Time and time again, I’ve heard stories from people struggling with chronic pain and musculoskeletal issues who feel neglected by their healthcare providers.
They’ve experienced everything from doctors not believing their pain to a complete lack of long-term guidance.
The root of this issue often stems from an outdated and disconnected healthcare system, influenced heavily by insurance companies.
With chronic disease and pain now being the #1 healthcare problem in the country, it’s clear that our current approach isn’t working.
Consider this: around 100 million Americans suffer from chronic pain, yet many are left feeling helpless as they navigate a system that prioritizes profit over personalized care.
One example is meniscus surgery, which brings in $4 billion annually but doesn’t yield better outcomes than physical therapy.
It’s time for the healthcare system to pivot and address the true needs of those living with chronic pain.
How have your experiences with healthcare providers been?
