Short Description: 
A Nation in Pain by Judy Foreman

In A NATION IN PAIN science-writer Judy Foreman covers all of the crucial aspects of the nation's chronic pain problem,  from recent advances in the neurobiology and genetics of pain, to the striking gender disparities in its treatment, to the politics and science underlying the country’s wrenching “opioid wars,” to the latest research on traditional treatments such as surgery and drugs, as well as a realistic assessment of the effectiveness of exercise and alternative remedies such as marijuana, acupuncture, massage and chiropractic.  As a person who has had severe chronic pain herself, Judy Foreman blends her experience as a patient with her career of 40 years as one of the country’s top science writers and the winner of more than 50 journalism awards.
