Tens of millions of Americans suffer from chronic pain. It can be mild or excruciating, intermittent or continuous, merely inconvenient or totally incapacitating. And just as chronic pain can vary so can the ways to treat it. We focus on coping and caring for chronic pain - from common cures to new treatments, and explore the dangerous and growing trend of people becoming addicted to pain killers.
