Description: Chronic musculoskeletal disorder pain, such as head, neck, shoulder, knee, facial, joint, and back pain, is highly prevalent among Veterans and costly to treat. Some complementary and integrative health (CIH, formerly complementary and alternative medicine or CAM) therapies appear effective in treating pain and its comorbidities. This study is examining the cost effectiveness of CIH in reducing musculoskeletal disorder pain and its comorbidities among Veterans
Target audience: All researchers and clinicians interested in pain or complementary and integrative health.
