The effects of chronic pain, chronic illness, and physical disability in adolescence are diverse, often influencing every facet of an adolescent’s life.

Literature on chronic pain often focuses on pediatric or adult populations and does not lend information on how to provide evidence-based treatment for the adolescent in chronic pain.
