In the practice of TCM, there is no complaint more common than pain. This text describes the treatment of pain syndromes according to the standard of care practiced among the professional Chinese medicine doctors in modern China. Since modern TCM in China commonly exists in an integrated environment, the topics include both patient-centered complaints such as "headache", and Western designations such as "thoracic outlet syndrome". In either case, the complaint immediately gives way to the most relevant information a practitioner needs including possible patterns and their pathogenesis, treatment principles, and herb prescription and acupuncture treatment. Following the needs of the professionals, learning opportunities are owned thanks to copious case studies written by experts in the field of pain management and internal medicine. Chapters then target students studying TCM with discussions that provide a deeper consideration of the topics. Each chapter also features multiple choice questions that challenge and assist in memorization.
