Study Shows 1-in-5 Adults Plagued by Pain
Persistent aches and pains plague nearly one-fifth of adults in the U.S., according to a National Health Interview Survey. But victims can learn to identify the culprits of their pain from reading their body's clues. When people try to ignore or power through their pain, they teach their brain to get good at being in pain, warns Ya-Ling Liou, a pain management expert. This is how chronic pain sets in. Ya-Ling J. Liou is a chiropractic physician who earned her doctorate from New York Chiropractic College. Her new book, Every Body's Guide to Everyday Pain, takes into account the whole person, and aims not only to address the mechanical balance of the body, but also the chemical and emotional aspects that so often influence this balance. Dr. Liou lives, works and writes in Seattle.
