ABOUT THE FILM


This Might Hurt is a documentary that offers solutions to cure chronic pain. The film follows three chronic pain patients who have spent years searching for answers. Desperate for relief, they enter a new medical program — run by Dr. Howard Schubiner — that focuses on uncovering hidden causes of pain, and retraining their brains to switch the pain off.


While only a handful of doctors are aware of the treatment shown in this film, it’s quickly gaining recognition. Emotional Awareness and Expression Therapy (EAET) was proven effective in a large randomized study, and was recommended by the HHS’s task force to combat the opioid epidemic. This Might Hurt provides an intimate exploration of this cutting-edge treatment, and suggests a path to healing for millions.
