Chronic pain is complicated, and learning about the topic from literature and research can be a daunting task. Chronic pain podcasts are a great way to take in information from a variety of sources and in a format that is fun and entertaining. But there are a lot of chronic pain podcasts out there, so searching for the right one can be as daunting of a task as reading the literature. If you’re searching for the chronic pain podcasts that are right for you, look no further. Michael Aquino, PT, DPT, the Functional Restoration Director for Roots Chronic Pain Recovery put together a list of his favorites.
