U.S. Pain is asking its community to take a 22-question demographics survey. The survey takes about seven minutes to complete and covers types of pain condition, pain severity, treatment options, and more.
“We want to make sure we are effectively supporting and advocating for our pain warriors,” says Nicole Hemmenway, Interim CEO of U.S. Pain. “In order to do that, we need to understand their experiences.”
The results of the survey will be shared via the eNewsletter in the coming months. Some notable trends thus far include that most individuals live with pain due to spine, musculoskeletal, or neurological conditions; 25 percent have a condition that is considered a rare disease; 60 percent are disabled; and 68 percent have lived with pain for more than 10 years.
