Abstract

The National Pain Foundation (NPF), a non-profit, 501(c)(3) organization, was established in 1998 to advance functional recovery of persons in pain through information, education and support. The goal of NPF is to empower patients by helping them become actively involved in the design of their treatment plan, exploring both traditional and complementary approaches to pain management. The National Pain Foundation provides an easy-to-use source of information and support for pain patients and their families. Through education, materials and programs, the NPF works to erase the stigma associated with pain and pain treatment. The NPF web site and other materials offer information about chronic pain conditions such as arthritis and complex regional pain syndrome (CRPS) or reflex sympathetic dystrophy (RSD).
