A white paper reports that health recovery after a traumatic injury or the acute onset of disease symptoms is a complex process. In many cases, there is no straight line from injury to full recovery. Indeed, it is all too often the case that complications intervene to frustrate the normal recovery process, thereby contributing to the development of serious chronic pain presentations. Return to function, including a return to a “new normal”, in such cases often becomes the best measure of a successful outcome.

Facilitating positive outcomes for those who are aected by debilitating injury or illness and who are at risk of developing chronic pain requires atargeted and comprehensive multidisciplinary approach to clinically assessing the status of aected individuals when managing files.
