September is Pain Awareness Month, when organizations like the American Chronic Pain Association (ACPA) help people understand what millions of Americans experience on an ongoing basis and how to help support those who suffer from chronic pain. Pain, while not a disease, is a serious and unfortunately common symptom arising from many different injuries and conditions.
Some diseases that are known to cause chronic pain include:
– Rheumatoid arthritis
– Multiple sclerosis
While pain is notoriously difficult to prove and detect, it can be debilitating – especially for those facing chronic pain conditions. There is a lot of stigma and misunderstanding surrounding pain and what causes it. To learn more about Pain Awareness Month, follow the American Chronic Pain Association (ACPA) online and share with your friends and family. If you or someone you love suffers from chronic pain and it is impacting your ability to work, please contact us today for a free consultation. You may be eligible for Social Security disability benefits.
