September is National Pain Management Awareness Month. Chronic pain is experienced by 100 million American’s annually.
That’s more than diabetes, heart disease, and cancer combined. Chronic pain can cause sleepless nights, anger, irritability, and even depression.
It’s an epidemic in our country. Many people do not realize pain is an indicator of a greater problem that needs our attention.
To illustrate, you may think of an iceberg. The pain is the tip of the iceberg we can see. As a result, the real problem is the giant mass of ice that lies beneath the water.
Unfortunately, western medicine promotes prescription medication as a treatment for chronic pain.
Make no mistake, your pain is NOT being “TREATED” by prescription drugs, it is being masked and the real problem is going UNTREATED. But there are drug-free solutions.
First, why treat the symptom when we should treat the cause of our pain? Chiropractic, Physical Rehabilitation, Durable Medical Equipment, and many other drug-free treatments are available.
Bruce Lee was quoted as saying “If you love life don’t waste time for time is what life is made up of”. Don’t waste YOUR time taking prescription drugs that don’t help you get out of pain and are robing you of a real life!
Therefore, let’s rename it National DRUG-FREE Pain Management Awareness Month and live our best possible lives, drug-free and pain free!
