Treating chronic pain in children
Dr Stefan Friedrichsdorf tells us “Chronic pain in children is a huge problem. More than 8 million children and teenagers in the United States suffer from chronic pain bad enough, that they miss school.

“Chronic pain means that, following a thorough work up, pain remains beyond the expected time of healing. Meaning, many children may have had a minor, or even a big surgery, or an injury. They may have had an infection, and we would expect that they heal and the pain goes away, and in some of our children and teenagers, the pain just remains for days, weeks, months and years, until we see them in our clinic.”
