Here in one concise volume is a complete review of localized and generalized musculoskeletal disorders. Musculoskeletal Pain, Myofascial Pain Syndrome, and the Fibromyalgia Syndrome includes the latest research findings on these disorders from medical leaders around the world. This broad-based symposium updates both researcher and clinician on the most recent advances and pioneering approaches to musculoskeletal pain, with special emphasis on the myofascial pain and fibromyalgia syndromes. Chapters represent important thinking and clinical approaches from authorities in nine countries. Myofascial pain and fibromyalgia syndromes are covered extensively by the contributors to this book. The coverage they provide on issues related to these two syndromes is multidimensional and includesepidemiologyclinical featurespathophysiologytreatment The review chapters featured in the book span epidemiology, pathophysiology, and treatment on both myofascial pain and fibromyalgia. These report-like chapters provide brief insight of musculoskeletal pain disorders which is ideal for beginners in the field.
Advanced readers will benefit from the more specific research chapters which report on fibromyalgia and myofascial pain. All readers will particularly benefit from "Consensus Document on Fibromyalgia: The Copenhagen Declaration," a report which releases the latest definitions, research, and treatment findings for musculoskeletal disorders from the world?s leading experts. The Consensus also sets down the challenge for intensified future research. Physicians, dentists, chiropractors at all levels of practice, and expert physiotherapists will gain much insight on these disorders from this compendium of information. While dentists are probably most interested in myofascial pain, all the subjects covered are of equal interest to these medical practitioners. MORE COPYMany of the contributing authors or groups of authors have included tables, figures or illustrations, and charts to accurately and succinctly complement their research findings and presentations.
A selection of only a few tables and charts reveals multidimensional topics such as these:Problems Associated With Diagnosis in FibromyalgiaComparison of Sensitivity, Specificity, and Accuracy of the 1990 Criteria for the Classification of Fibromyalgia With Previous Criteria SetsPopulation Surveys of Fibromyalgia PrevalenceContent Validity for Diagnostic Criteria for Masticatory Myofascial PainMedications Tested in Controlled Therapeutic Trials in FibromyalgiaPathobiology of Classical Diseases Versus Dynamics of Dysfunctional SyndromesExercise and Pain Characteristics of Women With FibromyalgiaNeck Muscle Function in Cerviocobrachial Syndrome Compared to Healthy Subjects The figures are no less revealing; they highlight exciting discoveries and diagram vital discoveries which expand current understanding of musculoskeletal disorders.
Here is a sample of the types of figures included:Pain Diagrams From Four Patients With FibromyalgiaGenetic Predisposition to Muscle MicrotraumaCalcium Activated Muscle DamageClassification and Subsetting of FibromyalgiaCross-Sections of a Capillary From a Tender Point of the Trapezius Muscle in a Fibromyalgia PatientGeneral Pain on Visual Analog Scale
