Abstract

Date Presented 04/04/19

The purpose of this study was to quantify the impact of a comprehensive multidisciplinary biopsychosocial approach on chronic pain management and OT’s role therein. Fifty-eight chronic pain patients completed the function-focused chronic pain program. Results demonstrated statistically significant improvements (p < 0.05) in perceived functional participation, balance, strength, and decreased use of daily morphine equivalents.
