Abstract

Persistent pain is a major health care challenge. Most approaches to tackle pain involve medical treatments to relieve pain once it has become a problem. There has been little research into the role of activities that promote health and wellbeing on pain. We argue that there needs to be more research on how people living with persistent pain can continue to flourish and function with good health. We suggest that there needs to be more attention given to health promotion and community-based approaches to tackle persistent pain and that more research is needed on cultural, environmental, economic, and social factors that influence pain.
