Health411-Phantom Limb Pain
In this episode of Health411, host Dr. Jonathan Karp and producer Daniel Geller discuss the concept of "Phantom Limb Pain". Essentially, this is when people who have recently had a limb amputated feel real pain in the (now removed) limb. Why does this occur? What sort of neuroanatomy does it rely on? Can we "reorganize" the brain as a treatment to this ailment? All of these topics (and more) are discussed in this episode.
