Chronic pain affects more than 100 million people in the United States and accounts for 20 percent of outpatient visits, 12 percent of all prescriptions, and over 100 billion dollars in direct and indirect expenses. It also comprises 20 to 50 percent of patients seen in primary care.
A comprehensive pain evaluation is essential to developing an effective treatment plan. Those individuals with complicated pain pictures - particularly those who are heavily medicated - need a strong, integrated team to improve outcomes and quality of life.
