Pain and Your Brain



As a personal injury attorney, I have spent 32 years learning about pain and how to document it and help my clients to recover damages for their pain.  I have read countless reports written by expert medical witnesses hired to downplay or even dispute the pain of my clients, and I have taken countless depositions of those expert medical witnesses as they testify to downplay or even dispute the pain of my clients. 

This happens almost invariably in cases where there is no objective evidence (MRIs, x-rays, EMGs and other diagnostic tests) to corroborate the patient’s complaints of pain. Sometimes the treating physician can document muscle spasms; sometimes they do not. When there is no objective evidence, this provides the insurance companies who handle these claims with all sorts of ammunition to attempt to refute what is called subjective pain.   

Anyone who has known pain, knows you cannot see it...or can you?  The video link provided here is a fascinating new claim by scientists that they can see and measure pain on brain scans.  If only it were that easy. Even they admit that the scan is not to be used as a lie detector test. Still, it would help many cases if the pain could be somehow documented in cases where there is no objective evidence to corroborate the patient’s claim of pain.
