6-29-10: A (Not So Painful) Conversation About Chronic Pain

[Audio http://stream.publicbroadcasting.net/production/mp3/wypr/local-wypr-910001.mp3%5DIf you suffer from chronic pain – arthritis, back pain, headaches – you’re not alone. Researchers estimate that more than 100 million people live with some kind of pain every day, yet there are very few doctors who are trained as pain specialists, and many people with pain are either undiagnosed, untreated, or under-treated. Tom talks to Dr. Paul Christo, director of the Multidisciplinary Pain Fellowship Program at The Johns Hopkins Hospital.

    Tom, Great show. It is heartwarming to hear why so little is really understood about chronic pain because it is such a relatively new science. The statement that CP is both a physical and emotional experience is brilliant. Those of us who have suffered know that is a fact.
    Being a Chronic Pain Advocate, it is reassuring to hear medical facilities and programs broadening their focus of study. I would hope that medical teaching institutions realize that they have a wealth of information available to them on chronic pain blogs. We are anxious to keep the conversation about pain experiences going to support and validate those in pain and assist those who are treating patients.
    Mary
