Women's Health Week

Each year in May, beginning on Mother’s Day, we celebrate National Women’s Health Week, and this year marks the 20th year of promoting awareness for women’s health issues.

But what is Women’s Health Week? Why is it important? And what does it have to do with chronic pain relief?

What is Women’s Health Week?

According to the Office of Women’s Health, Women’s Health Week is the time of year to encourage all women to be as healthy as possible.1

Health and wellness are important factors to living a long, healthy life and Women’s Health Week is a reminder to make your health a priority and build strong habits that enable a lifetime of good health.

Simple behavioral changes can make a real positive impact on your health, such as scheduling regular health screenings, making healthy diet choices, getting daily exercise and focusing on sound mental health.

How does chronic pain impact women’s health?

According to a CDC study, an estimated 50 million U.S. adults have chronic pain and about 20 million have high-impact chronic pain, with higher prevalence of both among women.2

Women who experience chronic pain face many challenges as it can interfere with daily activities and have an impact on mood, which negatively impacts overall health.

Chronic pain is also a common cause of poor sleep, which is why many people with chronic pain do not get a good night’s rest and feel tired throughout the day.

There are several ways to treat chronic pain which can include medication, acupuncture, physical therapy, surgery and even devices and smartphone apps.
