In this programme Professor Lorimer Moseley, Professor of Clinical Neurosciences and Chair in Physiotherapy at the University of South Australia, explains the relationship between chronic pain and the brain, incorporating personal stories which illuminate this relationship. The importance of providing good explanations of pain to those living with it is also looked at.
