Pain Mechanisms and Management. S. N. Ayapetian, A. V. Apkarian. The overall themes of this book are recent advances in mechanisms of pain and the application of those in clinics.
Pain Mechanisms and Management. Specific attention is paid to developing countries where practice of pain management seriously lags behind current scientific understanding. Both the local traditions for curing pain and the substances used are presented in this book.
Apkar Vania Apkarian is a professor of physiology, anesthesiology, and physical medicine and rehabilitation at Northwestern University in the Feinberg School of Medicine. He has been a pioneer in the use of Magnetic resonance spectroscopy to study the neurochemistry of the brain and the development of novel analytical approaches to studying consciousness, including the first demonstration of the brain's small-world network properties using fMRI.

We highlight current theories about peripheral neuropathic pain and show that progress in management is contingent on targeting treatment not at the aetiological factors or the symptoms but at the mechanisms that operate to produce the symptoms. This approach will require substantial progress in our understanding of the pathophysiology of neuropathic pain, the development of accurate diagnostic tools to discover what mechanisms contribute to the pain syndrome in an individual, and effective treatments aimed specifically at the mechanisms.

This two-day course teaches skills in assessment and approaches in management of the patient with pelvic pain, and contributing factors to the presentation of pelvic pain outside of the pelvis itself. There is a strong anatomy and bio-mechanics component to the course, with insights into medical considerations by an OB-GYN and Radiologist with clinical interest in women's health imaging. Presented by Caroline Cooper, Dr Oliver Brown and Dr Amanda Woodward. For more information or to book visit.
