For Grace founder Cynthia Toussaint is a guest on Dr. Afton Hassett's Chronic Pain Reset podcast that highlights the chronic pain experience as well as the tremendous benefits of self-management for healing and well-being. Cynthia and Dr. Hassett's conversation covered a wide-range of topics that included trauma being a driver for chronic pain, resilience as an essential tool for thriving and the many alternative treatment techniques illustrated in Dr. Hassett's recent book, Chronic Pain Reset. Whether new or old to the chronic pain world, this show is well worth a listen!
Check out our December Story of the Month as we continue our 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 the barrier to her healing. Finally, myofascial release therapy helped unlock her body's secret, leading to the understanding that unresolved trauma was the key.
