Pain Series Part 1: Suffering from long term pain? The key is understanding it!

Chronic Pain costs our country more than a billion dollars a year, more than cancer, diabetes, and cardiovascular disease combined! But what is chronic pain?

The first video is an easy to follow video about chronic pain. It helps you understand what current research has been saying about chronic pain - that it's not a joint or muscle problem, rather a 're-wiring' of the brain perception of itself. In other words, the brain has become more sensitive than before. The second video is an entertaining TED talk by Lorimer Moseley, a world leader in chronic pain treatment and research.
