Many know that President John F. Kennedy suffered from low back pain. But, Kennedy’s medical history was far more serious and complex. In fact, his health was a closely guarded secret. It wasn’t until the release of his medical records in 2002 that the public became aware of his lifelong struggle with pain.
In the second part of our two-part show features Dr. Forest Tennant, pain specialist, researcher, and editor emeritus of the Practical Pain Management Journal. He reveals JFKs struggle with a life of discomfort, and the pain therapies that got him through the Presidency.
