Pain Movement and Rehabilitation Science SIG

Mission Statement

The mission of the United States Association for the Study of Pain (USASP) Pain, Movement, & Rehabilitation Science Special Interest Group (SIG) is to reduce the burden of pain through scientific advances in movement and rehabilitation research. Our goal is to unite diverse perspectives of all stakeholders–scientists, clinicians, policymakers, patients, and patient advocates–to stimulate and support the study of pain and movement and to translate that knowledge into improved pain relief and function across multiple populations. 

As a body, USASP represents individuals nationwide who collaboratively research, diagnose, and treat pain in the United States. Correspondingly, membership in the Pain, Movement, & Rehabilitation Science SIG remains open to USASP community members interested in advancing the understanding of interactions between pain and movement.
