Contemporary Diagnosis and Management of Fibromyalgia®

Fibromyalgia is a complex, multifaceted syndrome that presents a major challenge to clinicians in establishing a diagnosis and in evaluating the effects of treatment. However, current research and improved diagnostic criteria are helping clinicians improve their knowledge of the fibromyalgia patient population, and new drugs better targeted to the specific pathophysiology of the condition are being shown to improve and individualize the treatment of fibromyalgia patients. These advances make effective diagnosis and management of fibromyalgia much more possible today than was previously the case.

This new guide by an expert in the field of rheumatology research examines the latest breakthroughs in our understanding of fibromyalgia and discusses recent advances in the diagnosis and management of this painful condition. 116 pages.
