Perceived injustice in the context of chronic pain has been operationally defined as an appraisal of the severity and irreparability of pain-related loss, unfairness, and blame. This presentation will review a growing body of cross-sectional, prospective, and experimental data to show the negative impact of injustice perceptions on the experience of pain and chronic pain-related adjustment. Processes linking perceived injustice to adverse pain outcomes will be identified. Potential avenues for clinical intervention be discussed.
