008: Taking Charge of Your Chronic Pain with Dr. Peter Abaci
If you are searching for solutions, more joy and less pain, then this episode is for you! If you are suffering from chronic pain, know someone in pain, or have a loved one in any kind of pain, I encourage you to listen to this episode to gather wisdom, turn pain into purpose, and transform your life. Pain can consume us if we let it. It can disrupt our work, limit out daily activities, interrupt our sleep, and affect our relationships. It can slowly take over our lives, rob us of our joy, zap our energy, and make it seem impossible to do much of anything.
But hope is available and change is possible. With proper treatment and proper support, you can conquer pain and have the life you have always imagined.
There are numerous pain specialists who are dedicated to helping others live a good life and because I live with chronic pain from Complex Regional Pain Syndrome, I have met dozens. But I have never met a pain specialist quite as spectacular as my next guest. Join me in this episode as we talk to Dr. Peter Abaci, the author of the life-changing book, “Take Charge of Your Chronic Pain: The Latest Research, Cutting-Edge Tools, and Alternative Treatments for Feeling Better” and “Conquer Your Chronic Pain: A Life-Changing Drug-Free Approach for Relief, Recovery, and Restoration.”
Dr. Abaci is one of the world’s leading experts in pain and integrative medicine. He is the Medical Director and co-founder of Bay Area Pain & Wellness Center, a radio host, a regular contributor at WebMD, and honestly, I’ve never met a doctor quite like him!
He is very committed to transforming pain treatment in America and has truly helped restore the lives of thousands of people that are struggling with chronic pain through his personal and holistic approach.
In this conversation, Dr. Abaci shares how you can conquer and take charge of any chronic pain. He starts by sharing what inspired him to become a pain specialist. He also talks about an expressive way to heal trauma through art.
