Post-Surgical Pain Management Can Influence Progression to Chronic Pain

Surgery is the cause for chronic pain in nearly 1 in 4 individuals who endure persistent pain conditions. Understanding pre-operative and post-op factors that influence post-surgical pain management success may provide clues in preventing progression to chronic pain after surgery, according to research presented at the American Pain Society (APS) Annual Scientific Conference, www.americanpainsociety.org.
