Chronic Pain Statistics that Reveal the Truth Behind the Epidemic
We've put together this infographic filled with real chronic pain statistics to help showcase how large the "chronic pain" issue is in the United States. From the 100 million+ who suffer from chronic pain to the over $635 billion dollars spent in the treatment of chronic pain symptoms, it affects one third of us (1 out of every 3 adults) at some point in our lives. These pain stats put real perspective on the issue of pain.
