A deep dive into musculoskeletal pain…

In this book, Dr. Tsai aims to offer readers a wider and deeper view of osteoarthritis, soft tissue rheumatism, and osteoporosis. Musculoskeletal pain is very common, but often misdiagnosed, and, therefore, treatment can be misguided. Not all pain should be dismissed as osteoarthritis, as several other conditions exist that may be the source of pain. To clarify the subtleties of this issue to readers and health providers, Dr. Tsai grouped the chapters anatomically and emphasized the similarities and differences of their symptoms, unique locations, and different treatment options. The main goal of this book is to help prevent patients and healthcare providers from being misguided by relying on X-ray, CT scan, and MRI findings alone.

This book is broken into three parts:

Part 1 focuses on the causes and symptoms of osteoarthritis and soft tissue rheumatism. Topics are organized anatomically, discussing OA and soft tissue rheumatism in various sections of the body.

Part 2 lists some treatment options for osteoarthritis, including pharmacological treatments, dietary supplements, exercise, and regenerative treatments.

Part 3 discusses osteoporosis, going through causes, symptoms, and treatment options.

Osteoarthritis, Soft Tissue Rheumatism, & Osteoporosis was written to be easily read by anyone, no matter their level of medical knowledge. Additionally, several illustrations are included to help visualize concepts and make them easier to grasp.

Read Book Description

Myofascial Pain, Neurogenic Pain, & Chronic Pain Syndrome is the third book in Dr. Tsai’s collection.

Chronic pain isn’t always caused by arthritis…

Myofascial pain, fibromyalgia, and chronic pain syndrome are often misdiagnosed and mistreated due to physician ignorance and the lack of verifiable findings on X-ray, MRI, and other imaging equipment. Most healthcare providers and physicians focus on arthritis pain and do not realize these disorders are far more common than osteoarthritis. This misconception may be one of the important reasons the effectiveness of invasive procedures and surgeries are far from satisfactory. In this book, Dr. Tsai aims to discuss these conditions, how they can be differentiated from arthritis, and possible treatment options.

This book is broken into four parts:

Part 1 focuses on the causes and treatments of conditions in the tendons and muscles. Topics in this section include tendinitis and myofascial pain.

Part 2 explains the causes and symptoms of pain conditions in the nerves, including carpal tunnel syndrome and neuropathy.

Part 3 looks at what chronic pain is and how it works. There is also a discussion of other chronic pain syndromes, including fibromyalgia and connective tissue disorders.

Part 4 lists some treatment and management options for chronic pain, from pharmacological treatments to simple exercises

Myofascial Pain, Neurogenic Pain, & Chronic Pain Syndrome was written to be easily read by anyone, no matter their level of medical knowledge. Additionally, several illustrations and photos are included to help visualize concepts and make them easier to grasp. The primary goal of this book is to help those who may be suffering from chronic pain gain a better understanding of what they’re feeling and how their condition may be treated.
