Scientists Could Rewire your Brain to Eliminate Pain

With the U.S. facing a epidemic-level addiction crisis, scientists are looking for novel ways to treat pain that don’t involve dangerous, highly addictive medications like opioids. Some researchers are even making inroads on therapies and treatments that deal with pain by going directly to the brain — to rewire pain and how it is experienced. This research could help some of the 25 million people who experience chronic pain.
