Survey

We asked Americans about how they manage their pain and medical conditions ... see what we found out!

Welcome. Our goal in this survey was to learn more about how people view medications and alternative treatments in helping heal their long-term chronic pain and medical conditions. Below the infographic section is the full 33 question survey. Because there are so many interesting points to consider from the data, we want to empower everyone to be able to draw their own conclusions.

What is crystal clear from the survey data is that Americans are taking their health into their own hands and a majority are researching and looking for treatments other than taking medications. Wishing all of you good health.
