"On a Scale of 1 to 10" is the new film from the team behind "Your Second fifty, rising above the fears of aging", and "To life, death and beyond, the music of Magma".
Chronic pain affects 1 out of 5 people in North America, to various degrees. In more extreme cases, often people find themselves misunderstood, isolated and eventually may fall into depression. Both the director Laurent Goldstein and the executive producer Jennifer Unruh have had a first hand experience with chronic pain.
The motivation to make the film is to show people a different path to regain their quality of life. While chronic pain in some cases might never be totally overcome, there are modalities, therapies, approaches, that can make a substantial difference in peoples lives. The film explores methods to treat pain beyond prescription opioids, over the counter pills, and surgery. It takes you to clinics and wellness centres that are treating pain patients using new diagnostic tools, innovative research and advanced products and therapies. The film follows a few people alongside their struggle to regain their quality of life, and features interviews from some of the top experts in the field of pain.
Join Laurent and Jennifer, as they take you on an inspiring journey around the world to help people suffering with chronic pain explore new ways to get their power back.
