Are you afraid of developing pain as you get older? Older adults are the fastest growing segment of the world’s population, and pain is the most common reason they seek medical care. Fortunately, chronic pain is not an inevitable part of aging. Today’s show features a story of success from Manny Bellmore, an active 76 year old, retired mathematician who tells us how he’s overcome severe spine pain. We’ll then be joined by Dr. Perry Fine, Professor at the University of Utah School of Medicine, and past President of the American Academy of Pain Medicine, who’ll talk about what’s unique about treating pain in older adults.
