Expertise

I am an Olympian and World Champion in the sport of triathlon. A bike accident in 2009 left me with intercostal neuralgia. I have been battling chronic pain since then. Exercise has been my primary means of therapy, along with traditional modalities of pain management (nerve blocks, ablations, surgery, medication). My book, The Champion Mindset: An Athlete's Guide to Mental Toughness, describes mental toughness techniques relevant to the pain population. TrainAwayChronicPain is a program that uses aerobic exercise, strength training, and mental toughness training to help chronic pain patients Tame their Pain.
