Perspectives on pain: An SCI panel discussion
Abstract: This video is the second in a two-part series. Part two hosts a panel of four individuals (two participated in the Northwest Regional Spinal Cord Injury System’s ongoing SCI-CARE study) with different levels of spinal cord injury (SCI). Panelists share their personal experiences about how to cope with and manage pain after a SCI, which can interfere with daily activities and affect quality of life. They discuss how they think about or understand their pain, different treatments they tried, which ones worked the best/least, the difference between good pain and bad pain, having a positive attitude, and offer advice for newly injured individuals and those struggling with chronic pain. Audience questions are answered at the end of the presentation. Part one is available under accession number O19694. Run time: 1 hour 15 minutes 25 seconds.
