Zachary L. Mannes, Erin G. Ferguson, Nicole Ennis, Deborah S. Hasin, and Linda B. Cottler

demonstrating the high rates of daily pain and its negative consequences among NFL retirees, studies have yet to delineate between the physical and psychological risk factors of pain intensity in this group. Much of the older biomedical literature examined chronic pain from a physical medicine point of view
