This study was conducted to help us understand how veterans with spinal cord injury (SCI) and other persons with SCI may differ on pain. We compared veterans with SCI to nonveterans with SCI on pain intensity, pain interference with life, how well they complete normal daily activities, and thoughts about pain. We found that nonveterans with SCI were similar to veterans with SCI in most aspects of pain, but veterans had more troubling thoughts about their pain. The results of this study are useful in helping us understand what unique problems that veterans with SCI may face.
