Chronic Pain

As I’ve said in trainings and even on TV, “Sometimes I like wearing high heels. I won’t give up my Jimmy Choos, but I don’t want to pay the price of vanity.” Research clearly shows that there are some seriously negative effects of wearing high heels daily. So whether you wear them every day or just for special occasions, there’s some cause and effect that you should consider if, like me, you are hell bent on not ditching your heels.
At the Stanford Systems Neuroscience and Pain Lab, one of our active research studies is focused on how to help prepare people who are heading to surgery. We are equipping them with the information and skills they can use to reduce their own distress and discomfort after surgery. Ideally, this helps people need less pain medication.

Other highly visible Olympians using unconventional performance boosters include beach volleyball players and their brightly colored physio-tape.
