Anyone who suffers from migraines, headaches, back pain and other chronic pain particularly wants to know where targeted help can be found locally. As a new guide for a modern care landscape, Prof. Dr. Hartmut Göbel, chief physician at the Kiel Pain Clinic, has put together a pain therapy guide for Schleswig-Holstein for the first time. The new information portal can be found on the Internet at www.schreitherapie-sh.de Prof. Dr. Göbel ( https:// pain clinic.de ) explains the background to the new service at the Kiel Pain Clinic: “It often takes many years until patients become aware of modern treatment options and therapy centers. In order to find specialized practices and clinics in Schleswig-Holstein quickly and specifically, we have now compiled the addresses for the first time.” The pages provide an overview of outpatient and inpatient treatment options for chronic pain. Addresses and information on coordinated and networked pain therapy care in Schleswig-Holstein can be found. Information on palliative medicine and hospices in Schleswig-Holstein is also provided. Up-to-date information on self-help groups and advice centers provides targeted assistance to those affected and their relatives. Many people suffer from pain every day, even though acute triggers seem to be missing. Pain is a warning signal from the body about an illness, an injury or even just a wrong movement. But around 400,000 citizens in Schleswig-Holstein suffer permanently from migraines, headaches and other chronic pain. This pain is not a symptom, but rather an independent illness and requires special therapeutic procedures. Modern pain research and contemporary pain therapy have made great progress in recent years. Today, no one has to accept chronic pain passively and without confidence like an unchangeable fate.
