Hi Karen,

Strong's text was the prescribed reading in my pain science subjects. As far as I'm aware, it's widely considered one of the best for pain science fundamentals relevant to physical/manual therapists.

Hi Karen,
I hadn't seen this book before, but I might just pick it up.
It has contributions by Wall and it's endorsed by IASP - just those credentials are enough to convince me it's good - that Luke had it as a text book is icing on the cake.

Definitely from me.

Karen, I just got this book in the mail yesterday and have a had a chance to look through it. It is seriously, in my humble opinion, the best ever book on pain, written by PTs or former PTs or teachers of future PTs, for PTs, I've seen so far - perhaps the only one outside the Topical Issues in Pain series. Thumbs high up in the treetops for this book.

The sections are laid out logically and the chapters supply a wealth of references. There is no antiscience in this book - it's all scientifically based solid info, up to date and well-organized. It's an excellent scaffolding on which to build a world-view for one's own practice. I'm deep in chapter 2 at the moment.

Honestly, I'm still baffled as to how it had escaped my notice this long. This book needs to be promoted to the max.

It sure is. I'm sure there'll be new editions of it from time to time as nw info emerges, but so far there is just the original as far as I know. I'm envious Luke that you had something this good to use in school.

Karen, when I said

I was thinking of you in particular.

To make sure we actually read it, Nic Lucas handed out photocopies of the first 3 chapters to the class.

lorimer moseley, p.108 in "painful yarns":

"Pain, a textbook for therapists (Editors Strong, J et al)
2001, Elsevier, Edinburgh. This is a pretty occupational
therapy-centric book that is aimed at allied health
professionals. I have the inside word that the next edition
will be far less OT-centric and include stuff from some of
the key thinkers in pain from across allied health. So, the
2nd edition will be a great resource."

I've had this book for quite some time. I was certain it was discussed here previously? My goal is to incorporate it into the PT curriculum at my University. Sounds like the 2nd edition will be even better!
