Pain Free during Pain Awareness Month

Pain Awareness Month

September is Pain Awareness Month. A recent study has shown over 100 million Americans suffer from pain. The American Chronic Pain Association (ACPA) established September as Pain Awareness Month in 2001. Since then, numerous organizations have given their effort to increase public awareness on all aspects of pain and pain management.


A multicolored “pain warrior” bracelet is being used as a symbol for this awareness. The U.S. Pain Foundation developed the pain warrior bracelet as campaign to unite, strengthen, and encourage the pain community to keep fighting for proper care. The multiple color rainbow of the bracelet helps to symbolize unity and our resilience to overcome, our ability to face adversity, and our courage to continue living.
