    The Physiology of Pain

    Pain Vs. Suffering & How to Ease the Suffering

    Pain is inevitable; suffering is optional. Let’s take a closer look at this old adage. One of the things that makes pain different when compared to other sensory systems, such as vision, hearing, and touch, is that pain is often directly associated with suffering.
