Chronic pain is a frequent problem experienced by individuals residing in Appalachia. Appalachia is a depressed geographical region and chronic illnesses and pain result from environmental factors as well as poverty and life style choices. Individual's are at high risk to develop obesity, arthritis, and uncontrolled diabetes. A true Appalachia native exhibits personality traits unique to the area. People are stoic and fatalistic thus health care professionals have difficulty facilitating life style education. Women are considered to be the nurturers of the family and consider an illness to be a character weakness. This study explored the perceptions of chronic pain of the Appalachian woman.
