It is estimated that approximately 30 percent of the general population of the U.S. suffers from chronic pain. That statistic translates to over 86 million people in the United States. Of those 86 million, approximately 30 million people suffer from migraine or other severe headaches. In a recent study entitled The Michigan Pain Study, the effects of chronic pain were followed. Of the patients suffering from chronic pain in the study:
- 42% say pain has affected their relationship with their spouse
- 48% have experienced depression
- 18% have overdosed on pain medications
- 10% have contemplated suicide
Besides being a drain on the finite health care resources in the country, chronic pain also has a significant impact on the economy in general. The Journal of the American Medical Association estimates the annual cost to businesses through the loss of productivity at $61.2 billion.
What is causing the pain? Typically, one or more of the following is responsible for your suffering:
- Back pain
- Neck pain

Pain is a difficult thing to manage because there is no measurement tool for it and it varies from person to person. We know how you feel.
