In a nutshell: This study aimed to investigate the relationship between chronic musculoskeletal pain and falls, which are common in community-dwelling older adults. Another aim was to determine the discriminative validity of the Brief Pain Inventory to differentiate between non-fallers, any fallers and recurrent fallers. The BPI was found to be useful to differentiate in such a way in clinical settings.
