Understanding Chronic Pain

Chronic pain has become one of the most debilitating medical conditions that our country deals with in today’s day in age. Every year there are millions of dollars that are sunk into researching and treating Chronic pain, and this is not counting the millions of dollars that are lost in workman’s compensation claims and sick days throughout the year. Our treatment methods have been less than successful, and the “pain-masking approaches” have even began to cause deeper problems of their own such as drug-dependency and addiction. Research compiled by TheGoodBody.com shows that 100 million Americans suffer from Chronic pain, and 1 in every 10 people have experienced pain every day for three months or more. Because chronic pain can have so many different causes like previous injury or repetitive stress, it can be a very tough condition to understand.
