The Truth Hurts

The Stats on Pain in America

Pain affects millions of people every day. That’s more than diabetes, heart disease and cancer combined. Many people have experienced enough pain to seek help from their primary care physicians, and almost all of us (over 80%) have tried over-the-counter or home remedies to find relief. The good news is that most pain can be managed with treatment and therapy. That’s why we’re dedicated to researching, understanding, and helping people overcome it.
