Insights into Pain and the Brain

Tuesday, June 4th, 2024

I just recently came across this video even though it is a couple of years old. It is a great summary of the mysteries around chronic pain. I often suggest to many of my clients that they view Lorimer Moseley’s TED talk, because he is such an entertaining AND knowledgeable speaker. I’ll start recommending this one too.

It was interesting for me to see in this video that two of the examples he uses to help explain pain are two examples that I have used for years in my professional presentations. The construction worker’s boot and the blue/red cold study are the two that have helped me communicate these concepts.

The animation below is entertaining, and the content is scientifically accurate. Enjoy!
