Chronicles the experiences of three patients who suffer from chronic pain, and, in telling their stories, explains what happens to the body when it experiences pain, how chronic pain develops and what remedies are available for treatment. Includes a focus on the Catch-22 situation that can be created when narcotics are prescribed to treat pain, as well as the growing acceptance of adding complementary and alternative medicine, such as acupuncture, to treatment regimens.
