Many teenagers are dealing with chronic pain. Whether it’s a sport’s injury, illness, or emotional pain, handling chronic pain can leave them frustrated, angry or depressed. Interestingly, emotional pain and physical pain both cause anxiety so, regardless of the origin of the pain, the same tools can be used to help decrease or alleviate the suffering our teens are enduring. Through his own personal ordeal, Dr. David Hanscom discovered that chronic pain is curable by systematically using established medical practices in a self-directed manner. He first utilized these practices to help himself then put them into practice with his patients. Now he is sharing his discoveries and insights with Mighty Parenting podcast host Sandy Fowler as they explore the physiology of anxiety and how tackling that can help us in handling chronic pain, both emotional and physical. Our Guest: Dr. David Hanscom Detailed Show Notes and Support at MightyParenting.comBONUS: Check out our membership area for additional interviews/bonus content here

I appreciate this episode as the mom of 3 boys and a girl. I noticed that you were afraid to leave the girls out of the boys podcast ... if it is about boys then the girls don't need to be mentioned or brought into the conversation. It seems to be the same problem that was being discussed...boys being compared to girls or pushed aside for girls. In a podcast about them it's ok to leave the girls out. :)
