Chronic pain is the number one cause of disability, affecting 50 million people in the United States alone.
Sometimes called the “invisible disability,” chronic pain is poorly addressed in medical education even though 1 in 5 American adults are affected by it, and it’s one of the leading reasons people seek medical care.
The Disease of Chronic pain
Acute pain is your body’s way of communicating with you that something is wrong, and pain from an injury or surgery will dissipate once your body has had time to heal.
Chronic pain, which can continue for years, occurs when your body continues to send pain signals to the brain when there is no overt cause.
This pain can greatly impact your mobility, career path, daily activities, family relationships, and mental and physical health.
84% of chronic pain patients are unable to work consistently outside of their homes, and prescription opioids continue to be a common treatment method for those in pain despite causing 17,000 overdose deaths annually.
