This is some interesting data that I pulled from a Sunday newspaper:
Some 76 million Americans live with chronic pain
(from American Academy of Pain Medicine)
This is a higher number than which Diabetes, Heart Disease,
and Cancer have combined!
Annual cost of Chronic Pain in the U.S. is $100 billion in
health care expense, lost income and diminished productivity.
Those are some pretty heft facts
