Chronic pain is incredibly common. If you are suffering from chronic pain, you are not alone! More than 100 million adults suffer from chronic pain.
Defined as ongoing or recurrent pain lasting beyond the usual course of acute illness or injury or more than 3 to 6 months adversely affecting an individual’s well being. Chronic Pain is the #1 reason Americans access the health care system. It’s a leading cause of disability and it is a major contribution to health care costs.
In fact, adults suffering low back pain are three times more likely to be in fair or poor health, and more than four times as likely to experience serious psychological distress as those without lower back pain.
Because the impact of chronic pain is dramatic, you may recognize that there are seemingly unrelated symptoms occurring in your life. Depression, trouble concentrating or sleeping, and a low energy level are just a few examples.
