A Nation in Pain
Healing our biggest health problem
Verified by Psychology Today
Oxford University Press says: In A Nation in Pain, Foreman offers a sweeping, deeply researched account of the chronic pain crisis, from neurobiology to public policy. Drawing on both her personal experience with chronic pain and her background as an award-winning journalist, she guides us through recent scientific discoveries, gender disparities in pain conditions…assessments of traditional treatments and alternative remedies, including marijuana. She also explores the destructive “opioid wars,” which have led to a misguided demonization of prescription painkillers.
