Bristol, Tennessee (PRWEB) -- A new survey from the American Pain Foundation (APF) says economic pain from the recession is contributing to acute (short-term) physical pain for Americans.1 In response to these findings, King Pharmaceuticals®, Inc. has launched a consumer education initiative with RealAge.com to provide tips and information on preventing and treating strains and sprains of the back and other areas.

The educational program can be found at http://www.RealAge.com/StrainsAndSprains.

According to the APF survey, 68% of 1267 people who experienced acute back pain or other minor muscle strains or sprains in the past year said that the recession played a role, in part because of greater stress and working harder at home and on the job.1

"More work on the job and around the house can stress our bodies and contribute to injuries like strains and sprains to the back or other areas," said Dr Michael Roizen, RealAge.com founder and chief wellness officer of Cleveland Clinic. "In many cases, prevention can be just a matter of listening to your body, knowing when to take a break, and moving your joints and muscles properly. Minor strains and sprains are common but should not be taken lightly, so it's important to see a doctor to get proper treatment and make sure it's not something more serious."

Minor strains and sprains can cause pain, swelling, and limited or loss of motion of the affected area - and the impact is significant. For example, according to a 2005 report by the US Department of Labor, Bureau of Labor Statistics, strains and sprains were reported as the leading injury or illness in every major industry, accounting for 41% of all workplace injuries or illnesses
