Did you know that September is Pain Awareness Month?

It is important that we raise public awareness around pain, pain management, and all the great work that pain professionals do during the month of September and beyond.

Dr. Dominic Hegarty (Clinical Director Pain Relief Ireland) supports the effort to highlight the existence of pain in our community. “Pain is a silent disease that slowly erodes an individual’s personality out if it is not brought under control”. We must all accept that pain is a real entity that is present in our families, in our community and in our workplace. It can have a long-lasting impact both physically and psychologically. For this reason, Pain Relief Ireland is happy to support the IASP campaign to highlight chronic pain.
