David Hall, CHWC, is a Certified Health and Wellness Coach Specializing in chronic pain management. He is also a US Pain Foundation Certified Chronic Pain Support Group Leader. For 30 years David worked in the microelectronic and biomedical device industry manufacturing implantable electronic devices such as SCS (spinal cord stimulator) devices. Not once did he ever imagine that one day, he would be the recipient of two SCS devices to manage one of the most horrific pain conditions known, CRPS (Complex Regional Pain Syndrome, also called the suicide disease). David shares the story of his pain journey and the challenges he overcame. He describes how he reclaimed his life from the early days when he first awakened from an induced coma to leaving the engineering world to work in the chronic pain community. Striving to Thriving is not merely the work of an academic or clinician unaffected by pain simply writing about pain, but rather the product of a technical researcher and patient who fought his way back from the fires of hell to help others struggling with chronic pain.
