Discovery Channel Documentary “Pain Matters” Chronicles the Burdens of Living with Chronic Pain~Loved Ones Provide Significant Support, But Many Still Struggle with Pain’s Invisibility, New Survey Finds

NORTH WALES, Pa.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--

There are 100 million American adults who live with chronic pain – more than cancer, diabetes and heart disease combined. A new documentary titled “Pain Matters,” airing Nov. 16 on the Discovery Channel, explores the realities of chronic pain through the eyes of individuals who live with it, as well as the perspective from leading national experts in pain management.

The film features a range of stories of people living with chronic pain including a U.S. Navy veteran and a two-time Stanley Cup-winning hockey player. “Pain Matters” chronicles their individual challenges in managing their condition, including validation of their pain due to the difficulty in objectively measuring it and working with healthcare professionals to develop an individualized treatment plan.

"We hope that the personal stories told through ‘Pain Matters’ will shed light on the impact of chronic pain on people's lives and will engage and enlighten viewers," said Camilla Carpenter, senior vice president of business strategy and operations at the Discovery Channel.
