suffering from pain, it is important to recognize three common but false myths
about chronic pain:
1. Patients with chronic pain are easy to manage.
2. Chronic pain is easily relieved with just a pill.

primary care physicians, although most medical schools provide little background
for dealing with these often complex patients. Patients with chronic pain

chronic pain generally requires assessment and treatment of pain, associated
