    The experience of chronic pain has a major impact upon a person¿s quality of life and it can often limit their level of physical functioning. Therefore, it is important to have effective strategies and treatment options available to decide the best method of clinical intervention.

This module will examine each option in terms of its evidence base and clinical application.
