This fourth volume contains further ground-breaking and highly relevant work. Taking on the placebo and nocebo phenomenon, pain management and muscles and pain the volume yet again promotes the forward thinking and cutting edge work of the Physiotherapy Pain Association. In Part 1 a number of internationally renowned clinicians and researchers have come together to produce the first published attempt to broadly address and critically appraise the placebo and nocebo phenomenon from a clinical perspective for physiotherapists. The information and the way the material is presented should fascinate as well as challenge readers to think and work differently. Understanding the placebo fully requires a radical shift in thinking about human recovery mechanisms and the way in which treatments can be triggered to work at their most efficient. Part 2 takes on three more pain management topics - the integration of pain management approaches and techniques for individual therapists working with individual patients or in 'out-patient' settings; information giving for patients and addressing the taxing problem of improving fitness in patients with chronic pain related incapacity. The last part is devoted to some major issues surrounding the relationship of muscles to pain. Many current beliefs about the role of muscles come under scrutiny and some are constructively challenged by new proposals. Perhaps the most exciting aspect of the work presented here is that physiotherapy, if it fully integrates the information provided into clinical practice, should be increasingly recognised as the central and essential component of modern management of musculoskeletal pain states. The Topical Issues in Pain series derives from the work, study days and seminars of the Physiotherapy Pain Association and is written by clinicians for clinicians.
