Dr. Katinka van der Merwe, or Dr. K for short, has been the most requested guest on the True Grit and Grace podcast.  I am so honored to have had an opportunity to chat with Dr. K about her outside-the-box approach to treating CRPS, miracles she is performing for patients with chronic pain, and hope she is spreading within the CRPS community. 

If you are like me, and living with CRPS, there are probably days where you feel hopeless, want to give up, and the excruciating chronic pain from “the suicide disease” consumes your entire body completely draining you. First, I am glad you are here because you have found your support system.  And second, this episode is full of the kind of HOPE that makes each cell of your being feel a little lighter. 

Dr. K is the founder of Spero Clinic and a leading CRPS specialist who has created the world’s leading 12 week pain relief program.  She is on a mission to create a place of love, support, and hope for those who live with constant chronic pain. She is changing the lives of those who suffer from nerve pain and their family members who are impacted by it. 

Restore your hope, get answers, and learn health tips to improve your overall well-being and reduce your pain.
