September is Pain Awareness Month and September 4-7 is Pain awareness week. The website www.theapca.org is a great place to go for videos, articles, and information to become more knowledgeable about conditions as well as how to deal with and treat your pain. The website has list of conditions from A-Z and will give information, communication tools and videos to go along with all the information displayed about the condition.
However, there is one video that is well worth watching right away, Consumer Guide to Pain Medication and Treatment. This video has interactive links to the role of medication, pain types, medication used for chronic pain, safety, and making the medication decision. Knowing about medication and what is appropriate to take for pain or whether or not there is a holistic approach is very beneficial now a days when so many people think that medication is the route to go, right away.
