This episode features Dr. David Hanscom’s interview with Kent Bassett and Marion Cunningham, directors of the new film “This Might Hurt” which focuses on the mind-body approach to treating chronic pain. The film, which is being crowdfunded on Indiegogo, was inspired by Kent’s own battle with chronic pain and the solution he has found in the work of Drs. Sarno, Schubiner, Hanscom and others. During the interview, Kent talks about the steps he took to become pain-free. The film follows Dr. Schubiner’s work with several long term chronic pain patients. He and Marion discuss the making of the film and share the impact the patient stories featured in the film had on them.
