A new era for chronic pain

In this episode, we take a brief look at the most recent advances in the field of chronic pain, discuss some basic definitions of what it is, and what are some aspects of the treatment that need to be observed when trying to address it from an integrative perspective. We talk about the new classification of chronic pain in the ICD-11, and discuss the biopsychosocial model of pain.
