If you followed my posts in December, you’ll remember that I was fortunate enough to be involved in the filming of the National Fibromyalgia Association’s (NFA) newest Public Service Announcement. (If you missed it, read it here: http://bit.ly/aKjjwY .)
This PSA, entitled “The Science Behind Fibromyalgia,” is unique on several fronts.
Unlike other PSA’s, the intent of this short video is to educate the public on “why’s” and “how’s” of this unique condition – using way cool CG (computer generated) graphics. Fibromyalgia symptoms are complicated enough without adding the controversy of how or why it exists, so the details offered in this PSA are quite helpful.
This short video shows the pathways of spinal communication – how pain receptors transmit information to the brain using easy-to-understand graphics. It depicts how pain is experienced for someone with fibromyalgia, leading the viewer to better understand how and why this pain experience differs from the general population.
Because this PSA is so straightforward, it also serves as a great teaching tool. It will educate medical professionals themselves, as well as provide them with a simple, sharable, tool to assist in educating their patients.
If viewing this PSA leads to a better understanding of fibromyalgia – both for professionals and patients – then the NFA’s goal has been achieved.
View it here either from the NFA link or from YouTube. Take a look and tell me what you think!
This is a great video! I watched the YouTube clip and thought it was great. I didn’t know anything about Fibromyalgia before meeting you – so to see this as a viewer who is niave, I thought it offered a fantastic explanation. Isn’t it amazing how long you have to film for just a few short clips? 🙂
Thanks Janae! It’s good to know that the education aspect of the PSA is working!
