The importance of Pain Awareness Month

SuperUser Account 0 383

September is Pain Awareness MonthHere at Southern Pain & Neurological, we know that chronic pain doesn't just come and go one month every year.

Chronic pain impacts people's lives all year long. But having a month dedicated to pain awareness is incredibly important, as it helps to raise public awareness around chronic pain — a health condition that far too many people don't fully know about.

One of the most frustrating aspects of chronic pain is that it's often not visible to others. This leads people with chronic pain to feel like they suffer alone. And it leads them to think that no one believes their pain because it can't be seen or measured.

Pain Awareness Month is designed to help chronic pain sufferers know they're not alone, and was created to educate the public, as a whole, about the pervasiveness of chronic pain.

The facts about chronic pain are staggering. According to research done by NIH:

  • One in every four Americans have suffered from pain that lasts longer than 24 hours, and millions more suffer from acute pain.
  • Pain affects more Americans than diabetes, heart disease and cancer combined.
  • Chronic pain is the most common cause of long-term disability.

Chronic pain is a health crisis in the U.S. And to make matters even more challenging, 'pain' is a complex health issue to define. There are so many types and degrees of pain—each requiring its own unique approach to treatment.

This diverse approach to treating patients suffering from pain is the foundation of our mission here at Southern Pain & Neurological.
