Pediatric Pain Rehabilitation Treatment Outcomes for Chronic Noncancer Pain


About this study

The purpose of the study is to learn more about adolescent and young adults' experience with chronic pain. In particular, we are studying factors which lead to pain-associated disability and factors which predict decreased disability during and after participation in a three-week intensive treatment program. In addition to gathering information from the young people with chronic pain, parents are also asked to give their perspective.
