Like many Americans, pain has a huge impact on your day-to-day life. If you live in constant, recurring pain, you won’t be able to live your life to the fullest. You may find that, over time, your physical, mental, and emotional health will suffer as a result of chronic pain. Worse still, you could risk addiction to or even death because of your pain medications, especially if those medications are opioids. In 2016, 50% of the opioid deaths in the U.S. were attributed to prescription painkillers
October 26, 2017, President Trump announced that America is in a state of Opioid Drug Epidemic Emergency. 64,000 people died because of opioid drugs in 2016, and 50% are because of prescription painkillers.
In 2016, 86% of 2.7 Trillion Dollars healthcare spending used to treat the symptoms of chronic diseases and mental health conditions, according to the CDC.
If over-the-counter pain pills, medication injections, physical therapy, surgery, the myriad of other remedies you can find through Google aren’t working, it’s time to try the weMED way. Instead of letting your pain manage you, let us help you manage your pain.
Let’s stop spending money on only treating the symptoms.
