New CDC Report Shows 52M Americans Suffered From Chronic Pain in 2022
A debilitating condition that affects millions
Chronic pain is a debilitating condition that affects millions of people worldwide. In the United States alone, approximately 20.9% of adults, or 51.6 million people, experienced chronic pain in 2021, according to a recent report from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
The report, which was based on data from the 2021 National Health Interview Survey, revealed that chronic pain was more common among women than men, with 23.1% of women reporting chronic pain compared to 18.0% of men. Additionally, the prevalence of chronic pain increased with age, with the highest rates observed among adults aged 65 years and older.
The CDC report also highlighted the impact of chronic pain on daily activities and quality of life. Adults with chronic pain were more likely to have limitations in their ability to work, participate in social activities, and perform household tasks. They were also more likely to have difficulty sleeping and experience depression and anxiety.
Chronic pain can be caused by a variety of factors, including injury, illness, and neurological conditions. It can also develop as a result of lifestyle factors such as poor posture, lack of exercise, and unhealthy eating habits. While there are treatments available for chronic pain, including medication, physical therapy, and psychological interventions, many people with chronic pain struggle to find effective relief.
The CDC report highlights the need for improved management of chronic pain in the United States. This includes increased access to pain management services, improved education and awareness about chronic pain, and greater efforts to address the underlying causes of chronic pain.
One promising approach to managing chronic pain is integrative medicine, which combines conventional medical treatments with complementary and alternative therapies such as bioelectronics, acupuncture, massage, and mindfulness meditation.
The CDC report on chronic pain in the United States highlights the significant impact of this condition on millions of Americans and underscores the need for improved management and treatment options. As researchers and healthcare providers continue to explore new approaches to pain management, it is important to prioritize the needs of those living with chronic pain and work towards improving their quality of life.
