Do You Suffer From Chronic Pain?
About 56 Million Americans today suffer from the effects of chronic pain. That’s about 20% of all the adults in the United States, and the numbers continue to rise.
What’s unfortunate for most people is that their pain could be relieved. They just don’t know where to turn for help and many unfortunate people go untreated.
The truth today is that the majority of chronic pain patients can be helped. The difficulty is finding a provider that you can turn to for help. A clinic that has multiple options available to fit the many different problems that exist.
This problem effects people of all ages, but the greatest concentration is people between the ages of 30 and 50.
