Pain Around The World


Here’s an article about the prevalence of pain in New Zealand.

New Zealand Article

I posted it for 2 reasons. One is my friend Bronnie Thompson an OT from New Zealand is quoted. Two is it explains how big and widespread this problem is. The numbers are 1 in 5 people in New Zealand live with pain. This is similar to many other developed countries including the US. So if you are dealing with pain you aren’t alone. It also shows how complex the problem is. People want answers and fixes, but they aren’t always easy.

If you are dealing with pain you will have a challenge. Talk to someone who will listen. Try to see through the easy answer and quick fixes.
