Pain 101

Pain is the most common reason for medical visits in the U.S. and can be as simple as a stubbed toe or signal a complex, systemic disease. These new programs from UCSF’s Mini Medical School for the Public bring together experts from a broad range of specialties to explain the basic science of pain and some of the most common ways it manifests. The series also investigates the modern practices of pain management and the cutting-edge advances in treatment currently being developed in the research halls of UCSF.

  1. I hardly comment, but i did a few searching and wound up here Monthly Highlights:
    February 2012 | UCTV Blog. And I do have a few questions for you if you don’t mind. Could it be only me or does it seem like some of these remarks look like they are written by brain dead people? 😛 And, if you are writing at additional sites, I’d like to follow everything fresh you have to post.
    Would you list of the complete urls of your community sites like
    your twitter feed, Facebook page or linkedin profile?
