According to the Institute of Medicine (IOM), approximately 100 million adults in the United States suffer from common chronic pain conditions.1 And pain management has become the number one reason patients seek medical care.
It is for these reasons that the annual Partners Against Pain Award was established. The recipient of this $10,000 award is an osteopathic physician, center or program that has made great strides in the field of pain research, management, or improving the quality of life for people living with acute and/or chronic pain.
The application process is closed for 2012. Congratulations to the 2012 Award Winner!
