Chronic pain is a frequent comorbid condition after traumatic brain injury (TBI), with up to 46% of individuals with moderate/severe TBI reporting chronic pain from 1 to 30 years post-injury. Chronic pain can arise from injuries related to TBI, both concurrent injuries and directly as a result of TBI, as well as other common causes seen in the general population (e.g., back pain). Given the high rates of endorsement, exploration of both treatment utilization and barriers/facilitators to access pain treatment need investigation. Novel approaches to examining those with chronic pain may provide insights into characterizing the experience of pain after TBI as well as a strategy to compare interventions in future research.  

Learning Objectives

  • List the most frequent types of pain and the role of comorbidities in individuals with TBI and chronic pain.
  • Describe how pain and treatment can differ based on examination of extreme phenotypes.
  • Discuss possible barriers and facilitators for engagement in pain treatment for individuals with TBI.

Includes 1 ACBIS CEU.
