Book Description
Selvaratnam, PJ et al. 2009 Headache, Orofacial Pain and Bruxism; Diagnosis and multidisciplinary approaches to management.  Elsevier, Edinburgh. Hard cover, 383 pages

Patients with headache, orofacial pain and bruxism frequently provide a clinical challenge for practitioners.  There are many structures associated with problems in this region and the assessment and management of pain, impairment and disability is complex.  Thus patients may call on any of a number of health practitioners for diagnosis and treatment.

Contributors to this book regularly encounter these patients and have been drawn form a range of disciplines.  They offer collective knowledge and understandings gained from years of clinical experience and describe management strategies based on evidence-informed clinical practice derived anatomical, physiological, and biomechanical concepts.

The book provides the theoretical and clinical information required to appreciate the role of each discipline and encourages a multidisciplinary collaborative approach to comprehensive management.  It has been written by clinicians for clinicians and provides a clear clinical companion.

Features:
  • extensive section devoted to accurate evaluation and diagnosis
  • chapter covering recognition of conditions requiring urgent medical attention

  • contributions from medicine, physiotherapy, chiropractic, osteopathy, integrative medicine, dentistry, psychology, and psychiatry
