Chronic Pain Focus

Chronic Pain and Children

Chronic Pain in Specific Populations

The effects of chronic pain on quality of life can be very profound, and they often differ significantly in different populations. In rendering efficient and customised care, what is more important is acknowledging the unique challenges dealt with by the elderly, children, and those with other health backgrounds.

The management of chronic pain is particularly complex in the elderly. There are multiple comorbidities in aging bodies that increase sensitivity to pain and often complicate treatment options. The medications used for pain relief may cause more side effects in older people, hence requiring extra precautions.

Children cannot always verbalise pain. Developmental, cognitive, social, and academic impairments are established and very common complications in children with chronic pain. Pediatric pain management can thus often be complicated and calls for a multidisciplinary approach to intervention, involving a pediatrician, a physical therapist, psychologist, and other specialists as needed, in order to individualise treatments.
