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. If you find value in my podcast, please leave a positive rating with whatever service you use. If you have some ideas, topic or constructive comments, please send them to me at david@strivingtothriving.com
