TCM Case Studies: Pain Management, a volume in the TCM: Case Studies series from the International Standard Library of Chinese Medicine, discusses common clinical presentations of pain syndromes. For a Western integrative health audience, the text references both TCM and modern Western medicine terms.

Representative cases for each condition provide discussions advancing the analytical thinking process behind effective TCM pattern differentiation and treatment. TCM pain disorder treatments mainly include manipulating techniques, herbal formulas, acupuncture, and Chinese prepared medicines.

Commentary and discussion, provided by the Western co-author, serve to compare, corroborate, and contrast the various approaches to diagnosis and treatment. Students of Chinese medicine will find the study questions and answers at the end of each case study to be useful aids for exam preparation and continuing study.
