Managing Pain in the Older Adult



The older adult population is the fastest-growing segment of our society. It is estimated that by 2030, 22% of the population will be over 65 years of age. The majority of that population will have at least one chronic health condition. Over 70% will experience some form of persistent pain. The challenge for health care providers is to understand the mechanisms of acute and chronic pain as well as the physiologic changes associated with aging. Although our knowledge of aging and pain continues to grow daily, both continue to challenge health care providers. The older population poses unique health care issues and challenges. Persistent pain is under-recognized and under-treated. Providers are often hesitant to treat pain in older adults due to adverse effects and interactions of many of the treatment options.
A deeper understanding of common pain syndromes and treatments for older adults will provide a more comprehensive approach to their persistent pain.
