September is Pain Awareness Month

Updated: Sep 22, 2023

Pain Awareness Month was established in 2001 by a consortium of organizations coordinated by the American Chronic Pain Association (A.C.P.A.).[1] A major goal of Pain Awareness Month is educating the public on how to manage pain. This is an every day goal for me, Dr. Brian Lai, M.D., at Specialty Pain Care: I want you to know about the latest and most advanced treatment options there are for your pain.

With my unique Pain Unlayering Protocol (see my blog post about the Pain Unlayering Protocol for more information), I can get to the root cause of why you have pain and treat the underlying cause. It can be frustrating to suffer in pain, especially when no one seems to be giving you a clear answer as to what is going on with your body.

The CDC estimates that chronic pain affects approximately 50 million U.S. adults, and high-impact chronic pain (i.e., interfering with work or life most days or every day) affects approximately 20 million U.S. adults.[2] Let’s join together this Pain Awareness Month to raise awareness about interventional pain treatment options and how taking one small step can transform your life. Together, we can make a difference for ourselves and others who suffer from chronic pain.

To take the first step in changing your life, request an appointment on my contact page and see how I can help you get back to doing the things you love.
