Chronic pain has a profound and far-reaching impact on the lives of many Canadians. With over 20% of our population living with some form of chronic pain, it’s vital to take the time to better understand the chronic pain experience; for a lot of people, part of this experience involves the concept of disability. Watch the third installment in our Summer 2023 video series about chronic pain as a disability to learn more.

Special thanks go out to one of the amazing PWLE on the CircaPain team, Lesley, who came up with the idea for this video, and to Emily, our summer public health practicum student, who is the creator of this video series.

The dawn of the 21st century brought along with it the popularization of ‘personalized medicine’; the tailoring of someone’s medical care and treatment to suit their individual needs and genetic predispositions. As a team of people researching circadian rhythms, we are very interested in using personalized medicine to target our circadian system; a strategy called ‘chronotherapy’.

Never heard of chronotherapy before? Well that’s okay because we have created an introductory video about it as the second installment in our Summer 2023 video series.
