How to Beat - Pain

Kate Quilton and Dr Javid Abdelmoneim enlist nine volunteers from around the UK to take part in a six-week experiment to see what simple techniques can help treat chronic pain. The programme tries out various methods including yoga, tai chi, acupuncture or cold-water swimming, and question how much of the experience of pain is psychological. The programme also features the story of a woman who is unable to feel pain due to a genetic mutation, who may hold the key to the future treatment of chronic pain
