Childhood pain


About five percent of children have moderate to severe pain, with headaches, abdominal pain, limb pain and Complex Regional Pain Syndrome the most common forms of pain. Children can suffer academically and socially as a result of chronic pain, and their families are also affected, with parents missing work and siblings marginalised.
