Abstract Even clinicians who keep up with the research literature on pain mechanisms may find themselves uncertain when trying to bring these new theories down to practical application for a patient with pain. The areas of dysfunction to be attacked should be systematically outlined, a complementary set of treatments be decided on, and follow-through be done in a reasonable number of visits. Physicians must also know when to refer a patient who goes beyond their own assessment and treatment skills.
