ChronicPainSite.com Foundation - 501(c)(3)
Began in June 2008 when two friends living with, or caring for a loved one with chronic pain decided to join forces to help others. There is no charge to join our website. We are eager for people of all ages, and with chronic pain of any type to unite with us and help us grow into a loving, and caring community.

Our Mission
Dedicated to providing guidance in the comprehension and management of chronic pain. We believe that the well-informed person has the ability to take charge of their pain rather than having pain take charge of them.

Our Goals
Recognizing that chronic pain is reaching epidemic proportions and must be better understood, managed and properly treated.

Being Advocates for those in chronic pain. Understanding that many are unemployed, not insured, and too many people are unable to find adequate medical help for pain relief. We want to provide information on how they may receive assistance with chronic pain issues.

Establishing and promoting a multidisciplinary approach for the treatment of chronic pain. This includes but is not limited to education thereby empowering the person's knowledge of pain medications and alternative therapies in the fight against pain.
