eToimsŪ for Healing Acute & Chronic Pain
Acute pain is defined as pain lasting for less than three months, while chronic pain can be a debilitating, lifelong disease that impairs an individual's ability to live a normal, functional life. Chronic pain affects at least 65 million people in the U.S. (with some estimates ranging as high as 100 million people), with 80% of the overall population experiencing back pain at some point in their lives. Chronic nerve-related muscle pain conditions include neck pain, shoulder pain, middle, upper, & lower back pain, fibromyalgia, myofascial pain, spinal stenosis, tendonitis, whiplash, musculoskeletal pain, degenerative disc, and other diseases. It is believed that chronic pain costs the U.S. economy $100 billion in lost annual productivity.
