AIM OF e-algos.com

With the use of modern technological means, this internet portal constitutes the first integrated effort in Europe for informing the public and raising the awareness of State agencies and bodies concerning the issue of chronic pain.
It was created in order to:
• inform,
• orientate,
• inspire
patients suffering from subacute and chronic pain and spine conditions, so that they take the right steps to resolve their problem and continue their struggle against pain with optimism and self-confidence. We believe that providing high quality education to the public will substantially help patients find the specialist physician according to the case, cooperate better with their therapist physician and, therefore, render therapies much more effective, all this with no commercial bias at all.


With the use of written text and audiovisual means, this portal provides information by describing and analysing:
• chronic painful conditions and syndromes,
• their diagnosis
• their treatment with
a) pharmaceutical agents
b) specialised interventional techniques
• simple exercises for a healthy spine
• nutrition advice

Written testimonies and interviews of patients with chronic pain are projected in a video form, with the aim of inspiring other people suffering from chronic pain to assert their right for a better quality of life.
By listening to the portal patient community, individuals suffering from chronic pain and their relatives have the potential to get out of their loneliness and isolation and communicate one with another by exchanging experiences and viewpoints concerning issues of chronic pain and their treatment.

Interviews and articles by expert scientists of the field will be informing the public about the latest developments in chronic pain and pain therapies. People of Art and Culture will express their own opinion about pain, the “most remorseless tyrant of humanity”, in an effort to trace out a national strategy against it.
