The article discusses the management of chronic pain in children in Great Britain. It is stated that pain either originates from an abnormal firing of nerve cells or an abnormal generation of sensory input. Because of this, drug therapies and pain clinics have been developed to help control the pain. Complementary therapies such as physiotherapy, acupuncture, and herbal medicines with the aid of health care professionals are also recommended.
