Pain Awareness Month 2021


The U.S. Pain Foundation sought to raise awareness on the critical issues facing 50 million Americans living with chronic pain during Pain Awareness Month.

The initiative, #PainCounts, shows the devastating burden of chronic pain and the impact it has on real people. Each day, we shared a fact about chronic pain on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram, along with one article a week that focused on different aspects of chronic pain awareness and care. We also hosted a live event that brought together experts in the field of pain care and patients to discuss why #PainCounts.

On this page, you’ll find all the articles we published, source information for each #PainCounts daily fact, and more.
