Elliot Krane: The mystery of chronic pain

19 May
About this talk
We think of pain as a symptom, but there are cases where the nervous system develops feedback loops and pain becomes a terrifying disease in itself. Starting with the story of a girl whose sprained wrist turned into a nightmare, Elliot 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.
About Elliot Krane
At the Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital at Stanford, Elliot Krane works on the problem of treating pain in children.
The Ted talk is under 10 minutes but he does an excellent job of explaining chronic pain and how they hope to find real solutions in the future.

    Two queries:

    1) Is there any relation with Osteoarthritis, in things you have explained?
    2) There is one of my nephew who is having similar kind of disease, If you are interested we can communicate the case through mail in detail. I am quite hopeful..

    Thanks and Regards.
