Pain affects quality of life and it's important for the individual who experience chronic pain to find strategies to prevent or reduce pain. In some situations pain can't be reduced and the individual has to master pain by learning to live with it. Pain can lead to a loss of functions which may change one's roles both in relation to the family as to colleagues, for example sick leave from work.
Limited evidence is available on the effects of interventions to sick-listed citizens with chronic musculoskeletal pain.
