Perspectives on Pain: An SCI Panel Discussion
Presented on March 11, 2014 at the University of Washington Medical Center, Seattle, WA.
A large percentage of people with SCI have frequent pain that can interfere with daily activities. Finding ways to minimize the pain and, when necessary, to move forward in spite of pain, can be essential to maintaining quality of life. This video features four individuals with SCI discussing their pain experiences, the different treatments they have tried, what has and has not worked for them, and how they stay positive and carry on with full lives.Two of the panelists participated in our ongoing SCI-CARE study to help them manage their chronic pain.
