It is widely suggested that up to half of all people living with chronic pain also suffer from depression. And while it is at times difficult to determine whether pain worsens the depression or vice-versa, it’s not surprising that these two conditions can cause, and exacerbate, one another.

According to Harvard Health Publishing, if you live with chronic pain, the likelihood of developing depression or anxiety is tripled.

When planning a vacation, business trip or other type of travel, the primary focus is typically on details such as packing, booking accommodations and scheduling the mode of transportation. These are certainly important considerations, but another critical task that is often overlooked is setting the stage for good health on the go.

Anyone with chronic pain conditions or known disease will likely pack any necessary medications as part of their pre-travel activities. But beyond that, and for those who don’t anticipate health issues along the way, planning for wellness is typically not at the forefront of priority items, even though it should be.

For decades, Dr. John J. Sassano of Florida Pain Relief Centers has truly listened to patients who describe their pain, with unwavering commitment to thoroughly addressing their individual concerns and conditions.
