    • Overview

      Painful diabetic neuropathy and post-herpetic neuralgia are among the most common neuropathic chronic pain conditions experienced by Americans. Unfortunately we are not particularly successful in controlling these complaints, and patients often suffer considerably. Participants will learn about appropriate drug and non-drug recommendations to improve the pain associated with these two chronic pain conditions.
