Chronic Pain Resources- for Patients and Health Care Professionals
Welcome to our FREE resource site, dedicated to Pain Patients and the Health Care professionals that treat them.
This site was set up by a Pain Patient, with the participation and support of scientists, doctors, engineers and inventors that are all dedicated to the investigation, research and management of chronic intractable pain.
Intractable pain is described as pain that does not resolve after 6 months time, is ongoing and moderate to severe.
It is frustrating to receive a frightening diagnoses by your family practitioner or specialist and then to be told that there is not much that can be done. Pain will be a condition that you must endure and live with - the rest of your life.
Chronic Pain syndrome has been reported to be the fastest growing medical problem world-wide, more than cancer, heart disease and HIV combined. Recent statistics indicate that 7 Million Canadians and 100 Million Americans currently live with this syndrome.
The cost to healthcare and lost productivity in Canada alone
has been estimated at 60 Billion annually and in the USA,
630 Billion. On-going pain is the most misunderstood, under represented and under funded area of modern medicine. Recent cutbacks to funding of Pain Clinics further the problem.
This site is dedicated to Patient Advocacy and Health Care Professional awareness everywhere. It contains informative resources for both doctors and patients.
Our goal is to search out and provide useful news and videos and to advocate for our rights.
Information we have gathered may assist you in understanding your condition, provide some direction on how to manage it effectively, and direct you to possible resources that may educate you to achieve improved functionality.
Let us know what YOU would like to see on this site. Please tell others about us, and like us on Facebook and Twitter.
