The leading cause of premature aging and long-term disability in the U.S is chronic pain, an affliction suffered by one in five adults. Healthcare expenses associated with treating chronic pain are skyrocketing, and along with this pain epidemic has come a host of other issues, including an increased likelihood of depression, loss of mobility, and the danger of opioid addiction. The sad reality is that most of us have come to accept some form of pain--whether it's back spasms, throbbing joints, or arthritis aches--as a normal, inevitable part of life. But the truth is that there is nothing "normal" about chronic pain; the human body is simply not designed to endure it and should not have to. With gripping interviews from individuals who have cured their chronic pain through gentle, daily, exercise made available to them through Public Television and Miranda Esmonde-White's fitness program, Classical Stretch, audiences will be moved by the personal stories of suffering and triumph. Through compelling interviews from world-renowned health professionals attesting to the power of the body to rid itself of pain with the right approach to pain relief and management, Forever Painless presents an accessible and widely available solution to the current pain epidemic, which is affecting hundreds of millions of people worldwide.
