Pain Management

Episode Details:

Title: Healthy Body, Healthy Mind; Pain Management

Episode Description: Pain has been defined as, “an unpleasant sensory and emotional experience associated with actual or potential tissue damage”. We feel pain when the body’s pain receptors send electrical signals along nerve endings to the spinal cord, then on to the brain. And though pain sensation isn’t always related to an actual injury, illness, or trauma, it remains the leading reason that people seek medical help, and the leading cause of disability. In this program, we will educate viewers on the comprehensive national policy surrounding pain management, and highlight a balanced approach to safe and effective medical treatment for reducing the experience of pain.
