The complaint of pain.

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


All patients with pain must be taken seriously, and both organic and emotional factors investigated. Cultural aspects, early developmental experience, and highly personal meanings may influence the individual's perception of and reaction to pain; specific psychiatric pain states may be identified as well. Treatment is aimed at curing the underlying cause of the discomfort or allowing maximal rehabilitation in chronic conditions.
