Establishing a research agenda for investigating alternative medical interventions for chronic pain

This article describes the University of Maryland School of
Medicine's Center for Complementary Medicine Research approach
to developing an agenda for investigating alternative medical
treatments for chronic pain syndromes. This agenda includes
conducting extensive literature searches and analyses to form
a knowledge base for making clinical decisions on which
chronic pain syndromes are in greatest need of better
therapies, as well as which alternative medical therapies
offer the greatest therapeutic promise for these specific
chronic pain syndromes. To date, the Center has identified
back pain, arthritis, and fibromyalgia as the chronic pain
syndromes that contribute the greatest clinical and economic
burden to overall chronic pain statistics. Not coincidentally,
patients with these diagnoses are the greatest users of
alternative therapies. The Center has identified acupuncture,
homeopathy, manual/manipulative therapies, and mind-body
therapies as the alternative medical therapies offering the
greatest clinical potential for these three general chronic
pain diagnoses. Preliminary data from the Center's ongoing
clinical trials programs are presented.
