Pain is common in the general population, affecting between 6 and 25% of UK children . The connection between pain and psychological wellbeing is reciprocal – with increased awareness that when pain persists it often leads to increased psychological distress and high levels of psychological distress can increase the likelihood that painful musculoskeletal conditions will either persist or develop. Helping clinicians implement psychologically informed treatment strategies and techniques offers the promise of improving patient care for people living with pain.
