More pain for your weekend

Not to be a downer, but I wanted to share this TED video on chronic pain. It is pretty short, and worth a look if you have 8 minutes or so.   This physician discusses the mechanism behind pain syndromes like complex regional pain syndrome. I really like his concept of pain as “disease.”

I would say we see this a lot. How often do you have “chronic pain” listed as a problem in your assessment and plans from clinic.

Enjoy.
