main-in-pain.jpgIt could be the burning sensation you feel moments after your finger touches the hot stove, the dull ache in your right temple after a long day at work or the sharp twinge you feel in your lower back after you’ve lifted a heavy piece of equipment…it’s pain.

In this episode of HealthSmart, we’ll explore the role of pain in our body and how doctors measure what we feel. Plus, from headaches to lower back pain, discover new ways of thinking about – and relieving – pain.
