Pain is a perception – nothing more, nothing less. Understanding pain allows you to gain control of your care. Freedom from pain is not possible – with the right tools it is probable.
Back in Control: A Spine Surgeon’s Roadmap Out of Chronic Pain is a book that shares the strategies learned by the author during his own journey out of chronic pain. This website is the action plan, which evolved from many patients’ successes. It will guide you along a transformative path from suffering to empowerment and vitality.
Pain increases anxiety. By using Mind Body principles alternate neurological pathways are created to diminish it.
Being trapped by pain is frustrating. You must break loose of your anger to move forward.
You have been in a survival mode. Free yourself from your painful past and create a full life.
Chronic pain isolates you. Re-establish a nurturing home and valuable friendships.
Connect with the beauty of life – awakened, recharged, and full of hope.
Your pain will be a distant memory.
