September is Chronic Pain Awareness Month. In the U.S. alone there are over 100 million people living with chronic pain.
Chronic pain is a pain that lasts longer than 6 months and stems from either an illness or injury to the body. Many sufferers of chronic pain also experience depression, anxiety, difficulty concentrating, and may also tend to lose days at work because of the pain.
In years past, medical doctors often prescribed opioids, anti-depression, anti-anxiety and or nerve pain medications as a sole form of pain management. Today for many sufferers, pain management is more of a multi treatment plan consisting of both modern medicine, alternative treatments, mental health therapy, nutrition and exercise.
