The Discovery Channel’s excellent documentary on pain, “Pain Matters”, is specifically about chronic pain.
This film looks at pain and chronic pain from several angles with testimonies by pain/medical researchers, Doctors in the field of pain management and several powerful segments devoted to individuals who are living with chronic pain.
These individuals and their families share their experiences, which, happily, each end with a successful, and unique, path to pain management. For anyone who may have loved ones, family and friends, who do not quite understand the condition this film will bring it to life for them.
It’s long, about an hour in length, and rather than watching it here, they will send you a copy for free. You can, of course, share that copy with others in your life to help them better understand your condition.
*As a footnote TEVA Pharmaceuticals co-sponsored this documentary. They actually have quite an informative web-site (for patients and healthcare and pharmacy professionals).
