Our mission is to help 100 million people with chronic pain around the world on their journey to find solutions for pain. Chronic pain is at epidemic levels in our society and across the world and our current physiological understanding and treatment modalities are falling short of the goal of finding pain solutions. I aim to teach, inspire and lead the way to help many towards hope of a brighter future, understanding of why pain persists despite treatments, and pain reduction with an improved quality of life.
