Are you suffering from persistent pain? If so, you’re not alone. In fact, nearly 100 million people in the U.S. are affected by chronic pain. That’s a staggering number garnering the attention of the healthcare community and marking September as Pain Awareness Month. Understanding more about the underlying causes of pain can help improve diagnoses, treatments and ultimately lead to pain relief.
