    I am deeply committed to helping people on their journey toward self-discovery.

I can help you to surf the waves of adversity, to open to new adventures and new possibilities where once there seemed to be none.

    Understanding Today’s Pain through Past Ancestral Trauma With Dr. Andrea Moore

    Understanding Today’s Pain through Past Ancestral Trauma With Dr. Andrea Moore

    “I think the biggest thing is just it’s all about getting to know yourself better and using your pain as a way to do that, that no external things can be guiding you, but it’s all about what truly resonates with you and your journey and your pain and your experience….And trusting yourself and starting to build that trust, I think is probably one of the most important pieces”

    Do You Have the Right M.I.N.D.S.E.T. for Pain Relief with Dr. Deepak Ravindran

    Do You Have the Right M.I.N.D.S.E.T. for Pain Relief with Dr. Deepak Ravindran

    “I like to use that term, what’s called trauma-informed pain care, meaning that we need to understand that when we’ve all gone through different forms of trauma, that may be…The trauma that people experience adversity in childhood, to actually the various traumas that we’ve all been subjected to as part of covid isolation, to poverty in different forms, to pressure, to stress, to job, everything, and all of that has an impact on our nervous and our immune systems all the time. And that means that we are always a little bit more vulnerable to feeling threatened, and that threat can be interpreted by our body, as a way of protecting and bringing our pain sometimes in different areas where even imaging may not show anything, so that being that trauma-informed and bringing pain care in that lens, I think has been a very useful way to make sure that every person gets a more holistic way of looking after themselves, and for me to suggest ways to look after themselves.”

    Neuropathy, Chronic Pain, and Opioid addiction with Rose Pignataro

    “My approach to patient care, as well as self-care, is focused on self-empowerment and a holistic definition of wellness that includes not only the physical body, but our emotional, mental, and spiritual wellness. Pain and fear are closely related, and self-empowerment helps diminish fear by taking back control over the aspects of health that are directly within our influence.”~ Rose Pignataro

    Rose Pignataro is a doctor of physical therapy with more than 30 years of experience. She holds a Ph.D. in public health from West Virginia University. Dr. Pignataro the Assistant Program Director and Associate Professor at Emory & Henry College Physical Therapy Department where she coordinates civic engagement and teaches cardiopulmonary physical therapy, wound management, health promotion and wellness, professional practice, and critical inquiry.

    Her research interests and clinical practice include integrative, person-centered approaches to health promotion and wellness, particularly motivational interviewing for a lifestyle change. 

    Dr.Pignataro is a board-certified wound management specialist (CWS, American Academy of Wound Management) and certified health education specialist (CHES, National Commission for Health Education Credentialing). She and her husband, Jack, live on a small farm in Southwest Virginia with their two rescue dogs and a menagerie of chickens.

    Dr. Pignataro’s approach to patient care, as well as self-care, is focused on self-empowerment and a holistic definition of wellness that includes not only the physical body, but our emotional, mental, and spiritual wellness. Pain and fear are closely related, and self-empowerment helps diminish fear by taking back control over the aspects of health that are directly within our influence. This includes lifestyle choices such as nutrition, exercise, meditation, and mindfulness.

    As a disability advocate, Rose also helps both patients and clinicians understand the importance of a collaborative approach to pain management. The clinician may be the expert in certain aspects of medical treatment, but the patient is the expert in what it is like to live with pain on a day-to-day basis, Treatment cannot be successful without the investment of both parties.

    She favors the use of motivational interviewing because it conveys the importance of mutual respect and facilitates therapeutic alliance. If a person experiencing chronic pain is not getting what they need from the therapeutic relationship with their healthcare provider, they are entitled to search elsewhere.

    Granted, this can be difficult because of the lack of proper trainin...
