Chronic pain affects about 1 out of every 4 people in the U.S. at a cost of about $600 billion per year. Pain has become a widespread problem that we at IWP care about improving.
To better equip injured workers through their injury and recovery, IWP has created the Patient Pain Resource for Injured Workers, which provides insight into how pain works, how to manage pain and treatment options.
There is a complex connection between mind and body when it comes to feeling pain. This resource shares information including:
- Difference between acute and chronic pain
- Cognitive behavior therapy and pain management treatment options
- Important information your family and caregivers should know
At IWP, we specialize in helping injured workers manage pain and receive the benefits and services needed to return to a productive life.
