SHARING THE CHALLENGES OF CHRONIC PAIN AND MOVEMENT DISORDERS 

Chronic pain and movement disorders can have a life-changing impact – not only for someone living with one of these conditions, but also for the person who cares for them day-to-day. At Abbott, we understand that caregivers share the challenges and choices that come with a daily search for relief and control. And we believe the right information, planning, and inspiration can empower you both to live the best lives you can – and help you plan and prepare for a fuller life together.
