Pain is the body's natural way of letting you know there is something wrong that needs to be looked at and addressed. I have an older friend who suffered from back pain going back decades [VET] he was prescribed a new pain patch [Which did the trick] so he became more active which by doing so eventually caused even more damage..
Do you get that I'm saying environmental contaminations create the "problem"?
I would think the underlying cause of a persons chronic pain would be investigated, before any gene treatment was carried out, just as it is at the moment.

Plus on top of that im given narcotics for breakthrough pain and i have to watch myself, you can be adictied to them easy.

I can care less about the possible minor contamination of the environment. These contaminant can't be any worse than the present pollution caused by current pharmaceutical products.
