“On A Scale Of 1 To 10, The Silent Epidemic” is an attempt at shining new light on the issue of chronic pain, and looking at it from a physiological, mental, psychological and spiritual dimension.
The motivation to make the film is to show people a different path to regain their quality of life. While chronic pain in some cases might never be totally overcome, there are modalities, therapies, approaches, that can make a substantial difference in people’s lives.
The film explores methods to treat pain beyond prescription opioids, over the counter pills, and surgery. It takes you to clinics and wellness centres that are treating pain patients using new diagnostic tools, innovative research and advanced products and therapies. The film follows a few people alongside their struggle to regain their quality of life, and features interviews from some of the top experts in the field of pain.
