One in five people suffer from muscle pain; however, many healthcare systems overlook these cases, primarily focusing on emergency care.
There are a few reasons for this:
Treatments disregard the individualized nature of muscle pain, leading to less effective care.
Physical therapy, a key component in managing such pain, often requires time-consuming, in-person sessions, lacking convenience and immediacy.
