ABC Australia's Catalyst Program featured Complex Regional Pain Syndrome last night.

Dr Maryanne Demasi sensitively presents the story of two young Australian women for whom pain has gone on to become a disease in its own right "Catalyst - Complex Pain 09/07/09".

The program explains about the involvement of the brain in continuing the pain message. It show the ADAPT pain management program in which patients are encouraged to move agin and to move normally. This is brain retraining, "clearing the neurotag" as Dr Lorimer Moseley could put it.

I left a comment suggesting that they do a follow up showing other very effective brain retraining and the results that can be gained without drugs or invasive procedures.

I encourage you to watch the 15 minute video of the show. Laura and Kate have been courageous in helping to make the program and spreading the work. My heart goes out to both of them.
