Global Burden of Disease discussed in the light of neuropathic pain.

Burden of Disease discussed by Dr Blyth

There is an evolving framework for measuring the global burden of neuropathic pain. This was presented at the 6th International Congress on Neuropathic Pain (NeuPSIG 2017) in Gothenburg, Sweden, from 15-18 June, 2017. The new issues of the Global Burden of Disease and The impact of neuropathic pain were presented by Fiona Blyth from Australia.

Low Back Pin for instance causes the highest disability burden of all conditions also in developing countries. Back and Neck pain in general causes the largest problem. These data are already known for years but did not generate any clear action points on a world wide base.
