Pain Beyond Pregnancy – Izaak Magazine

The IWK Health Centre’s Izaak Magazine published a feature in their Fall/Winter 2015 issue by Melanie Jollymore on the Women’s Pain Group.


“Whether it comes in the form of headaches, joint pain, stomach pain, fibromyalgia, or pain during sex, study after study has found that far more women than men suffer from chronic pain. Researchers at the IWK Health Centre suspect pregnancy and childbirth may play a significant role in raising women’s risk of chronic pain. They’ve formed the Women’s Pain Group to learn more about women’s pain and how they can help prevent and alleviate it.”
