Chronic non-malignant pain's impact on medical costs and work-related disability.
Chronic Non-Malignant Pain is a prevalent and complex medical condition that significantly affects individuals' ability to engage in work-related activities and imposes a substantial burden on healthcare systems. This article provides a comprehensive analysis of the impact of chronic non-malignant pain on work-related disability and healthcare costs. By reviewing relevant studies and empirical evidence, we aim to elucidate the challenges faced by individuals with chronic non-malignant pain, the economic consequences for both employees and employers, and potential strategies for mitigating the negative effects of this condition on work productivity and healthcare expenditures.Author(s): Zaira Paulina*
