Pain Quarterly is a guide for you to learn about different types of pain and the multiple treatments available. Unfortunately, many people suffering from chronic pain go undiagnosed and untreated. Most people, even most health care providers, are not fully aware of the existing and emerging options. It is my goal to inform you about chronic pain and what can be done to manage it. Whether you are the one in pain or know someone who is, too many people suffer unnecessarily. This free publication is a take home resource for you.
This edition is focused on headaches. Headaches are difficult to treat and come with many challenges. We explore options available in this issue. We also include a few previous articles (Chronic Back Pain and Is a Block a Block) to serve as a reference whereas these topics are an interest to many people at any given time. Being our summer issue, swimming is our highlighted exercise and activity to promote health. The remainder of the magazine will highlight pain syndromes and real life stories related to pain management.
