This is a comprehensive resource written by and for anaesthetists, physiatrists, neurologists, interventional radiologists, interventional pain specialists, orthopaedic surgeons, neurosurgeons and therapists treating painful spinal disorders globally. The book describes basic principles that must be understood before patients with spinal pain can be treated and procedures are clearly explained. Practice-proven diagnostic and therapeutic algorithms are given for all conditions. Detailed protocols are given for what to do in different scenarios and, most importantly, what to do next. Surgical treatment is covered only to the extent useful to the non-surgeon. It includes unique information never before published in one resource.
