PainRelief.com Interview with:
Dr.-Ing. Marcus Komann
Jena University Hospital
PainRelief.com: What is the background for this study?
Response: A lot of non-pharmacological methods (like relaxation, cold packs, prayer and so on) for post-operative pain relief are used in today’s hospitals. There is also some literature out there on this topic. However, the literature mostly concerns single methods and very specific patient groups. Further, for most methods, the literature is not clear on the pain soothing effects.
We looked at a real-life registry to study the effects of a large number of such methods on a big sample of patients.
