September Focus - Pain Awareness
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, 50 million Americans suffer from chronic pain, and it affects more people than diabetes, heart disease and cancer combined. For pain relief, many people have turned to prescription opioids, which carry a serious risk of addiction, abuse, and overdose, in addition to several side effects.
AMTA is proud to be leading the conversation on massage therapy as an alternative to opioids for pain relief. We are dedicated to this issue, investing membership dollars back into the profession for research, advocacy and promotion of massage for pain management.
AMTA has several resources for you to incorporate into your practice. Below you'll find informative resources for both you and your clients!
AMTA is the largest nonprofit, professional association serving massage therapists, massage students and massage schools.
We're the only member-driven organization working to meet the diverse needs of all of our members and their hopes for the profession - This is why we're the most trusted and respected name in massage therapy.
