UK survey reveals low awareness of pain treatment options

The survey, jointly conducted by Pain UK and St. Jude Medical, has shown that although 66% of people see their GP for chronic pain, the majority do not see a specialist or visit a pain clinic.

A survey, which was conducted by St. Jude Medical in collaboration with Pain UK, recently interviewed 1,614 people (1,090 general respondents and 524 chronic pain sufferers), and found that although chronic pain is quite prevalent, there is a general lack of awareness about what chronic pain is and how it should be treated.
