Abstract

The distinction between adolescence and young adulthood is not always clearly delineated in terms of physical and psychological maturity. Thus, in looking at issues of life transition as conceptually related to pain in young adults, there is overlap both with adolescence and middle age. Functioning as a young adult brings with it many first experiences (career and marriage) with new responsibilities and accompanying increased levels of stress. First, this chapter will look at prevalence rates of pain at common locations for individuals across this age interval.
