“Pain insists upon being attended to" CS Lewis
Over the last few years, our knowledge in all-things pain relief has grown, not least because of the health magazine that we publish, Arthritis Digest.
When it comes to pain experienced by people in the UK, the statistics are startling, and the market is growing due to the ageing population:
• 7.8 million people in the UK live with chronic pain;
• Chronic pain accounts for 4.6 million GP appointments a year;
• Pain is the second most common reason for claiming incapacity benefit, costing £3.8 billion a year;
• £584 million a year is spent on prescriptions for pain.
