Millions of Informal Caregivers at Risk for Chronic Pain, Injury Trying to Help Disabled Family Members

Ohio State University Center for Clinical and Translational Science

According to a recent report from AARP’s Public Policy Institute, unpaid, informal caregivers provide almost half a trillion dollars’ worth of support to individuals with disabilities each year. These caregivers - usually family members - often perform physically-demanding tasks with little or no training, which can result in muscle strains and chronic pain. With very little data on the physical impact of informal caregiving, new research is identifying which tasks caregivers say are the most physically demanding and where they experience the most body pain. Researchers are using the information to develop interventions to help keep caregivers and their loved ones safe and healthy.
