Chronic pain can be debilitating for a person. For a General Practitioner the management of chronic pain poses a number of problems. With concerns about a spike in opioid addiction in recent years, GPs are pressed to help their patients with physical and mental techniques that can reduce their sensations of pain without resorting to addictive medication. The challenge a practitioner faces is delivering a complete recovery program and understanding the best way to manage a patient with chronic, non-cancer pain It is ultimately the quality of life of a patient that is compromised. With an increasing percentage of the elderly suffering from chronic pain, the management of pain in the elderly is also quite a challenge.
