Interventional spine medicine involves the management of back pain through invasive treatments such as facet joint injections, nerve blocks, neuroaugmentation and implantable drug delivery systems.
Presented with a case-based approach, this manual provides practitioners and trainees with the most recent advances in interventional spine procedures. Divided into eighteen chapters, each one deals with a different type of back pain, detailing the typical pain pattern, patient history, physical examination, imaging and interpretation, and treatment options and potential complications. Non-surgical treatment options including pharmacology, physical therapy and injections are discussed in depth.
Written by internationally recognised experts from the Rothman Institute, Philadelphia, this practical book includes nearly 80 images and illustrations.
