Many Americans blame acute aches and pains on the recession, survey finds

THURSDAY, Sept. 24 (HealthDay News) -- The sting of a bad economy is causing physical pain for many Americans, according to a new survey that found that more than two-thirds of respondents blame the downturn for a variety of body aches.

An American Pain Foundation online survey of 2,192 people found that 68 percent of those who suffered acute back pain or other minor muscle strains and sprains in the past year believe the recession caused, increased or affected their pain, because of increased stress and having to work harder at work and home.

  • 34 percent reported having suffered from acute back pain in the past year, while 48 percent said they'd experienced minor muscle strains or sprains on other parts of their body. The rate of acute back pain or muscle strains and sprains was highest for those with children under 18 years old in their household -- 69 percent versus 56 percent for those without children in the home.

  • Only 43 percent of those with pain said they'd consulted a health care professional. Of those, 90 percent said they tried some form of remedy before they saw a health care professional. The belief that they could "tough it out" was cited by 57 p
