Chronic Pain

During the month of September, we want to bring awareness to chronic pain.  Nearly 20 million Americans experience chronic pain. Chronic pain affects more Americans than diabetes, heart disease and cancer combined. Pain acts as a warning signal that notifies us that there is something wrong with the body. Chronic pain results in disturbed sleep due to pain and physical discomfort which affects the patient’s overall health and well-being.

Therefore, during this month we want to eliminate the stigma associated with chronic pain to improve care for vulnerable patients. We want to focus on these goals:

  1. Reduce stigma associated with chronic pain
  2. Reduce barriers to effective pain management.
  3. Create awareness and a better understanding of chronic pain among patients and healthcare providers.

Participate in Pain Awareness Month by sharing your story and communicating with your doctors about your pain and ways to improve or maintain the treatment. If you have any concerns, please call our office at 301-593-9800 and schedule an appointment with one of our providers.
