dc.description.abstractChronic Pain is a growing problem in the United States. In recent years, a variety of models and therapies have been adopted to address this issue. However, additional research is needed to verify the efficacy of existing approaches. To this end, the current chart review study was designed to assess the effectiveness of an outpatient program designed to address pain, depression, and anxiety among chronic pain patients in Austin, Texas. It was hypothesized that improvement in these areas would vary based on the background characteristics of program clientele. However, through analysis using repeated measures multivariate analysis of variance (MANOVA), it was found that demographics did not play a significant role in improvement, yet there was significant improvement over the course of time. Ultimately, discovery of significant relationships between demographic variables and improvement in symptoms associated with chronic pain could lead to more tailored treatments and greater therapeutic effectiveness.
