Soldier Pain

New research examines the high rate of chronic pain among soldiers returning from deployment. 

The survey from the Walter Reed Army Institute of Research included more than 2,500 soldiers in the U.S. military. 

It finds that 44% of soldiers say they suffer from pain lasting more than three months at a time. While 15% say the pain is so great they need Opioid pain killers. 

That number is compared to just 4% of the general population who use those for pain.
