Welcome to the Texas Pain Society
The Texas Pain Society is a non-profit organization of over 350 pain practitioners that are involved in acute and chronic pain management of patients in Texas. The Texas Pain Society represents the practice of pain medicine in Texas with a seat on the Texas Medical Association's House of Delegates.
Our mission is to improve the quality of life of Texans who suffer from pain.
September IS Pain Awareness Month in Texas!!
In early August I wrote a letter to Governor Abbott outlining substantial supportive data and details requesting that he proclaim September as Pain Awareness Month in Texas.
To my most pleasant surprise, the enclosed document arrived in my mailbox!
This proclamation is a direct result of the efforts of Texas Pain Society to promote and facilitate improvements in Texas public policy, education, research, and access to and provision of excellent clinical pain care.
Thank you to all of you for all that you do individually and collectively. FORWARD !

JUST A MONTH AWAY! STILL TIME TO REGISTER!!
In October 2014, the Texas Pain Foundation became operational as a 501c3 nonprofit charitable organization. Unlike the Texas Pain Society, a 501c6 organization, the Foundation focuses only on education and research and CAN accept unrestricted educational grants but CANNOT engage in lobbying.
As we look to the year ahead, educational activities about pain and its treatment are more crucial than ever and I hope you will make a donation to support our work.
Thank you for your consideration of this request.
