The social, economic and personal cost of pain, and the failure of much traditional pain management to adequately address this problem, has created the need for a reassessment of the nature, evaluation and treatment of pain. Drawing together current research by physiotherapists, physicians and psychologists, Moving in on Pain is a collection of papers presented at the landmark `Moving in on Pain' conference held in Adelaide in April 1995.
