The first issue of the third volume of the scientific and practical journal “Pain Medicine” is offered to your attention

Science has achieved some wonderful things of course, but I’d far rather be happy than right any day.

Douglas Adams “The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy”

It is known, that pain – one of the most common complaints in the medical practice. Much knowledge and experience are required for the determining of its cause. Pain is one of the most common symptoms observed in different diseases, so the scientific journal is devoted to this problem. Sean Mackey, professors of the Stanford University, said very aptly about the problem of pain: “Pain is terrible and this is wonderful! It serves as a signal, so we do not load an injured organ and give it time to recover. Normally, this is a task of pain – to prevent and protect. To prevent and to treat is the task for doctors “algologists”. For the third year “Pain Medicine” The Journal is a discussion ground for doctors. For the third year doctors of different specialties debate about problems of pain, their diagnostics, prevention and treatment on the pages of this journal. They discuss the theory of pain, modern methods of its prevention, share modern and innovative methods of treatment, remind and discuss severe and interesting clinical cases. The team of the journal is a “collaborator” of these events for the third year. The continuation will follow and the journal will further please you with interesting materials. And I want to end with the words from the quotation “Science has achieved some wonderful things of course, but I’d far rather be happy than right any day”. And it’s a blessing to work together to solve the problem of pain medicine.
