Come join us for the beginning of a new mini-series on pain. “Explain the Pain” Part One: Hurt vs. Harm. Pain is how your body reacts to what is thought to be harmful stimuli or damage to the body. Your brain interprets the message from the nerve signals in the spinal cord and causes many different possible responses. The human body is very complex and doctors are still researching the relationship between the brain and the body. When it comes to Chronic Pain, doctors are still unable to find concrete evidence for why we have it, and why it affects some people, but not others.
There are many different types of pain and we explore how some of that pain effects the body as well as what we have learned about managing it. Pain can come from many sources. There are some ways in which we can influence our bodies to help combat the lasting effects pain has on our physical and mental well being. In “Explain the Pain” Part One: Hurt vs. Harm, Dr. Michael Harris joins us for a brief discussion about the difference between Acute Pain and Chronic Pain.
We have some special content coming up over the spring and summer. Stay informed and check back regularly for updates and more. Take care of yourselves.
