Doctor explains: “Constant pain changes nerve cells”


Doctor Andreas Schlager from the Innsbruck Clinic speaks to the “Krone” about pain memory, therapies, addictions and whether cannabis is suitable for pain therapy. According to the expert, one thing above all applies: “Don’t just take medicine, but go to physiotherapy and psychotherapy.”

“Kron”: Persistent pain can make life miserable. The Austrian Pain Association speaks of 1.8 million affected people in Austria. When is pain chronic?
Dr. Knuppel: Chronic pain exists if it is constantly present for at least three months. This is the most important characteristic that the International Pain Society has defined.
