Cathy’s approach to pain management is different.

It identifies the missing factors of chronic pain and

creates the road map to recovery.


Pain statistics from the 2014 NIH Task Force:

Chronic pain affects approximately 100 million adults in the US with the cost of $635 billion annually.

Each year low back pain is estimated to affect 38 percent of people worldwide


NIH National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke, Low Back Pain Fact Sheet:

In 2010 LBP became the 3rd most burdensome condition in the US in terms of mortality or poor health.

Only ischemic heart disease heart disease and COPD rank higher than back pain in terms of mortality or poor health.
