Back Pain and the Brain

1 x 50 HD
Broadcaster:  NHK

Back pain is sometimes called 'the biggest health problem in the world's, because so many people suffer from it. Yet its mechanism is still unclear.


With traditional approaches and home remedies, many patients have no choice but to temporarily ease the pain. Now, a new back pain treatment targeting the brain instead of bone and lumbar disks is beginning to see results. Numerous cases demonstrate that enhancing the functions of the brain that recognises pain greatly improves aches.


With new insight and fresh approaches, this episode covers the cutting edge of back pain treatment around the world, and reports on examples of treatment that directly approach the brain, relieving pain in ways that we've never been able to before.
