Restless Sleep the Strongest Predictor of Widespread Pain
According to a report from the American College of Rheumatology(ACR), “non-restorative sleep is the strongest, independent predictor of widespread pain among adults aged 50 and above.”
The report also mentions that poor sleep, cognition, coupled with poor physical and psychological health may increase the risk of pain.
Musculoskeletal pain is more prevalent as people age with up to 80% of those aged 65 and older experiencing daily pain. This requires interventions that deal with site-specific and widespread pain.
