All About Pain with Dr Franziska Denk
Episode 4 of Brain Explained explores a new theory for understanding pain. Pain, its something we feel often and that many people chronically suffer from with an estimated 40% of people suffering from chronic pain and understanding pain would allow us to help them. That is where Dr Franziska Denk’s Research comes into play. For she is describing a new theory showing that a type of cell called a fibroblasts may be the key player in chronic pain. Listen to the episode to find out how.
