  • About this book

A landmark contribution to chronic pain literature, this contemporary text measures the intricate relationship between chronic pain and life transition events. Researchers and clinicians will appreciate The Changing Nature of Pain Complaints Over the Lifespan for its linking of life transition theories to health and illness. Drawing on nearly 20 years of research, the authors bring together the epidemiological and psychosocial aspects of chronic pain and suggest expanding options for pain management. Their coverage encompasses every stage of the human life cycle.
