New Delhi: In what may come as a much needed relief for the millions of Indians who suffer with back pain everyday, a set of guidelines on its management was released in the capital by a group of doctors. A joint initiative of the Indian Society for the Study of Pain (ISSP) and the Brufen Foundation, the guidelines were released Tuesday and will help doctors from diverse backgrounds to follow a uniform procedure of treating a patient, an official said.
"Back pain is an important but small component of the much bigger `chronic pain` problem in India. According to experts, every fifth adult in the world suffers from chronic pain...add to this the incidences of arthritis, neuropathic and spinal pains and also headaches and migraines, and you have a whole country in pain," said ISSP president PN Jain. Guidelines for knee pain, headaches, neck and joint pain and pain related to cancer or trauma are expected to be released soon. IANS
