100 million American adults live with chronic pain. That’s more than cancer, diabetes and heart disease combined. According to the Institute of Medicine, the high prevalence of chronic pain suggests that the condition is not being adequately managed. Undertreatment of chronic pain creates large costs to the healthcare system and the U.S. economy; we spend more than $560 billion in the U.S. each year on chronic pain-related healthcare costs. Moreover, chronic pain can carry significant physical and emotional burdens.

The Institute of Medicine has called for a better understanding of the impact of pain in an effort to reduce its toll on the people who suffer from it including the impact on their economic, physical and emotional wellbeing.

Pain Matters seeks to do just that. The documentary explores what chronic pain is, its individual and societal impact, and the future of pain management through the stories and struggles of six individuals living with chronic pain and their loved ones, as well as perspective from leading national experts in pain management.
