Episode 145: Deconstructing Pain
with Dr. Kevin Cuccaro, D.O.
Dealing with pain can be frustrating and, well…painful. If you don’t suffer from a persistent pain, you know someone who does. Just the words “chronic pain” bring fears of a loss in quality of life. But do we really know about pain? Dr. Kevin Cuccaro and I discuss how to ‘deconstruct’ pain and effectively address it.
On Today’s Episode of A Healthy Curiosity:
- how pain is constructed — and how we might deconstruct it
- the real purpose of pain
- the “pain triangle”
- why pain persists even if the “problem” is fixed
