Prevalence of chronic or severe pain in American adults

19 agosto 2015

Nearly 50 million American adults have significant chronic pain or severe pain, according to a new study. The findings also showed that half of individuals with the most severe pain still rated their overall health as good or better, and there were associations between pain severity and race, ethnicity, language preference, gender, and age. Women, older individuals, and non-Hispanics were more likely to report any pain, but Asians less likely.
