Baseline Characteristics of a Dyadic Cohort of Mothers with Chronic Pain and Their Children.


A growing body of research has demonstrated a robust link between parental chronic pain and child pain and psychological function. Although the association between parent and child pain is strong, there are limited data to understand environmental and behavioral processes that account for the association and how this develops over time. This longitudinal cohort study was designed to understand potential mechanisms that confer risk or resilience for chronic pain among child offspring of mothers with chronic pain.
