THIS MIGHT HURT


100 million Americans suffer from chronic pain and the opioid epidemic is ravaging the nation. Could a radical mind-body treatment be part of the solution?

TRAILER

 

Chronic pain is at an all-time high with 100 million Americans diagnosed with headaches, backaches, stomach aches, fibromyalgia and a host of other mysterious conditions. Doctors attempt to manage the pain with opiates, surgery, and injections but for so many these treatments are ineffective. People are desperate for a cure.

THIS MIGHT HURT is a feature-length documentary that explores the chronic pain epidemic by following a group of patients as they attempt a last-resort treatment called mind-body medicine. They undergo an intensive program that involves confronting the emotional roots of their suffering and making astonishing discoveries about the nature of mind and body. Through animation and archival footage, the film also will present recent findings in neuroscience and medical research that ask urgent questions about what's behind this epidemic.
