Complementary Therapies for Pain Management

Edzard Ernst


Pain is the single most common reason for patients to consult a

CAM practitioner. This essential new book provides concise evidence-based information on complementary and alternative medicine (

CAM ) in relation to pain. Each section has a clear and accessible design to enable quick decision-making, and includes an analysis of the most up-to-date research available.


“We have to thank Edzard Ernst for his achievement in bringing together a comprehensive summary of the evidence that exists within many important areas of complementary medicine.” George Lewith. Pain News. Autumn 2007
