Elliot Krane at TED University. TED2011. February 28 - March 4, Long Beach, CA. Credit: James Duncan Davidson / TEDToday, The Huffington Post brought Dr. Elliot Krane, director of pain management at Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital at Stanford University, in to emphasize the difference between pain, the purposeful, and the bane of millions of American’s existence, chronic pain, the disease.  (Please click the picture of Dr. Krane with a blow torch for the video since wordpress.com has a distain for embedded html.)  It’s a rare display of the aura of mystery surrounding the condition in the medical community.  I applaud Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital for promoting a holistic approach to chronic pain within the confines of traditional western medicine.

I highly recommend Dr. Krane’s 2011 TED talk in which he elaborates on the mysteries behind chronic pain in fascinating and entertaining detail.
