  • Lynton Giles, MSc, PhD, DC, Former Director, Mutidisciplinary Spinal Pain Unit and Honorary Clinical Scientist, Townsville General Hospitial, Queensland, Australia

The new edition of 50 Challenging Spinal Pain Syndrome Cases brings together a total of 100 individual studies ranging from the common and comparatively straightforward to the more complex. Content is presented in a clear layout with details of case history, aetiology, physical examination, imaging and, when necessary, laboratory test results of patients, diagnosis, treatment and results, key points and suggestions for further reading. Comparisons between imaging and similar anatomical and or histopathological findings are used. Questions of anatomy are clarified and the cases are comprehensively illustrated with radiographs and scans to enable the reader to see the most likely nature of the pathology causing the patient's spinal pain syndrome. The problem-solving approach keeps the emphasis on the practical and corrects some common myths about spinal pain treatment. Taken together, these cases make up a book, which students, practitioners and everyone interested in the spine will want to own and constantly refer to.
