Stopping Pain Without Drugs

Here’s a quick interview with Dr. Vijay Vad, author of “Stop Pain.”  He suggests exercise for chronic pain.  Not quite on the stress illness bandwagon, but in its neighborhood:

I have seen a big explosion in chronic back pain and arthritis, and what I realized is that people have very limited self-help options. In the medical system, unfortunately, many health care providers do what they are trained to do. They push you into prescription medications which have side effects or suggest tons of medical procedures.
