The National Institutes of Health reports that in a study there are adult Americans that have experienced pain withing 3 months of that study. Amazing. As you grow older you might experience pain.
The study also finds people experiencing pain are more likely to have poor health and use more health care. Wow. It's almost as if when you are sick your body tells you that you are sick through pain. And who would've thought someone sick and in pain is more likely to use health care than a healthy person that is not in pain. It seems to defy logic!
And get this. People that still experience pain after medication might turn to yoga, massage, and meditation to manage the pain. Wow. Doing something about pain instead of just looking at it.
I've learned a lot today. Thank you for this study.
