PMID: 36153085.


This article examines the occurrence of chronic pain across the human lifespan from pediatrics and adolescents through adulthood and concludes with geriatrics (>65). As a subset of the adolescent and adult age group, the article also explores the impact of chronic pain involving the obstetric population. Within the age groups and populations, we explore available information regarding prevalence, epidemiology, and impact of chronic pain surrounding each group as well as some of the common pain conditions and syndromes unique to a given group. While not focusing on treatment, the article reviews physiologic and other factors impacting treatment in a given group.
