Episode 1: Why Pain Matters

The inaugural episode of the "Pain Matters Podcast" with Professor Lorimer Moseley, titled "Why Pain Matters," delves into the profound significance of pain in our lives and society. Professor Moseley explores the multifaceted impact of pain on individuals, communities, healthcare, and research funding.

Pain touches the lives of countless individuals, affecting not only those who experience it but also their loved ones, colleagues, and communities. The discussion highlights the far-reaching implications of pain, encompassing reduced quality of life, social isolation, decreased productivity, and its association with various health conditions. Despite pain being a significant contributor to disability and suffering, it often receives inadequate attention and funding compared to other health issues.

Professor Moseley draws inspiration from two triggers: the Pain Revolution rural outreach tour and preparing a grant application. The Pain Revolution tour exposes the immense need for pain education and management in rural communities, demonstrating that pain is often undertreated. Furthermore, the grant application process reveals a broader issue: the prevailing but outdated beliefs about the nature of pain, hindering progress in pain research and treatment.

The podcast aims to challenge these entrenched views and initiate conversations about pain's complexity, its psychological aspects, and the need for a paradigm shift in understanding and addressing chronic pain. Professor Moseley, with his extensive background in physiotherapy and neuroscience, is committed to exploring the intricacies of human pain perception, the brain's role, and how society perceives and responds to pain.

In future episodes, the podcast promises to delve into the history of chronic pain research and share insights from Professor Moseley's extensive experience in the field. With an emphasis on demystifying pain and advocating for a more comprehensive understanding, "Pain Matters with Lorimer Moseley" aims to contribute to the ongoing conversation surrounding pain and its impact on individuals and society.
