People's Campaign Launches Revolution in Health Care to Prevent Chronic Pain. The $500 Billion Reward! Prevent chronic pain and we all win this!
The $500 Billion Reward! Prevent chronic pain and we all win this!
MINNEAPOLIS, Sept. 3, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- The People's Campaign for Preventing Chronic Pain lead by the International MYOPAIN Society and the National Fibromyalgia and Chronic Pain Association will begin this week to support preventing chronic pain and, in the process, start a revolution in health care. The Campaign encourages all health professionals to adopt a transformative care model – one that integrates self-management training of patients with evidence-based treatments. Since the Campaign is about people taking charge of their health and healthcare, the Indiegogo crowding funding platform at http://igg.me/at/preventingpain will launch the campaign today.

"This Campaign is about changing our whole approach to chronic pain," Dr. James Fricton explains. "By training people to make simple lifestyle changes that cause persistent pain, long-term treatment success improves dramatically. Self-management training is an essential component of care. Every health professional needs to integrate it into every treatment plan to achieve transformative care and not just palliative care."

The Campaign provides engaging personalized on-line training toolkits as a Perk for contributing. The toolkits are available for individuals, health professionals, and employers to help everyone learn how to prevent chronic pain.  Initial results show 93% of participants who participated in the on-line training believed it changed their life. "This course is one of the most generous offerings that I have ever encountered. There is so much life-changing, life-affirming information available to anyone who wants it, is rare and amazing. I am VERY grateful for it."



The Campaign addresses the "Big Elephant in the Room" of Health Care. Chronic pain, including back pain, headaches, neck pain, jaw pain or others are #1 reason for seeking care, #1 cause of disability and addiction, and #1 driver of health care costs, costing more than cancer, heart disease, and diabetes.  Addiction to pain killers lead to more deaths than motor vehicle accidents. Chronic pain costs the United States alone over $500 billion in health care and lost work. This is equivalent to 25% of all health care costs and 5% of the gross domestic product. The personal impact in terms of suffering, loss of function, disability, depression, and addiction is incalculable.  If we want to reform health care, we must focus on preventing chronic pain.

This global campaign has three goals:
  1. Expand education with on-line Training Tool-kits to educate consumers, patients, employees, and health professionals and transform healthcare so that every person learns how to prevent chronic pain.

  2. Expand research with Research Toolkits to connect health professionals with patients and researchers to better understand causes and treatments for chronic pain.

  3. Expand advocacy with Media Toolkits to spread the word about the importance of preventing chronic pain and how we can transform health care for all.
