Pain affects every aspect of life. When afflicted with chronic pain a person suffers mentally, emotionally, financially, and physically.
- According to the National Center for Health Statistics (2006), approximately 76.2 million, one in every four Americans, have suffered from pain that lasts longer than 24 hours and millions more suffer from acute pain.
- Chronic pain is the most common cause of long-term disability.
Unfortunately, medication alone doesn’t always alleviate symptoms. Counseling addresses the mental and emotional torment of chronic pain. Lacking the ability to play with your kids, cook, clean, or even get dressed takes a major toll. Reach out for help and don’t suffer alone!
