2011-10-09  EUROPEAN WEEK AGAINST PAIN

EUROPEAN WEEK AGAINST PAIN

EUROPEAN WEEK AGAINST PAIN: “SILENT EPIDEMIC” PLAGUING TENS OF MILLIONS IN EU -- EFIC PRESENTS PLAN TO FIGHT BACK PAIN

Launching its European Week against Pain (EWAP), the European Federation of IASP® approved National Pain Societies EFIC® today called for a complete rethink of the vague dismissal of most back pain as “non-specific”. EFIC president Prof Dr Hans Georg Kress said back ache was one of industrial civilisation’s most disabling disorders. It afflicts tens of millions in the EU, but it remained a “silent epidemic” in part because of what EWAP coordinator Prof Dr Maarten van Kleef said was the “wholly unsatisfactory and unscientific” categorisation of 95% of back pain as “non-specific”, with serious consequences for how chronic cases were treated. EFIC plans an intensive year-long campaign focussed entirely on this issue. An ambitious Plan of Action is designed to make a real difference in the fight against the most widespread pain condition of our time.
