“There are more chronic pain sufferers than diabetics, stroke and cancer patients added together. In 2012, the American Academy of Pain Medicine published figures that showed 27 percent of reported pain was backache, 15 percent was neck pain, 15 percent was for severe headaches and 4 percent for facial pain. The same publication stated that among chronic pain sufferers, 86 percent report poor sleep, 75 percent report depression, 74 percent complain of low energy, 70 percent report poor concentration and 59 percent complain of decreased enjoyment of life.

A complaint of pain in itself may bring friends and sympathizers. We have all experienced the bumped knee or twisted ankle, the bad headache or toothache. The pain of labour is history once the cry of the baby is heard. The jaw will feel better once that rotten tooth is pulled. Imagine those pains continuing for weeks, months…… years. Scientific research and clinical studies have shown that pain can drive you crazy. And pain can kill! How? You may ask.”
