Musculoskeletal Pain – Assessment, Prediction and Treatment

A pragmatic approach

£29.50 GBP / $35.00 USD Free delivery in the UK and USA

Musculoskeletal Pain – Assessment, Prediction and Treatment presents a common sense approach to interpreting and applying existing clinical knowledge and new research to help clinicians make sense of the complex phenomena of acute and chronic post-traumatic musculoskeletal pain. Built upon the Assess, Predict, Treat framework, the authors offer a method to help clinicians better understand their patients’ pain. They present evidence-based decision tools to predict the natural and clinical course of common conditions, such as neck and low back pain, and they then synthesize that information into a logical, integrated treatment approach, which respects the individuality of the patient, the experiences of the clinician, and the value of evidence-informed practice.

David Walton and James Elliott are leaders in the field of post-traumatic pain and recovery. Their work provides a valuable framework to facilitate novice clinicians in their transition towards experts and helps mid- and late-stage clinicians better interpret, synthesize, and discuss complex information on pain with the goal of optimised outcomes for patients.

 

Watch David and James describe why they were compelled to combine their skills and experience to write Musculoskeletal Pain – Assessment, Prediction and Treatment and what they intend the book to provide to student and practising PTs and other bodyworkers:

 

INTRODUCTION A Pragmatic Approach to Seeing the Invisible

CHAPTER 1 The Assess, Predict, Treat Philosophy

CHAPTER 2 The Radar Plot and Triangulation

CHAPTER 3: Classifications of Pain that Actually Matter

  • Neck Pain
  • Low Back Pain

CHAPTER 4: Creating Your ‘Go-To’ Toolbox

CHAPTER 5: The Physiological Nociceptive Domain

CHAPTER 6: The Cognitive Domain

CHAPTER 7: The Affective/Emotional Domain

CHAPTER 8: The Peripheral Neuropathic Domain

CHAPTER 9: The Central Nociplastic Domain

CHAPTER 10: The Sensorimotor Incongruence Domain

CHAPTER 11: The Socioenvironmental Domain

CHAPTER 12: Using the Domains to Create a Pain Phenotype

Review by Laura Eccott MSc (NMS), MMACP, Committee Member of the Musculoskeletal Association of Chartered Physiotherapists

This is the first edition of ‘Musculoskeletal Pain – Assessment, Prediction and Treatment a Pragmatic Approach’. The authors have extensive educational and research experience in the field of pain and provide a valuable text for the novice clinician to enhance their understanding of pain assessment. As a clinical text, this book presents an original clinical reasoning framework of pain assessment in a logical and structured format using a seven-point radar plot.

The format of this text commences by introducing the novel model of reasoning before exploring in-depth the seven pain drivers including physiological nociceptive, neuropathic, central nociplastic, cognitive, emotional, socioenvironmental, and sensorimotor disintegration domains. Given the complexity in understanding the phenomenology of pain and its assessment, this framework provides clinicians with an evidence informed process to aid their clinical reasoning using relevant clinical examples throughout. Recommendations are based on contemporary evidence with areas lacking literature clearly identified, criticality is evident throughout. The suggested evidence for triangulation of differing pain drivers is especially informative; the tables used make this information clear and are well-structured. The assessment strategy presented will clearly aid clinicians recognise the multifactorial nature of pain.

This text encourages practitioners to promote a patient centred approach with respect to assessment and management of pain. There is, however, a clear focus on subjective and physical assessment more so then management. This text recognises this and highlights the importance of this to inform clinically reasoned management. Specific assessment techniques e.g. conditioned pain modulation is described in sufficient detail and where necessary are supported by images. This is especially helpful for those who have little or no experiences in this area. The case studies are invaluable to enable the reader to develop their clinical reasoning and understanding. These are based on relevant and realistic clinical scenarios whilst requiring the reader to apply the seven-point radar plot, this chapter of the book will aid the readers knowledge translation. The questions embedded within these case studies are appropriately challenging for the novice clinician and encourage the reader to consider their understanding of pain assessment.

Overall, this clinical text would make a useful addition to a novice practitioner’s library where they are seeking to develop knowledge and skills in this topic. Furthermore, given the complexity of the subject of pain this text would also be a valuable addition to a student’s reference list.
