Each day, hundreds of Canadians sustain a workplace injury, often experiencing acute or even chronic pain as a result. Proper treatment is essential. Living with unmanaged pain can lead to sleeplessness, depression, anxiety, diminished quality of life and isolation. 36% of non-employed persons with a pain-related disability have work potential. Sometimes all it takes is minor accommodations. #NPAW2020 #LivingWithPain

It was along the lines, when I read it, as, "Okay, this doctor is finally catching up to what drug counselors and therapists have known for years."
