The treatment of pain cuts across all specialties. While some will take a far greater interest in the treatment of pain than others, every physician must have some reasonable skill in its treatment. This handbook has two objectives. First, it reminds the physician of some options in treating pain, whether he uses them himself or refers patients to specialists. More importantly, however, it emphasizes an option that is extremely effective but underutilized, and which is also well within the skill of most physicians: nerve block.
