Managing Chronic Pain with Torture and Trauma Survivors

Refugee survivors of torture and trauma often present with chronic pain and general body discomfort in the form of headaches, body aches and pains, and muscle tension, without a medical diagnosis or apparent physical cause. In addition, clients from refugee backgrounds can suffer from a range of physical conditions as a result of injuries sustained from torture and other types of violence.
