Chronic Pain Epidemiology

This chapter presents an overview of discussions in Chapter 18–21. It discusses the diseases contributing to population levels of chronic pain and the impact of pain on chronic disease outcome. It shows that the presence of many chronic diseases is linked to a prevalence of chronic pain higher than in the general population. Prevalence estimates of chronic pain in relation to specific diseases vary from study to study and are likely to reflect differences in definition. However, in studies which have compared people with different diseases, and used a single instrument to do so, prevalence estimates are generally reported to be similar between conditions.

Keywords:   chronic pain, chronic diseases, population levels, disease outcomes, pain prevalence
