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.
