Understanding the predisposing factors that confer a greater risk of developing chronic pain is an essential step in pain prevention and management. This chapter focuses on current theoretical models that can inform prevention of paediatric pain and disability. We review the literature on known risk/protective factors, markers, correlates, and prognostic factors for the transition to chronic pain and disability across a variety of pain conditions. We distinguish between primary, secondary, and tertiary levels of pain prevention and discuss the clinical implications of this distinction.
