Pain Classification

 

To individualize pain treatment it is important to classify pain initially. Typically this can be done due to duration, pathogenesis, location and cause but this distinct categorization does not appreciate that severe chronic pain is multifactorial in nature. Therefore, new approaches meet the complexity of pain1.
