About Aches and Gains™
Pain has reached epidemic proportions in America. The Institute of Medicine estimates that 100 million people suffer from uncontrolled pain, almost a third of the population. The problem is real and can transform lives terribly. However, there is hope and there are treatments.
Dr. Paul Christo, pain medicine specialist at The Johns Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore, Maryland is making an impact. Not only has he helped patients overcome a wide variety of pain conditions, but his reach has expanded to the public at large. He hosts the first radio talk show on pain and pain relief called, Aches and Gains™. The show airs every Saturday night on WBAL Radio 1090 AM in Baltimore and online at www.paulchristomd.com.
The show highlights this problem of universal dimensions, and illustrates with real stories how to overcome pain. Aches and Gains™ provides compelling stories of people who have found relief, shares cutting-edge treatments from contributing experts, and offers ways that people in pain can cope themselves. Several celebrities with pain, like Naomi Judd, Montel Williams, and Jennifer Grey, have brought their own stories of success to the show. They make us realize that nobody is immune to pain. Like them, anyone can overcome pain.
Dr. Christo reaches a broad audience ranging from those currently in pain to those concerned about developing pain. Since pain can strike us at any stage of life, the show features ways to treat pain that may occur from the beginning of life in infants all the way to the end of life. Everybody should come away with hope, inspiration, and an understanding of real solutions for pain.
