(NAPSI)-Singer, songwriter and patient advocate Naomi Judd has joined the national education program Partners Against Pain® to speak up for those living with pain, an often devastating condition that affects 75 million Americans-more people than diabetes, heart disease and cancer combined.
In many cases, managing pain requires an integrative approach that combines prescription medications with complementary techniques such as physical therapy, acupuncture and massage. Since each person’s pain is unique and different, Judd is encouraging people with pain and their caregivers to learn as much as they can and advocate for themselves and their loved ones to get proper care.
An integral part of Partners Against Pain® is an informative Web site with tools and content to help people with pain, their caregivers and health care professionals better understand the condition. The site-which can be accessed at www.partnersagainstpain.com-offers a range of information about various painful conditions including arthritis and cancer, as well as pain assessment and measurement tools, and links to pain education and advocacy groups.
