PAIN / MEDICATION MANAGEMENT
 

Arthritis, fibromyalgia, low back/spine issues, headaches, cancer, ear infections. There are many sources of ongoing chronic pain. Unlike acute pain, which is a normal trigger the body generates to alert you to a possible injury, chronic pain is different.
 

Chronic pain persists for weeks, months or even years and can lead to anxiety and depression, as well as a host of other physical issues. Treatment is critical. That’s why Gravity+ developed a simple cheek swab test you can do at home to help your physician find the most effective pain management medication for your body.

PHARMACOGENETIC (PGX) TESTING FOR CHRONIC PAIN CONDITIONS

Living with chronic pain can impact all aspects of day-to-day living. From completing simple tasks in your daily routine to earning a living, chronic pain left untreated or undertreated can bring life to a halt.

The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) estimates that 20% of U.S. adults (50 million) live with chronic pain, which costs the nation up to $635 billion annually (CDC 2018).
