Impact of Pain

Today, pain is one of the most common reasons Americans seek medical treatment, with back pain as the leading reason. An estimated 26 million Americans between the ages of 20-64 visit their doctor because they are experiencing frequent back pain. Other common painful conditions include:

  • Arthritis
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Osteoarthritis
  • Knee pain
  • Hip pain
  • Neck pain
  • Migraine headaches
  • Jaw and lower facial pain

Since a person can be in severe pain without any visible marks or injury, family members and others close to the person in pain may not understand what is happening. By visiting your pain specialist, you can find relief from your acute or chronic pain so that you can live a normal lifestyle once again.
