Diagnosis and Treatment of Centralized Pain and Neuroinflammation

Chronic pain may centralize in the spinal cord and brain leaving the patient with constant, neuropathic pain. The mechanism of this development is microglial activation and neuroinflammation. Successful treatment usually requires a special pharmacologic regimen that includes analgesics, neuropathic agents, and agents which reduce neuroinflammation. (Recorded at PAINWeek 2016)
