    Too bad the podcast doesn’t work. It sounds like an interesting topic.

    • Tim Gerstmar says:

      Hi John. I just went and checked it and it worked fine on my computer. I’ve also had other people tell me it worked just fine on theirs, so I’m not sure what the problem is. Please check your settings, and hope you get to listen to the podcast. Best, Dr. Tim Gerstmar

    This is unbelievably interesting. Never would I have imagined that chronic pain is driven by emotions. I have a mother who’s 80, w/ chronic knee, and back pain, and two big boys who played football in high school.Just shared to both. Will let my mother listen to this. Brilliant, thank you Dr Hanscom for sharing your knowledge of this amazing discovery!!!
