        September is designated as National Pain Awareness Month. The purpose of Pain Awareness Month is to bring attention to the very real physical suffering of an estimated 75 million Americans and to highlight the need for research and new, innovative treatment options. Pain touches everyone at one time or another. Pain does not discriminate; however, its treatment does. For many, pain goes away on its own or after a short course of treatment. But for others, pain becomes all-consuming, affecting every aspect of their lives. Here at Horwitz Horwitz and Associates we recognize the many clients who have been injured on the job or who have been in an accident and now experience pain every day.

        Rating Insurance Carriers

        150 150 Clifford Horwitz
