The Canadian Pain Coalition recognizes that pain-related words are often confusing and difficult to understand. To assist our members, families, and friends we have identified the key terms that appear on our site that we feel require more explanation and definitions. The words that are defined will appear with black text on a yellow background. To see the definitions for these words, simply click the word and a pop-up box with the definition will appear.
We hope that these definitions assist you in gaining additional knowledge on pain, its treatment, and management. If there are any additional words you would like defined, please write to us at: email@example.com.
