Special Issue "Chronic Pain and Headache"
A special issue of International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health (ISSN 1660-4601). This special issue belongs to the section "Health Behavior, Chronic Disease and Health Promotion".
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (31 August 2020).
Interests: headache; migraine; neuropathic pain; chronic pain; myofascial pain syndromes
This IJERPH Special Issue on “Chronic Pain and Headache” will focus on these two problems by bringing together experts who present evidence-based discussions of the mechanisms underlying chronic migraine headache, chronic tension, and daily headache, and new treatment modalities for these conditions, including the new medications that target calcitonin-gene-related-peptide (CGRP) and neuromodulatory devices. Chronic pain as an illness with its own consequences of physical and psychological features and chronic widespread pain will round out the articles in this Special Issue. This timely discussion is highly relevant, as chronic pain and headache have become predominant problems in general medical and specialty clinics, and as new treatments are being developed to address and avoid the problems of adverse drug effects, of medication overuse headache, and of opioid-related addiction and mortality.
Assoc. Prof. Dr. Robert D. Gerwin
