Pain has many negative effects: social isolation, unemployment, decreased function, decreased quality of life, depression and even suicide. Seventy-seven percent of individuals with SCI indicate that pain always interferes with one or more of their daily activities. Eleven percent of people report that pain, rather than loss of function, is the main factor preventing them from engaging in work.
