Why do we feel pain and how Do WE manage pain?
We all know the unpleasant or sometimes even excruciating feeling of pain. But why do we feel pain, and how do we manage pain even if the cause of pain no longer exists?

We look at these and other questions about pain in this issue of Equilibrium.

All the best,

The South African Society of Physiotherapy
