Chronic Pain: The New Paradigm for People With Chronic Pain

Chronic Pain: The New Paradigm for People With Chronic Pain

‘Till’ focuses on the pain — and resiliency — of the people who live with chronic pain, as well as the impact pain has on their lives and on our own health. The show features personal testimony from patients, their family members, doctors, and other professionals about the effects of chronic pain, the physical, mental, spiritual, behavioral, and even emotional toll that chronic pain takes on patients, and the impact on those who love them.

Chronic pain is a physical symptom of disease or an abnormal response to disease. There are many types of chronic pain, and the effects of chronic pain are many and varied. A patient that experiences long-term chronic pain may be unable to perform activities of daily living, they may feel anxiety, depression, and have a range of psychosocial difficulties to contend with. Chronic pain is often associated with a variety of conditions such as cancer, multiple sclerosis, fibromyalgia, back pain, rheumatoid arthritis, and osteoarthritis.

With a national TV audience estimated to be more than one hundred million (nearly 9% of homes), and broadcast in more than fifty countries, Chronic Pain is the new paradigm for people suffering with chronic pain.
