 years with no effective cure, this book turns the concept of incurability of central pain on its head providing a rational approach to therapy based on a rational theory.

• The only up-to-date reference available on CPS management • Pathology and its management are hot issues at this time and will make this reference an essential purchase • Offers much of the information in tabular form for quick and easy reference
