How Chronic Pain Impacts Women's Lives

Imagine missing out on work, family events, or even sleep because you're in pain. This is the reality for many women and according to a recent HealthyWomen survey, 95 percent of women say their pain affects their ability to live a full and active lifestyle with more than half saying their pain interferes with their sleep. But that's not all we uncovered. Below are the final results from our survey.


But we don't just want to report on survey findings. We want to make a difference. In an effort to educate women and health care professionals about chronic pain, HealthyWomen held a two-day Chronic Pain Summit. During this summit, we addressed current knowledge gaps and existing challenges in treating and managing chronic pain in women. We also explored cutting edge and crucial research on chronic pain, heard firsthand from women living with chronic pain, and learned about industry perspectives.
