In the program, we follow some of the most exciting new work. How does gender effect perception of pain and its treatment? How pain "imprinted" on the body? How can the body's own natural analgesics and defenses be mustered? How might "alternative" methods work? These are some of the issues we investigate. At the same time, we profile several patients who are dealing with the anguish of persistent pain today and surmise how they may be helped by advances in the future.
