Review:

This book focuses on one of the most common and thorny symptoms in the history of rehabilitation, and presents all the information with regards to pain mechanisms and management as are supported by the literature. ...From a general point of view, this is a book designed for physiotherapists, nevertheless it also appears to be a useful tool for physiotherapy students, as it presents practical information as well as well-evidenced theory. ...All in all, this is a scientific piece of work which presents valuable information to the physiotherapy educator, student and clinician, since it gathers, in a concise manner, all the well-referenced and evidence-based information that physiotherapists need for their practice. Indeed, not only does it guide them on the therapeutic protocols that should be used in order to achieve maximum potential in patients' rehabilitation, but it also stresses the importance of the collaboration of different health professionals for the effective management of pain. --Konstantina Chanou, International Journal of Therapy and Rehabilitation, February 2009, Vol. 17, No. 2

This book is the one of latest releases from the International Association for the Study of Pain (IASP). ...In essence it is a text book rather than a book to read cover to cover and comprehensively brings together the evidence regarding many aspects of pain in one volume. The chapters range from being comparatively short and presenting good quality basic evidence, such as the chapters on specific pain conditions such as CRPS, to long and more complex chapters providing very detailed explanation and evidence indeed. ...Due to presenting a differing range of detail in each chapter the book has value for both the student and specialist practitioner alike. ...Overall a valuable edition to the literature and a book to be regarded as a 'core text' on the subject of pain. --Nicholas Harland, Journal of the Physiotherapy Pain Association, Winter 2009/2010

Mechanisms...is designed for the physical therapist and effectively achieves exactly what it sets out to do: Bridge the gap in the education model regarding the understanding of treatment of pain....In my professional opinion, this book is as useful to the current practitioner as it will be to students....I highly recommend this book to anyone who deals in the treatment and management of pain, and I give my commendations to the authors and editor for creating an extremely valuable, informative text. --William Reilly, CSCS, MSPT, Care Management Journals, 2012;13(3):174-5
