With an easy-to use, templated format, you’ll have Dr. Waldman’s preferred approaches right at your fingertips.

  • Accurately diagnose and treat common pain syndromes by following a step-by-step approach that progresses from signs and symptoms through physical findings, laboratory and radiographic testing, treatment options, clinical pearls, and diagnostic codes.
  • Practice with confidence by consulting with Steven D. Waldman, MD - author of numerous groundbreaking pain management references - as well as a team of leading international authorities.

  • Quickly and easily find the information you need thanks to highly templated chapters that explore signs and symptoms, physical findings, laboratory and radiographic testing, treatment options, clinical pearls, and diagnostic codes for each pain syndrome.

  • Ensure proper reimbursement with comprehensive coverage of insurance coding information.
  • Avoid potential pitfalls in diagnosis and treatment by referring to "Side Effects and Complications" sections in each chapter.
  • See, identify, and diagnose patients’ issues with help from clinically relevant illustrations that connect pain syndromes to clearly labeled anatomic illustrations.
  • Effectively apply the latest techniques and approaches with 29 new chapters covering subarachnoid hemorrhage, adhesive capsulitis, iliopectineal bursitis, discitis, and more!

To Tillie Waldman ……… . Devoted mother, grandmother, and lover of animals, antiques, and dining out!
To help practitioners move beyond the constraints of our common diagnostic construct is the motivation for Atlas of Common Pain Syndromes. The first contemporary pain management text to focus on pain diagnosis rather than treatment, the first edition of Atlas of Common Pain Syndromes was in a way a “coming of age” text for the specialty of pain management. In fact, the editors at Elsevier and I seriously questioned whether a bunch of “needle wavers and pill pushers” would have any interest in actually diagnosing pain as the focus of the specialty. Our fears were unjustified because both Atlas of Common Pain Syndromes and Atlas of Uncommon Pain Syndromes have found their place among the best-selling textbooks on the subject of pain. In the totally revamped third edition, we have included:
• Eighteen new chapters
• A completely refreshed full-color art program that emphasizes the anatomic relationship with the actual pain syndrome
• Greatly expanded physical examination sections with many new full-color photographs and illustrations to make it easier for the clinician to render the correct pain diagnosis
• More extensive use of radiographic imaging, including many new ultrasound images acknowledging the emerging role of this imaging modality in the diagnosis of painful conditions.
And, for the first time, the user can access the entire contents of the book on Expert Consult at .
Recently, a medical student told me that, after several weeks of confusing diagnoses, she was finally diagnosed with pertussis. Now keep in mind that we are located in Kansas City, not Bangladesh. I asked several questions. “Were you immunized as a child?” Yes. “Had you recently traveled abroad?” No. “What was the pertussis like?” Horrible! Having never seen a case of pertussis, I then asked the most obvious question. “How was it diagnosed?” The student initially thought that she had picked up a bad case of bronchitis on her pediatrics rotation. She took a Z-pack and completed a course of Avelox. She went to the student health service on two separate occasions, and both times the doctor concurred with the working diagnosis of bronchitis or early pneumonia. A subsequent trip to the local emergency department yielded the same diagnosis. Her admitting diagnosis to the intensive care unit was for respiratory failure. Antibiotics were given, and breathing treatments administered. Finally, a second-year medical student suggested that perhaps all this coughing was the result of whooping cough, which she had just read about in her medical microbiology class. At first, everyone laughed and rolled their eyes …… . Two beats …… silence and then …… the correct diagnosis was made.
You may be wondering why I include this story in the preface to a book about pain management. It seems to me that we, as medical practitioners, continue to limit ourselves to specific, personalized constructs that each of us devise to diagnose painful conditions. Within our constructs is the frequent admonition against hunting for zebras when we hear hoof beats, to move toward the center of the bell curve, to cleave to evidence-based medicine. However, if taken to extremes, these parameters limit how we process our patients’ histories and the scope of our diagnoses. It is my hope that the third edition of Atlas of Common Pain Syndromes will continue to help clinicians recognize, diagnose, and treat painful conditions they otherwise would not have even thought of and as a result provide more effective care for patients in pain.

I want to give a special thanks to my editors at Elsevier, Pamela Hetherington and Sabina Borza, for their keen insights, great advice, and amazing work ethic.
