Abstract

Date Presented 4/19/2018

The study surveyed 67 older adults about the impact of pain on daily activity. Pain was found to significantly affect walking, sleeping, mood, and enjoyment of life. Participants noted that walking, overuse, and weather made pain worse and that walking, sitting, medication, and rest decreased pain.
