The Mayo Clinic Guide to Pain Relief - DVD Course

If your life or the life of someone you love has been hijacked by pain, you’re not alone. One out of every three U.S. adults lives with chronic pain—pain that can rob your vitality, confidence, and even your will to live. But it doesn’t have to be that way. That’s why the experts at Mayo Clinic are working with The Great Courses to craft this research-based guide to pain relief and recovery.


In The Mayo Clinic Guide to Pain Relief, Barbara K. Bruce, Ph.D., L.P., provides a tried-and-true framework for coping with chronic pain. Based on a scientific understanding of pain processing mechanisms in the central and peripheral nervous systems, Dr. Bruce shares practical tips for implementing behaviors to lessen both your pain and your stress. You will learn how to build an appropriate health care team and how to create your individualized pain-management program with your physician to address the issues of physical stamina, stress management, social support, sleep, and mood. Dr. Bruce doesn't want you to wait for a cure or pain relief before you move back into your life. "I want you to begin living your life today," she says. And with this course, you will be well on your way.

You will learn:

  • How the body processes pain
  • Which behaviors can lessen your pain
  • How to build an appropriate health care team
  • How to develop your unique pain-management plan
