Change in mean daily pain intensity score [ Time Frame: Baseline to Week 4 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Participants will be selected based on their medical history and clinical examination.

Efficacy of the treatment (i.e., reduction of pain) will be evaluated with the 11-point numeric rating scale (NRS), where 0 represents no pain and 10 represents "pain as bad as you can imagine".
