Chronic pain can impact many different aspects of a child's life, including their mental and physical health and their school career. Specific factors can affect how an individual responds to pain, including their genetics, personality traits and physical, emotional and cognitive loads. Identifying the factors that may be contributing to a child's pain can make treatment more effective. Treatment for chronic pain often focuses on pain science education.
