Dr. Hooshmands RSD Book Cover

 

Chronic Pain: Reflex sympathetic Dystrophy Prevention and Management, is the first book devoted to the subject of Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy (RSD). The book presents a new classification for the different stages of RSD and features the most comprehensive coverage of the literature on RSD and its related aspects. Qualitative and quantitative differences between natural endorphins and synthetic narcotics are described for the first time, as are long-term follow-ups on sympathectomy patients. Other topics considered include thermographic methods for the diagnosis of RSD, the role of ACTH in the management of chronic pain, and comparisons between the effects of ACTH and those of corticosteroids. The mechanism of development of RSD is clarified through an extensive collection of drawings and anatomical pictures. The book also explains why sympathectomy fails, but nerve block and physiotherapy is successful in the treatment of RSD.

Chronic Pain: Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy Prevention and Management,  is an important reference for neurologists, neurosurgeon, physiatrists, thermographers, anesthesiologists, orthopedic surgeons, interns, and students interested in the topic.

DON’T DIET: CHANGE YOUR HABITS-PROPER EATING FOR GOOD HEALTH

H. HOOSHMAND, M.D. and ERIC M. PHILLIPS

Don't Diet Front Book Cover 4-20-20

 

On February 26, 2000, Doctor Hooshmand and I started a book project about diet, hoping it would assist his patients suffering from RSD-CRPS.

He wanted to help inform his patients, so they could experience a healthier lifestyle while they were coping with their chronic pain.

Doctor Hooshmand always emphasized that changing you’re eating habits remains a healthier and more sensible choice; instead of relying on the latest fad diets. He believed that following a healthy diet along with exercise (if you can exercise) can help promote a healthier lifestyle.

This book is not solely for people living in chronic pain; it is for anyone who wants to change their eating habits and maintain a more exceptional quality of life.

I am appreciative to have worked on this significant project with Doctor Hooshmand over the years. I am pleased that I have ultimately completed this book to share his work and passion.

I hope this book will give some beneficial information to you. Happy reading!

Enjoy!

Eric
