September is Pain Awareness Month. The focus is on chronic pain. The following infographic from The U.S. Pain Foundation has the facts.
According to the U.S. Pain Foundation: “If you are one of the 50 million Americans who live with chronic pain, you may feel like you’ve hit a dead end with treatment options. But while there is no easy fix for chronic pain, there is a wide range of therapies and strategies that can help reduce its severity and its impact on your life. Mypainplan.org is here to help you learn about all of the options for relief and identify a personalized list of treatments to try, or to discuss with your health care provider.”
My Pain Plan is a tool that helps you see all of the possible pain treatments that are available. You can pick which ones you would like to learn more about, and add treatments that are currently helpful. Your Pain Plan can then be printed out and used to remind yourself of things to try when your pain is flaring. You can also share it with loved ones, so they have a reference when brain fog keeps you from thinking clearly.
