Patients with pain are ubiquitous across medical and surgical practice. Despite recent advances, patients and their physicians are still frustrated at times, facing challenges in diagnosing and managing—much less relieving—sources of pain. The innovative and imminently accessible second edition of the Atlas of Common Pain Syndromes can be expected to be an important resource for clinicians. Addressing 106 common to less common pain conditions encountered by a spectrum of practicing clinicians, it provides expert guidance structured by a practical “how-to-do-it” approach, reinforced with evocative illustrations, and distilling pathognomonic pain presentations with high-quality correlating radiological images.
