The leading edge in pain relief and pain management.

My story with pain
I have been physically active all my life but have had boughts of debilitating pain. The pain was sometimes due to a traumatic injury such as a snowboard fall or other times an overuse injury from throwing a ball or running too much. In any of the cases of pain I was taken out of my daily joys and was extremely grateful to find a solution to the pain. I then decided I wanted to help people experience freedom from pain, bring clarity in the fear of the unknown (How long will this last? Will I ever get better? What can I do to help?), and give other options besides drugs and surgery.
