    This lesson will cover the basics of pain. We'll discuss the different types of pain, the basic mechanism of pain, what structures are involved, and how your own body or drugs try to stop it. Written by internationally renowned leaders in the fields of peripheral neuropathy and neuropathic pain, this resource discusses the clinical approaches to diagnosis and treatment of neuropathic pain, its underlying mechanisms, and strategies for prevention. In addition, chapters cover timely issues, including legal and ethical concerns surrounding pain treatment, the status of clinical trial.

    This book provides a comprehensive overview of the role of psychology in treating patients with chronic pain, using evidence-based therapies. Taking a multidisciplinary approach that includes cognitive behavioral therapy, acceptance and commitment therapy, and chronic pain self-management, Beth D. Darnall shows mental health professionals how to use mindfulness interventions, hypnosis, and Pages:   Persistent or chronic pain is the primary reason people seek medical care, yet current therapies are either inadequate for certain types of pain or cause intolerable side effects. Recently, pain neurobiologists have identified a number of cellular and molecular processes that lead to the initiation and maintenance of pain. Understanding these underlying mechanisms has given significant promise Cited by:

The neural mechanisms by which pain is perceived are part of a complex neurophysiological process. Most patients facing the end-of-life transition have pain. Nurses must understand the physiological process and the person’s sensory perception of the process in order to assure that the patient has appropriate therapies to obtain pain relief.
