"Chronic pain can result in impairments of activities of daily living, mobility, sleep and psychological function. It can adversely impact vocational and leisure pursuits. A comprehensive, multidisciplinary approach to pain management can result in early functional restoration and prevention of disability. Accurate and early diagnosis is vital to be able to address prognosis and specific treatment options that are available today and may be available in the future."
