Chronic Pain and Addiction: A Way Through

Human beings experience imprisonment in many ways. For some, the sense of inner bondage is a result of debilitating physical pain. Dr Howard Kornfeld is a specialist in the area of chronic pain and addiction medicine. Though not all chronic pain sufferers become addicted to the medications prescribed for alleviation of their pain, addictions can develop.
