What We Stand For

DID YOU KNOW?

  • 1 in 3 people live with pain
  • Chronic pain affects nearly 100 million Americans, more than cancer, heart disease, and diabetes combined.[1]
  • 23 million Americans live with severe pain that substantially restricts their ability to work, socialize, and take care of themselves.[2]
  • Pain costs the nation up to $635 billion each year in medical treatments, disability payments and lost productivity.[1]
  • Despite the vast number of people living with pain, many in the pain community feel unheard and isolated.
  • Chronic pain is widely underfunded, misunderstood and undertreated.[1]
