According to the National Center for Complementary and Integrative Health at the National Institutes of Health, over 25 million adults in the United States suffer from some degree of pain on a daily basis. An estimated one in ten Americans are suffering from chronic (long-term) pain, which in addition to impacting quality of life and the ability to lead active, healthy lifestyles for the sufferers, also accounts for billions of dollars in treatment costs and lost productivity every year.
