Do you have the baggage of chronic pain? Are you struggling to keep a job because of it? Don’t fret; you’re not alone, there are millions of people in the very same boat you are. In fact, so many people are suffering with their chronic pain and job difficulties that researchers from University of Warwick’s Medical School are not leading a novel study to begin exploring ways to get you back to work. Keep reading to find out what their study is showing.

Key Takeaways:

  • Working with employers they will design a package of care and support for people who are out of work because of chronic pain.
  • They aim to overcome the obstacles to getting back to work faced by both chronic pain patients and employers.
  • The Warwick team will adapt this type of package of care so that it can be also used for people with chronic pain.

“Chronic pain is seldom confined to one part of the body which this may present unique challenges to patients.”
