Pain management clinicians will likely find this book to be of particular value as they consider expanding their scope of services to include a broader array of CAM techniques." (Felise S. Zollman, Doody's Review Service, July, 2008) "Andrew Weil praises this book as the 'definitive guide to integrative pain management.' ... Clearly, the subject is appealing. ... This multiauthored volume covers most relevant topics, from basic pain concepts to legal issues.
