About the program

The Young Adult Pain Rehabilitation Program at Boston Children’s Hospital is an intensive rehabilitative program for young adults between ages 18 and 26, who have ongoing chronic pain and limitations in completing typical daily activities after they have tried outpatient treatments. These types of chronic pain can include:

As with children and teens, young adults can experience a number of challenges as a result of chronic pain. These include:

  • difficulties at school or work
  • difficulty maintaining a social life
  • decreased participation in physical and recreational activities
  • impaired quality of life
  • increased visits to health care providers

The Young Adult Pain Rehabilitation Program is similar to our existing Pediatric Pain Rehabilitation Program, which has excellent outcomes in reducing pain and improving function in children and teens over the long term.

What to expect

We take a team approach so that patients receive care from specialists in several different disciplines — all in a program that meets the needs of busy young adults. Our highly specialized and dedicated team includes:

  • physical therapists
  • occupational therapists
  • psychologists
  • recreational therapists
  • music therapists
  • social workers
  • nurse practitioners
  • physicians

We work together to provide an individualized treatment plan to help each patient meet treatment goals that emphasize restoring normal function and improving quality of life.

The program runs five days a week (Monday through Friday) from 3 to 7 p.m., with an earlier end time on Fridays. You can expect to:

  • spend several hours a week doing group and individual physical therapy and occupational therapy, depending on your medical condition
  • work with a personal trainer
  • participate in group and individual psychology sessions
  • have time for wellness training
  • learn about life skills, nutrition, and wellness
