This study bridges population-based and clinical cohorts to investigate early markers of adverse musculoskeletal pain trajectories. The project examines the ways that children and their caregivers use to describe the child’s pain experience, and to assesses which early features are the most useful to predict whether children are going to develop later musculoskeletal pain, including in the absence of a medical condition that can biologically account for pain.
