September is National Pain Awareness Month (PAM) across the United States. First declared in September of 2001, it was created to increase awareness about the effects of pain and to educate citizens about the advanced treatment options available to help alleviate pain. One of the goals of National Pain Awareness Month is to foster awareness, and in doing so, open the lines of communication in our local communities so that pain can be better understood and managed. We need to rethink how pain is considered and how pain is treated.
At MAPS, our Pain Awareness Month goals are simple! We want to help educate the community about acute and chronic pain and the advanced treatment options that are currently available to treat painful conditions.
