About this Resource
An internationally recognized leader in the world of pediatric pain, Dr. Krane gave a brilliant TED talk several years ago on the experience and treatment of chronic pain. Most people think of pain as a symptom, but there are cases where the nervous system develops feedback loops and pain becomes a disease in itself. Starting with the story of a girl whose sprained wrist turned into a nightmare, Dr. Krane talks about the complex mystery of chronic pain, and reviews the facts we’re just learning about how it works and how to treat it.
