CPF LIVE! with Mary Gannotti: Pain Across the Lifespan
CPF Executive Director Rachel Byrne and Mary Gannotti, PhD, PT, discuss pain across the lifespan in cerebral palsy.
"People with CP have pain, probably early on, and of course, into adulthood. And we know there's this phenomenon, we're not quite sure of the physiology, some of it has to do with the physical inactivity, but it's a combination of effects that cause this accelerated aging. So in my experience in talking with adults, that around age 25 is sort of like when your car hits 120,000 miles.”
