The strength of Current Therapy in Pain lies in its presentation of a diffuse spectrum of modern theories about pain and its treatment, while acknowledging both the promise and limitations of these concepts. The text is organized into 13 sections, incorporating 1 section each on acute pain, chronic cancer pain, and chronic noncancer pain, and 7 on pain therapies. These treatment options include pharmacological, behavioral, physiatric, neuromodulatory, alternative, neurosurgical, and interventional approaches to pain management.
