Everbody Hurts
Most of us do whatever we can to avoid pain. In the UK alone we buy around 6,300 tonnes of paracetamol every year. But chronic pain, experienced by one in five people, is a major problem and can't always be treated by a pill. Grit your teeth and tackle pain head-on with our panel including Chair in Pain Medicine, Division of Population Health and Genomics Prof Lesley Colvin, Science Communicator Ali Floyd, Reader in Physiotherapy at Teeside University Dr Cormac Ryan, former Principal Investigator of the Pain Project Dr David Bain and linical Specialist Physiotherapist Cassandra Macgrego
