STUDY: ONE IN FIVE CANADIANS LIVING WITH SIGNIFICANT CHRONIC PAIN

There’s a good chance you, a family member, or someone you know, are among the four-in-five Canadians experiencing significant constant pain that prevents you – and them – from regular activities.

That according to a just released study by Angus Reid, which also found that nearly one-quarter say they have feelings that ”life isn’t worth living.”
Three-quarters say they’ve experienced chronic pain for more than 3 years, three-in-ten have had it for more than a decade.
Two-thirds say they’d be better off if care was more affordable.
