More and more patients with chronic pain and other disorders are relying on neural therapy - a treatment concept based on employing the properties of local anesthetics to regulate disorders of the autonomic system - to alleviate their symptoms. Yet there are precious few spezialized, didactic resources for medical practitioners interested in learning about this highly effective therapeutic alternative.The Manual of Neural Therapy According to Huneke offers accessible, practical information on all aspects of neural therapy as it is practiced today. Designed for use in the classroom and in the clinic, this illustrated manual comprises three sections:- Theory and Practice of neural therapy according to Huneke -- including detailed definitions of all terminology; discussions of experiments, successes, and failures of neural therapy; the scientific theory behind segmental therapy and interference fields; and practical applications.- Encyclopedia of neural therapy -- featuring an encyclopedia of conditions and indications in every anatomic region, as well as numerous case studies. - Techniques of neural therapy -- a comprehensive, substantially illustrated list of injection procedures, including detailed guidance on insertion points, direction, and depth. Distilling decades of clinical research and hands-on experience, this unique book is essential reading for practitioners of all disciplines interested in exploring how contemporary neural therapy can complement and enhance the way they practice medicine.

In Segmental Anatomy the correlations between spinal nerves and segments in skin, musclar system and bones are formidably illustrated and written. The projection areas of internal organs on the body surface area are deduced from the anatomy of the nervous system. These correlations between spinal nerves and the periphery of the body explain how acupuncture, neural, and manual therapies take effect.

Designed in atlas format, the second section includes chapters on spinal anatomy and pain signaling, techniques for injection therapy of the cervical, thoracic and lumbar spine, management of potential complications and side effects, and multimodal spine therapy. Illustrated by real-life photographs from the author's practice, each technique-related chapter guides the reader step-by-step and with great precision through the injection procedures. Highlights: Provides detailed coverage of injection therapy without the use of image guidance Features inpatient and outpatient minimally invasive spine therapy, and concomitant pharmaceutical treatments Includes essential information on contraindications and patient consent More than 400 color illustrations and photographs demonstrate the relevant anatomy, patient positioning, and accurate needle placement Designed as a practical guide and useful compendium, Spinal Injection Techniques is invaluable for orthopedists and practitioners in physical medicine and rehabilitation.

Featured as a single volume, this is a comprehensive guide to possible nerve entrapment syndromes and their management. Each chapter covers a single nerve, or group of closely related nerves, and goes over the clinical presentation, anatomy, physical exam, differential diagnosis, contributing factors, injection techniques, neurolytic/surgical techniques, treatments of perpetuating factors, and complications. Nerve entrapments can occur throughout the body and cause headaches, chest pain, abdominal pain, pelvic pain, low back pain, and upper and lower extremity pain. As an example, one of the most common forms of nerve entrapment syndrome, Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, affects roughly 1 in 20 people in the United States, and is only one of several types of entrapment syndromes possible for the median nerve. Chapters are also extensively illustrated and include 3D anatomical images. The additional online material enhances the book with more than 50 videos - at least 2 for each nerve. This enables readers to easily navigate the book. In addition to a conventional index it includes a “Pain Problems Index” for searching by symptom. Peripheral Nerve Entrapments: Clinical Diagnosis and Management is a long-needed resource for pain physicians, emergency room physicians, and neurologists.

Due to advances in spinal endoscopy, practitioners are now able to offer efficacious alternatives to open surgery to patients with low back pain, radiculopathy, and related disorders affecting the epidural space. Epiduroscopy enables surgeons to access, diagnose, and treat discogenic pain and spinal pathologies using minimally invasive techniques via direct visualization and focused intervention. Typically performed as a one-day outpatient procedure under local anesthesia, epiduroscopy provides a viable option to many patients suffering from low back pain. Starting with the history of this procedure, the authors guide the reader systematically through relevant clinical indications, radiological anatomy, the pathophysiology of spinal pain, diagnostic modalities, and the use of specialized tools. Subsequent chapters detail specific conditions and approaches, histopathologic/microbiological findings, and patient assessment and outcomes. Key Features Clinical pearls gleaned from years of hands-on experience, including preventing and managing complications. Online access to 46 step-by-step surgical videos and animations provides in-depth understanding of techniques. Nearly 600 high quality images, including procedural photos and medical illustrations delineate approaches. The use of epiduroscopy-assisted mechanical adhesiolysis, laser procedures, radiofrequency, analgesic and pharmacological therapy, ozone therapy, spinal cord stimulation, and more. This is an essential resource for trainee and practicing physicians in the fields of neurosurgery, orthopaedic surgery, pain medicine, and interventional medicine.
