Abstract

Family physicians frequently encounter patients with chronic pain, and numerous psychiatric and psychological problems are associated with the presence of chronic pain. The purpose of this review is therefore to familiarize the family physician with the most common psychiatric syndromes encountered within the chronic pain population. Some of these psychiatric syndromes inter-relate with physical findings found within the chronic pain population, and emphasis is placed on this relationship. Pain facility treatment options are reviewed and the inter-relationships between physical findings and psychiatric syndromes are utilized to generate criteria for potential referral to a pain treatment facility.
