Clinical Features and Intervention of Patients with Chronic Non-Oncologic Pain
Chronic non-oncologic pain is a clinical process that involves a large number of people worldwide. Some clinical entities such as fibromyalgia syndrome or patients with chronic low back pain are considered to experience pain as a clinical entity in itself and not as a symptom. Pain is defined as an aversive sensory experience that includes motor, motivational, emotional, cognitive, and behavioral alterations in the face of actual or potential tissue damage. This Special Issue aims to evaluate and address clinical areas of concern that are often overlooked in patients with persistent non-oncologic pain. We want to evaluate and address specific areas such as respiratory function in patients with chronic pain, the cardiovascular sphere, blood markers, biomechanical alterations, and even the cognitive sphere (concentration tasks, memory processes, etc.). To this end, we accept any methodological design for the evaluation and treatment of these clinical areas of interest, including systematic reviews and umbrella reviews with or without meta-analytic aggregation, randomized controlled trials, observational studies, pilot studies, and even case series and case reports.
