Abstract

Within my research paper, my goal was to take an in depth look into the development, experience, and treatment of chronic pain. Information found in the paper includes (but is not limited to): the physiological breakdown of pain, causes, symptoms, statistics, views of pain through different medical models, treatment types, and sociological and psychological factors influencing pain. In order to research the topic, a variety of sources were used including: online periodicals and government websites, web pages, printed books, information taught in classes, and personal experience while working in a physical therapy clinic. My research has led me to many findings about the complexity and nature of chronic pain as well as the methods used to treat it.
