Depend on Worldwide to Manage Your Clinical Trial for Pain Therapy

The scientific community consolidates pain into just a few categories – acute vs. chronic, nociceptive vs. neuropathic – and a considerable amount of research is conducted for those categories. But pain, as individuals experience it, does not always seem to present itself with that framework in mind. Why do some people develop complex regional pain syndrome? Why do others experience hyperalgesia? Why do certain approaches to pain – from acupuncture to mirror therapy to placebo – seem to work as well as they do to alleviate pain?

Clinical research focused on pain and nontraditional pain therapies is expanding. At the same time, this research poses unique challenges – in terms of qualified practitioners of a particular technique, for example, or in terms of the facilities where clinical trials can take place. Other challenges, from language issues to ethical issues, abound.
