Many teenagers are dealing with chronic pain. Whether it’s a sport’s injury, illness, or emotional pain, handling chronic pain can leave them frustrated, angry or depressed. Interestingly, emotional pain and physical pain both cause anxiety so, regardless of the origin of the pain, the same tools can be used to help decrease or alleviate the suffering our teens are enduring. Through his own personal ordeal, Dr. David Hanscom discovered that chronic pain is curable by systematically using established medical practices in a self-directed manner. He first utilized these practices to help himself then put them into practice with his patients. Now he is sharing his discoveries and insights with Mighty Parenting podcast host Sandy Fowler as they explore the physiology of anxiety and how tackling that can help us in handling chronic pain, both emotional and physical.
