Paindemic: A Practical and Holistic Look at Chronic Pain, the Medical System, and the Antipain Lifestyle
In the current medical system, there are over 100 million Americans experiencing pain of varying degrees. Join us this afternoon for a perspective from Dr. Melissa Cady, board certified physician in anesthesiology and pain medicine who teaches with osteopathic and allopathic approaches. Dr. Cady has suffered from chronic pain, which she has managed conservatively despite the opportunity to do more risky interventions. Paindemic offers the rational approach of the anti-Pain Lifestyle as a solution to addressing chronic pain effectively with less risk.
Are you suffering from chronic pain?
Do you feel that everyone, including your physician, thinks you are crazy?
Are your loved ones and friends tired of hearing you complain?
Are you becoming more depressed and anxious because of your pain?
Do you find that you are isolating yourself from others?
Are you sick of taking pain medications?
Do you question whether injections or surgery are right for you?
Is the medical system frustrating you or letting you down?
Are you searching for a better way to address your pain?
Answering yes to any of these questions means you are part of the very serious pain epidemic in our society. You are not alone! Millions are suffering. The United States is the most advanced society in the world; yet, the majority of pain medications, procedures, and surgeries are not solving this Paindemic.
Paindemic will open your eyes to what you should know. Too many unnecessary and risky interventions are being done with little benefit and at great expense. It's time to gain a better perspective to guide you down a more rational path to address and improve chronic pain, even low back pain. Ignorance is not bliss. What you don't know about your pain could hurt you.
ABOUT MELISSA CADY
Melissa Cady is a native Texan. With a love for learning and an active lifestyle, it is no surprise that she eventually pursued the medical profession. Her appreciation and fascination with the human body transitioned her from personal trainer to medical student.
Cady is a physician trained in an osteopathic medical school followed by allopathic postgraduate training. She is board-certified in anesthesiology and fellowship-trained with a board certification in pain medicine. She currently practices medicine in Austin.
Her initial desire to become an author originated from her realization that one of the greatest needs within the medical system is education, which is undervalued, underpaid, and therefore, under-delivered. Cady's belief is that education of the general public can empower and direct people toward better choices and health while avoiding unnecessary medical interventions.
Melissa Cady takes great pride in building rapport with patients by being educational and practical despite the overwhelming pressure by the medical system to minimize time with patients, move more quickly, or succumb to irrational expectations or politics.
