Pain in older people: reflections and experiences from an older person’s perspective

Aran Kumar, Nick Allcock

Research output: Book/ReportOther report

Abstract

Pain is a relatively common experience during life and we are all likely to experience it at one time or another. But what happens when that pain does not go away? Persistent pain experienced when we are
young and active is unlikely to be accepted as something which is ‘normal’. Indeed, we are likely to do everything we can to ensure we
obtain the best available help and find the treatment most effective to manage the pain
