Trauma & Pain Stories Launch for 2021

With our February 2021 Share Your Story, we launch a series that will focus on trauma being a driver for persistent pain. Woman In Pain Maria Socolof's neck surgery was clinically successful, but soon life-upending pain radiated in her neck and upper back. After many fruitless attempts to mitigate the pain, Maria started to question her barrier to healing. Finally, myofacial release therapy helped unlock her body's secret, leading to understanding that unresolved trauma was the key.

We look forward to your questions and comments...
