Abstract

The European pain association EFIC reports that one in five Europeans suffers from chronic backache or headache, at an annual cost of € 34 billion to the economy. Some 500 million working days per year are lost due to chronic pain. According to EFIC, 75 million Europeans suffer from permanent pain. The study by Breivik et al. reports that nearly half of those affected are under 50.
