Army service takes toll on military women, female relatives of soldiers

Women in the military and female family members of soldiers are more likely to suffer from chronic pain, according to a recent study. The study evaluated women serving in the military and female family members of soldiers from 2006 to 2013 and compared it to the period between 2014 and 2020. Chronic pain appears to be prevalent for military women and is associated with stress over being on active-duty. The study's objective was to assess chronic pain's incidence among the targeted women. By the end of the study, more than 3.4 million women between the ages of 22 and 46 had increased odds of chronic pain from 2006 to 2013 compared to 2014 to 2020.
