The Paths of Pain celebrates 30 years of pain research and management by the world's leading basic scientists and clinicians in the field. Combining history and science, it provides an unrivalled, authoritative selection of chapters that examine the problems and achievements in the topic. It looks at the way pain has been understood, investigated, and treated from before the foundation of the IASP up to the present time.The achievements of this period include the development and refinement of the gate control theory of pain in physiology, as well as enormous strides in the identification of cellular and molecular mechanisms of pain, a better appreciation of the psychological aspects of pain, the evolution of more effective analgesics, coordinated comprehensive pain clinics, acute pain services, and the improved definition of painful illnesses. The reader has the opportunity to explore a book by many hands in which the description of the advances is often provided by those who achieved them.
