In the first large-scale study of its kind, a team of University of North Carolina School of Medicine researchers evaluated musculoskeletal pain outcomes after motor vehicle collision in the U.S. Six weeks after their accident, more than 70 percent of individuals reported persistent musculoskeletal pain in one or more body regions. More than one third of study participants reported pain in four or more body regions. The findings were published online January 17 in the journal Pain.
