Good episode? Give it some love!
Season 1, Episode 2 - Acute to Chronic

This episode discusses how acute pain morphs into chronic pain, what happens within the nerves and neurons, and the interaction between the peripheral and central nervous systems.

Striving to Thriving is a current and accurate resource for those things related to the biological, psychological and social (biopsychosocial) aspects of chronic pain. The content is presented by David Hall, CHWC, a certified Chronic Pain Support Group Facilitator, certified by the U.S. Pain Foundation, and a Health and Wellness Coach specializing in Chronic Pain Management.

David sought special training from one of the top Pain Management Specialists in the world. Struggling with chronic back pain, migraine and one of the most painful diseases, CRPS (Complex Regional Pain Syndrome), David has moved from Striving to Thriving despite his painful conditions.

David's book by the same name, "Striving to Thriving - Reclaiming your life from chronic pain,"will be available in December. The book is a practical guide/workbook to help people with chronic pain be their own advocate and build a multidisciplinary team and create an individualized treatment plan addressing all biopsychosocial aspects of the chronic pain life. The audience for the book is both "patient" and "providers."

From The Podcast

Striving to Thriving is your resource for those things related to the biological, psychological and social (biopsychosocial) aspects and challenges of chronic pain. My name is David Hall and I am a certified health and wellness coach, and a Chronic Pain Support Group Facilitator, certified by the U.S. Pain Foundation. I worked in the microelectronics and biomedical device manufacturing industries for over 30 years. In 2007, I sustained an injury to my spine in a bad rollover accident, ultimately requiring the implant of a spinal cord stimulator to manage my pain. Three years ago, because of a surgery that didn’t go as planned, I contracted one of the most painful chronic conditions, CRPS (Complex Regional Pain Syndrome), also known as the suicide disease. Despite these challenges, with the help and education I received from my pain specialist, I made the arduous journey from Striving to Thriving despite my challenges with chronic pain. I have devoted my life to continuing her work, helping those struggling in chronic pain.My podcasts will address a myriad of topics related to chronic pain, neuroscience, wellness, lifestyle adaptation, neurology and psychology of pain, various forms of therapy, and more. I will also host special guests from time to time who provide solutions, treatments, technologies and legislation regarding treatment and care of people afflicted with chronic pain.
